Evan's first trip to the Zoo...

Last Sunday my mom, my nana, and I decided to take Evan (my nephew) and Landon (Evan's cousin) to the Birmingham Zoo. It was great weather and we had so much fun!! Evan loved all of the animals, especially the monkeys, tiger, and all the ones in the petting zoo area. Here are some pictures from our day...

Nana, Landon, and Evan looking at the fish and birds...obviously they were all looking at something different and wanted to point it out :) 
 me and Evan looking at the birds
 everybody loved the sea lions

 I wasn't so sure about it either!
 He loved feeding the animals

 Train ride!

 Monkey time!
 They really liked the monkeys

They loved this tiger... Evan would touch the glass like he wanted to pet it. I told him...not a good idea
 Riding the carousel
 He wasn't so sure at first but ended up loving it!

Nana and her two Great grandsons at the Zoo... so special.

Chocolate Rolo Cookies.

 Thanks to sixsistersstuff.blogspot.com and Pinterest, I made these Chocolate Rolo cookies for school and there were delicious! I would recommend eating them right when they come out of the oven (*sigh* amazing), but they were still great once they cooled off! And the best part...only 4 ingredients!

1 pkg. Rolo's
1 box Devils Food Cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 c. oil

Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs. Take a small ball of dough and form a ball around the rolo. (Only use enough dough to cover the rolo so it can spread through the cookie.)

Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
Enjoy :)

Tilapia Tacos.

Tilapia tacos... YUM!
Daniel and I love fish...especially tilapia! This is a great, quick meal that is also healthy! I found shells that were 2 points each, so on weight watchers one taco was only 4-5 points. 

2 (1/2 inch-thick) slices white onion
1 (8 oz) package mini sweet bell peppers
Cooking spray
3/4 tsp. salt, divided
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper, divided
4 (5 oz) tilapia fillets
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1 small jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced
8 lime wedges (optional)
**For Daniel and I we just did 2 tilapia fillets and each had 2 tacos. The recipe calls for grilling the onion and peppers, but I did them in the skillet and they were great. 
Preheat grill to high heat.  Arrange onion slices and bell peppers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray.  Grill onions for 12 minutes, turning occasionally.  Remove onions and bell peppers from grill, and let stand for 5 minutes.  Slice onion rings in half.  Thinly slice bell peppers; discard stems and seeds.  Combine onion, bell peppers, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. black pepper in a small bowl.

Sprinkle fish evenly with remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and remaining 3/8 tsp. black pepper.  Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Coat pan with cooking spray.  Add fish to pan, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.  

Warm tortillas according to package directions.  Divide fish, onion mixture and jalapeno slices evenly among tortillas.  Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
