So since Jenn is staying with us, I have introduced her to new foods and different ways of eating them and making them! Also teaching her how FRESH is ALWAYS THE BEST! HA! I am trying to get her to like bell peppers and onions cause I LOVE THEM, So she should too! HA! So far I have introduced her too: Soy Beans, Capers, FRESH mozzarella (not the shredded stuff), hmmm what else…San Marzano tomatoes, Spaghetti squash, Cajun spices… Dijon/grainy mustard… ginger…Noosa yogurt and NORMAN COFFEE And EXTRA sharp cheddar cheese and Duck Dynasty just to name a few! (I know Duck Dynasty isn’t a food) I have also shown her my LOVE for paper towels and windex and that a SUPER CLEAN Kitchen is a HAPPY Kitchen! Introduced her to red wine too!

She has introduced Charmin TP to Normy and me and Gallo Family wine

and Dark chocolate covered pomegranates and sweet potato chips! And we LOVE to quote the movies Napoleon Dynamite and Wedding Crashers!

 

So Jenn likes Tilapia, so I wanted to make some Tilapia for her, but Normy doesn’t like Tilapia, but I do! So 2 against 1 so Let’s make some Tilapia!
