Fancy Feast, Stanley Style

Sweet Cajun Mahi Mahi Over Spicy Kale
Butternut Cranberry Bacon Side
Cinnamon Apples

Here it is. Flavor on your plate and in your mouth. If you double the fish recipe, you'll have
enough for lunch the next day. Get all the fixins you don't already have and you'll be ready
to cook this for your love-hun-babe-wifey-hubby-bunny-sweetie-babycakes...
whatever weird name you call him/her!

Ty's Sweet Cajun Mahi Mahi over Spicy Kale

2 mahi mahi fillets (Costco item)
1/8 agave or maple syrup
3/4 tbsp cajun seasoning 
(Ty's favorite is Slap Ya Mama...we use it on everything. No joke.)
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix your goodies except for the fish in a small bowl. Spoon the sauce over your the fish. Cook
for 5 minutes on one side, then cook as long as needed to finish cooking the fish thoroughly.

bunch of kale, chopped
paprika, couple dashes
slap ya mama, couple dashes
dash of sea salt
1 tsp olive oil

Heat the olive oil on a skillet, add your spices and cook until fragrant. Add your kale. 
Stir around occasionally. Allow to cook until they get dark green in color.

Cori's Butternut Cranberry Bacon Side

1 pack of precubed butternut squash (from Costco)
3 pieces of bacon, cut into small pieces (Costco item)
1/4 C red onions, chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries (Costco item)
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (out of the shell, bulk item)

Heat a skillet on med-high heat. Add your bacon and let cook for a 3-5 minutes. Then add 
onions and saute for 1 minute. Place all the butternut squash cubes into your skillet (if you 
find the bacon doesn't produce enough grease to cook your cubes, add a little coconut oil). 
Once most of those ingredients are close to being done, add your pumpkin seeds and cranberries.

Dummy-Proof Cinnamon Apples

1-2 apples (the pack you bought at costco)
Dash of cinnamon

Cut your apple into slices as big or little as you want.
Sprinkle cinnamon over the apples.

Hope you enjoy!
