I found this recipe for Cornmeal-Dusted Catfish with Quinoa Saute in a Cooking Light magazine. Sounds fancy, doesn't it? I've been wanting to try more quinoa (pronounced 'keen-wa') recipes because I feel like I could like it. It's good for you and something different, right? So far I haven't been all that impressed with quinoa, but I'm hopeful! Jimmy, maybe not so much. He's a good sport though and eats whatever I make (love you, babe!). Anyway, I thought this recipe sounded like it had some potential.
It may have been better if I'd actually used catfish. I don't know, I've never eaten catfish. Since I didn't have catfish in the freezer, I used tilapia instead, thinking that maybe it would be okay...
...and then I realized that there wasn't any quinoa in my pantry.
Uh, what was I thinking here?
Tonight's dinner became Cornmeal-Dusted Tilapia with Brown Rice and Sauteed Vegetables... which tasted way too healthy for our liking. Don't get me wrong, we ate it. It was probably even good for us. I just won't be making it again. ;-)

Little one did gobble up some fish, though. That's something!
So, as we were eating it, I said to Jim, "At least there wasn't any quinoa..."
His response? "True dat."
