Tilapia with Citrus Ginger Sauce

Tilapia with Citrus Sauce

You all know what the week before a move means….Clean out the freezer and refrigerator!!!

Because ours will be a local move, if I don’t use the 25 pound turkey in my freezer, I won’t be too worried.  I can take ice chests from one site to the other without too much trouble.  I am, however, trying to use up the fish and seafood.  The bounty of the sea makes me a little nervous when not properly cold.  Our hot humid weather can melt things in minutes!Tilapia with Citrus Ginger Sauce

We have enjoyed shrimp, salmon and tilapia lately.  Scallops are on the menu for later in this week.  The nice thing about seafood is that it is like homemade fast food.  It cooks quickly and is easy to prepare.  A little tweaking of herbs and spices and you have a new meal every time.

And as if our family’s schedule isn’t quite full enough with the move, today I am taking  my eldest to have his wisdom teeth removed.   The silver lining is that his convalescence will force me to remain home and pack.  I have boxes and boxes to fill.   I think milk shakes are in order for tonight….another silver lining :-)
