Our addition

I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. Yesterday Emma and I surprised Travis with a little fish waiting in our house. šŸ™‚ I love surprising other people.


Travis enjoys fish. So much so that we have a clean large aquarium and all the toys, cleaners, filters, food and pebbles. Empty. For sale. Why did I buy a boring beta fish then?!

We have the…lucky (?) talent of buying fish that are pregnant. So in one night we go from having 2 fish to about 30. Yeah. Won’t go into the drama fish stir up in our family. In which case you ask me how dramatic can fish really be?!


Trust me my friend, fish stir up drama.

I chose a beta fish because:

1. You can chose the sex. Not to be sexist, but a male beta fish won’t surprise you with baby fish. So yeah, guess I am.

2. Ā Emma really wanted a purple fish.

3. They can live in a bowl without any filtration.

4. Emma’s been into Nemo so…


SO… we bought this little (MALE) beta fish which is still un-named. Emma loves him and had to eat her breakfast next to him as he was eating his.


Hope you have a great weekend full of rest.


Cajun Talapia

I have found the easiest meal EVER. Just bake a coupleĀ Cajun seasonedĀ fillets of Talapia in the oven at 350’F for about 15-20 min (of until flaky) and you have the best fish ever. I found my fish at Safeway and it was $1 for 1 fillet- not too bad in my eyes. You can also buy them in bulk. Trav really liked it and I’m sure I’m going to make this a staple in our home. And I’m thinking about fish sandwiches too- one of Trav’s favorite sandwiches (yuck!) But I’m sure he’ll love it. šŸ™‚

Talapia and dip

I also made the tarter sauce. It’s mayo, sour cream, chopped garlic and lots of dill.I don’t have the Ā measurements because I made it based on theĀ consistency. Sorry, but I hope you make this- it’s an amazing meal in less than 30 min. Bingo. Have a great weekend.
