Good morning all...
the other day I decided to try overnight oats in a jar, as you may see in many other blogs such as (Julie, Tina, Courtney). I was initially not to sure about how it would turn out but I was pleasantly surprised.

To my jar I added;
1/3 c. oats
1/3 c. water
1/3 c. of skim milk
2 tbsp. chia seeds
1/3 c. frozen blueberries
a small handful of kashi go lean crunch

yumm.... don't mind the mess of the computer, eatting and reading blogs in the morning ;)

This was my mid-morning snack... as most of you can tell I can't always make it until lunch because my stomach starts grumbling.... Sometimes I am lucky enough to get a second to eat something other times not so much.

Juicy... mmm.....

Dinner plans... was salad with baked stripper... but when I got a call from Wally saying that he was going to be home for dinner I decided to add sweet potato fries to give hime a little more substance.

First, the salad - organic greens I received from the CSA, tomato, green pepper, and mushrooms.
Sweet potato fries -
bake at 450 for 20-30 minutes - stir about half way through
I coat them in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Also sprinkled with a little paprika once on the baking sheet.
The main course...
Baked stripped with butter and more paprika from this website
2 large fillets of stripper (or any fish)
1/2 onion slice thinly and separated into rings
1/4 c. butter/margrine melted
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp lemon pepper
1 lemon
sprinkle of paprika (recipe called for cayenne pepper)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Dip fillets in melted butter. Place on broiler pain (I just used a baking sheet). Sprinkle evenly with lemon pepper and paprika. Place onion rings and sprinkle with Worcestershire sauce.

Bake 8 minutes. Turn broiler on 500 degrees- allow fish and onions time to brown (3-6 minutes). Remove, cool for about 3 minutes. Any serve with lemon juice.

I will leave you guys with some picture of the new property!!
