Cost Saving Dinner
With the high gas prices these days, home cook dinner is the way to safe. Due to the hike in gasoline, the grocery we buy at the store is more expensive too. Cooking dinner at home can be easy and it doesn't need to be TV dinner or frozen pizza. Just throw a Tilapia fish fillet (about $0.65 each, $2.50 a pound at WalMart frozen seafood section) in 450'F oven for 10 minutes and you get yourself a delicious dinner. For us, I prepared a simple eggs fried rice to go with it. Another suggestion is, you can make some instant white rice with mango salsa to go with the fish too.
For preparing this fish, I just lined the baking pan with a piece of aluminum foil so that after we done eating, I just threw away the foil. No washing necessary. First, I sprayed the fish with cooking spray. Then, I seasoned the top of the fish fillet with Bay seasoning, a little mixed peppers and lastly some homemade bread crumbs (yup just the top). Then it went into preheated 450'F oven for 10 minutes. Viola, you have yourself a healthy, cheap, delicious, fast and easy dinner.
