Panko Baked Cod with Forbidden Rice and Butternut Squash
These colors are just like Halloween!! We thawed out some frozen cod from Trader Joe’s and baked it for about 20 minutes with a crust made from panko bread crumbs and Asiago cheese. Just press the toppings on the top and bake! Very simple and delicious.
The forbidden rice was a gift we got for Christmas, and it’s very interesting but delicious. Very chewy. Kind of like eating shoe string casings with rice on the inside. But I love chew! Here’s a link to the first time we made it with more detail: Forbidden Rice + Luck.
And lastly, we reheated some leftover butternut squash. I topped mine with 2 tsp of brown sugar!!
This dinner was so filling and really hit the spot! Hot tea to drink (it’s cold again!)
Total calories were about 423 with 5 grams of fiber and 30 grams protein.
Chem lab went well and I was done a little early! I always spend my rides home deciding what to have for a snack. But I have to say, my lunch held me over QUITE well today because I didn’t really need a snack until 5:00. I decided to do something different and make a smoothie with some frozen mango we’ve had in the freezer for ages.
I used about 1 cup of the mango (thawed it some first in the microwave or my blender leaves big chunks), 2 oz vanilla hemp milk, 2 oz skim milk, and 1 tbsp flax. It was PERFECT!! I enjoyed it like a custard with a spoon to make it last longer.
I have decided to take my Stats test tomorrow evening instead of Friday afternoon, so unfortunately I’m going to be slammed these next 24 hours. I’ll be in and out, but I hope to catch up on all comments tomorrow night or Friday 🙂
