Valentine's Day

I had this post all typed out on Thursday, and I have no idea why I didn't post it!  So, please forgive me, but pretend it's Valentine's Day when you're reading this:

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!  I hope you are feeling loved today!  I'll tell you what, Valentine's Day in a high school is pretty funny.  Y'all remember that movie Valentine's Day from a few years ago?  When Taylor Lautner gave Taylor Swift a huge teddy bear?

Well, I saw that all over the school today.  So funny!

My Valentine (aka husband) woke me up with breakfast in bed.  He got out of bed at 5:30am to cook for me, and he doesn't even need to be up until 9!  I was so surprised, and it was a great way to start the day!  Husband of the year, maybe?  I think so.

I've got a very easy Crock Pot recipe for you today!  This is recipe #7 for PBFinger's Crock Pot Challenge.  I found the recipe on Stephanie's blog.  She used her slow cooker EVERY DAY for a whole year!  Wow!

Here's how I made Orange Honey Tilapia:

  • 4 tilapia filets
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Honey
  • 1 can mandarin oranges
Lay out tilapia filets on a sheet of aluminum foil.  Pour enough balsamic vinegar on each filet to cover the top.  Then, pour a little bit of honey on each filet.  Last, drain the mandarin oranges and pour over the filets.  Create a pouch out of the aluminum foil.  Place the pouch into the crock pot, set on high, and cook for 2 hours (or until the fish flakes easily with a fork).

I served it with steamed fresh broccoli and cheese.  Very great flavor, and very easy to make!  This is a great recipe for making something quickly when I get home from work, and it'll still be ready by dinner time.  I also love the minimal clean-up :)

Well, it's time to go spend some time with Joe!  His Valentine's present is some of his favorite beers at House for Beer while watching the Miami Heat game.  Have a wonderful rest of your Valentine's Day!  I love each and every one of my readers!
