Good Afternoon Friends!
I hope you all are having a relaxing weekend. I wanted to sweep in like a “Little” magical fairy to bring you a roundup of my favorite things (both Cg/l and not) that I’ve been enjoying while in lockdown! I hope these inspire you, and help you make space for fun and play too!
My Favorite Video of the Week: “One Zoom to Rule Them All” (LOTR Cast Reunion!)
Y’all I literally squealed with glee watching this 50 minute video. Not only is it hosted by Josh Gad (ahem, Olaf!!!), but he got everyone together! And I do mean, everyone! If you’re as big of a LOTR nerd as I am, you’ll certainly enjoy this cast reunion.
My Favorite Little Space Item of the Week: Nookums Paci-Plushie Buddies ($14.99 USD)
I have gone back and forth trying to find a binky that works right for me. While I don’t go around with a binky in my mouth during the day, I do enjoy snuggling up with this paci-plushie while I doze off to sleep. It’s soft, and fits in my hands. So, now I can enjoy sleeping with my normal plushie, Mutsy, as well as my new bun bun binky! 🙂
My Favorite Recipe of the Week: Simple Cod Fish Tacos
Are you ready for an easy, cheap, delicious recipe? Then, here we go!
- 1 lb. frozen cod, chopped (Trader Joe’s sells it for about $5 USD) **thaw for 2-3 hours beforehand**
- 1 bag of shredded cabbage
- 1 bag of frozen vegetable fajita mix (onions and bell peppers seasoned)
- 1 bag your favorite tortillas
- 1 small carton sour cream
- In a frying pan, drizzle some olive oil and toss in the fajita vegetables. I also add some garlic powder and taco seasoning to ramp up the flavor even more, but if it’s pre-seasoned and you prefer a more mild taco just leave the extras out. Fry until tender, about 8-10 minutes on medium-high.
- Lay out 2 tortillas per person on a plate and scoop the veggies into the tacos.
- While your pan is still hot and seasoned, drizzle a little more oil and add in the fish.
- Season the fish with garlic powder, taco seasoning, Old Bay seasoning, salt, and pepper. Fry for 4 minutes per side. Then remove from the pan and divide amongst the tacos.
- Top with shredded cabbage and a dollop of sour cream per taco and serve hot! Dig in!
