Chili-Lime Marinated Tillapia

Today was an exceptionally great day at the gym – it was empty, like became completely empty and I was the only person there so I stayed for two and a half hours. There are these really really irritating people who frequent the gym, including this woman who uses the place to train people and takes up half the place and is loud. But mostly takes up half the place and all the mat area and it is really annoying. This may seem like an odd complaint, but this is not a public gym, it is for the people who live in the co-op and there is a small additional fee to use. It bugs me that someone wants to use it as her personal office for her business.

Anyhoo, this tillapia can be used a multitude of ways – fish tacos, plain, maybe with some scallion -pea and lemon zested rice, or on sandwiches. I am doing the latter, since the husband wanted to grill it if we were going to have the fish tacos and it was kinda cold today and we haven`t used our grill yet and no clue if there is propane left in the tank from the summer so I nixed it. It`s super fast and easy.

Shrimp Sandwiches with Chipotle-Avocado Spread

I got this recipe in my inbox from the gojee.com and it looked pretty fantastic. I made a few changes, but this is pretty easy and leaves me with some leftover to make fajitas later this week. Strike that, I am just eating the sandwiches all week.  They are really that good. This recipe makes like 4.

Black Bean Soup with Bonus Green Chile Cornbread

I think I am getting a cold. If I do I am screwed. The husband has a cold and I am trying to stave off mine since my event is on Wednesday and I don`t have time to be sick. I was able to at least finally get my table seating done for the event. It takes forever to seat 300 guests and block it out keeping mindful that one wrong table could cost me donations during the live pledge.

So yesterday I finally had to break down and go in to grab a dress. The six dresses that I had shipped from Shopbop.com just all were fails. Note to Diane Von Furstenberg, your quality is in the can for Fall 2011. So while getting my hair did, I trolled Barney`s Coop online, and while it was snow/slushing(?!?!), I figured, at least the soho store would be empty, so armed with the knowledge that there were 10 promising items on their website, I broke down and went in. Yes, it was empty, though would it kill them to stock a size 6 at the soho store? I`m 5`9, that is not a complete fatty, jeez. I walked out with one dress and waiting for another that was at the Chelsea location to be fedexed over to me. Why that can`t messenger it, I have no clue.

So I have a seating chart done, a dress, my nails are now did and I am trying not to get a cold. Time to make a black bean soup. This one`s kinda spicy cuz I like spicy and I`m hoping to kill the germs.
