Something's a Little Fishy Around Here

Hey everyone! Hope your week is going good and is winding down nice and slow towards a fun or relaxing weekend. A lot is still going on around here—stuff as in packing, checking stuff of my to-do list, and enjoying the glorious summer weather in between! Besides that, something a little fishy has entered my apartment—let me explain.

  Gorton's Signature Grilled Tilapia made a welcomed appearance in my freezer. I bought this at Wal-Mart in the freezer fish section for $3.29. That’s for 2 generous sized fillets—not bad, but I was even more delighted when I logged on to the website to find out I could snag a coupon for next time since there will be a next time! I am always fussy when it comes to frozen fish, but this left no trace whatsoever hinting that it had come from the freezer! It was seasoned perfectly and super flaky & tender! It really did taste “5 star” as the box implies. Here’s a few key points about em’:

Tilapia Signature Grilled Fillets

  • Flame Grilled flaky white Tilapia
  • Mouthwatering blend of classic seasonings
  • Only 80 calories and 2.5 grams of fat per fillet
  • Natural source of Omega-3 DHA and EPA
  • Easily prepared in the oven or microwave

So if you’re in the mood for something a little fishy, I suggest heading on over to your local grocer and looking for good old Mr.Gordon—hopefully he won’t leave you disappointed!

What is your favorite fish?

 I am really fond of any fish really—cod, salmon, tilapia, walleye—when your from Minnesota, fish is in your blood!


I finally got my kitchen finished and furnished up today! So of course I need to share—the living room will be posted tomorrow and then hopefully the other rooms as soon as they are ready! Enjoy the tour!
