Tilapia, Broccoli, Brown Rice

Last night I did something I rarely did – I made two versions of dinner.  One kid-friendly, one not so much.  This generally only happens when we’re having something (like pan-fried tilapia) which is made “to order” anyway, and I can easily leave out an adult ingredient for one portion.  In this case, Dylan’s fish did not get dredged in the hot chili-garlic sauce before sauteing.

The brown rice and broccoli I made earlier in the day, while Aeryn was napping, so all I had to do at dinnertime was pop the rice in the microwave, the broccoli back into a warm oven, and fry up the fish.  When I go back to work, I guess that kind of prep work will have to happen on Sundays.  So much organizing!
