Fish and a Meal Plan

If you're here for one of the reveals, click the links below

Yesterday we got a wild hair and set about getting our fifty-five gallon fish tank in order. And, we even got some fish!
Meet Louie (top) and Pablo (bottom), our two tiger oscars. They seem to be best buds as they really stick together more than I've ever seen oscars do before. As well, Dyson and Hoover (algae eaters) are new to the tank, but they're too busy at work for anything as mundane as a photo shoot. 

There's something so soothing about the sound of an aquarium running and I'm a happy girl to have some new pets. I think the cats like them too.

Anyway,  it's Monday and I actually have my menu all planned out so let me get to that.

Breakfasts: Cereal/oatmeal, muffins, cinnamon sugar croissants, whole wheat waffles, eggs w/bacon & toast

Lunches: Soup & grilled cheese, bean burritos, turkey sandwiches, cheese quesidillas, stir fry (from leftovers), tuna noodles, leftovers

Quick Red Curry with tuna and peas (from Quick & Easy Thai by Nancie McDermott) w/ jasmine rice
Soup (from freezer)
Ground turkey tacos w/corn

Snacks: blue corn tortilla chips & salsa, crackers & cheese, yogurt pretzels, nuts, granola bars, fruit, raw veggies (carrots), yogurt almonds

There's a new necklace and a re-listed necklace now in the shop
Fill Life JUNK Necklace
Brighten the Nest Necklace

That's it. I'm done. I promise! I'm going to get back to watching my fish! ;)


  1. I love Aquariums but I hate cleaning them lol. They are just so lovely and peaceful to watch and I love the sound of the water as well. I love the new necklace! It is so whimsical. <3

  2. The smashed potatoes sound yummy

  3. Het- I hope they are. This will be my first attempt at them. I hope they are easy as they sound! eek!!

  4. Ooh, ooh, pretty necklaces!! And I'm a menu maker, too. Yours sounds delicious. Enjoy!

  5. Hope, I love Oscars. I used to have one a long time ago in the 90's and he was wonderful he would eat from my hand, but he met an untimely demise at the hands of my then husband.
    Your menus are always so yummy and so are your jewelry creations.

  6. My son had a goldfish when he was little. I was the one who got the honor of cleaning it. But I still enjoyed hanging out watching the goldfish swim around his tank.

    Your necklaces are beautiful.

  7. Berry- I've had fish on and off my whole life, but I'm fortunate that my husband does an okay job of taking responsibility for the tank. He's a lot more knowledgeable about it than me. I just watch the fishes!
    I'm happy you like the necklaces and appreciate you saying so. It means a lot! :)

  8. Dyson and Hoover - you made me laugh out loud with this one! I never got more creative naming tank dwellers than Goldie or Gill...


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.
