i love when dinner just comes together. i went to whole foods from work to get more fruit & veggies, and while there decided that i didn't want to really cook anything.
i asked for a single serving of whole foods' spinach, walnut, and gorgonzola salad from the prepared foods counter ($1.52), and then headed towards the fish counter, where i asked the guy what his favorite pre-seasoned fish was (i've never bought anything but plain fish!). he said he really liked the parmesan tilapia, so i bought a piece ($2).
when i got home i realized the fish + salad would be quite puny alone... and suddenly i spied the beautifully ripe plantain sitting on my counter...
i started the plantains first, in a bit of olive oil + sea salt sprinkled on top, and when they were halfway done (i felt like a chef for my precise timing), i flipped & moved them to the side of the pan, added a tsp or so of butter (the fish guy said butter + olive oil would be nice, and i agreed!), and added in the tilapia. the tilapia took no more than 2 min per side.
i ought to do more dinners like this... so quick and satisfying.
