Getting Settled

Oh the joys of moving! Takes forever to pack things up and then just as long (if not longer) to unpack! Moving also means eating take out and super fast already prepared meals! We tried our best to stay semi healthy while moving but didn't always work out that way.
It's a month after closing and we are getting settled. Pictures are going up on walls and stuff is finding it's permanent home. Meals are also coming together. The kitchen is put together enough to actually want to cook a full meal and try new meals even!
Check out our beautiful new island!!

Last night's dinner...

Maui Maui with Pineapple Apple Salsa

3 maui maui fish fillets- Any white fish will work (We normally split a fillet between the two kids)
Pineapple- We used half of a fresh pineapple diced small- You could use a large can of pineapple chunks if needed
Half an apple diced small
handful of cilantro chopped
lime juice from half a lime- we only had the fake lime juice last night so just a few squirts (if you use a real lime and not the fake stuff in the plastic lime bottle, squirt the other half of lime over the fish before baking)
red pepper flakes (didn't add this to the kids' fish fillet but did to the adults)

Preheat oven to 350. Place fish in sprayed baking dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika, and optional red pepper flakes and lime juice. Bake for 10mins and check. Continue baking until forks easily. Ours took 20mins but they were thick and still slightly frozen.

Mix pineapple, apple, cilantro and lime juice in bowl. Let it sit until ready to serve (can be made a day before and store in fridge)

Place cooked fish on plate and top with salsa. Enjoy!
Can't wait for more cilantro meals!!!
