One Of Them Bowl Things

If you can't stand for your one food to touch your other food, bowls are not for you. I used to be One of Those People, but I got over it. It wasn't from my mother telling me -- repeatedly -- "It all touches each other in your belly."

I think I got over it because I started liking the combinations of colors and visual textures when everything's all stacked up together. I started liking flavor blends and combined -- what's the fancy term? -- oh, yeah, "mouth-feel." Doesn't sound very high-falutin', does it?

ANYWAY, I make bowls of things now. Here's a recent one:

That's lettuce (not Romaine), lemon pepper Tilapia, fresh green beans, and grated Italian cheeses.

I make the Tilapia like this:

Spread a FROZEN Tilapia filet with vegan margarine and sprinkle it with salt and lemon pepper. Heat vegan margarine in a skillet at a little below medium heat. Put the fish in, buttered side up. Cook for about 7 minutes. Turn it over and cook it for about 7 more minutes. Easy-peasy.

I'm still perkin' right along in Story A Day May. Today's story also has a kind of food in it. Hop on over and give it a read, why doncha?
