Say Grace the game is about to start!

 tortilla chips

One of my secret loves is to close all the curtains, unplug the phones, gather food and drink and settle in for ( in my opinion) an all too short Hockey game on television.  I honestly don’t care who is playing.  I love pretty much everything about it.  Okay, I love to go and watch in person, however, hold up in our family room with really delicious food and wearing warm, fuzzy, crazy colored socks, snuggled under an electric throw blanket with a quilt on top…………….oh my goodness pass the tortilla chips.  Today’s recipe to share is one of those good ones for game night (to be honest, it doesn’t have to be a hockey game……..I have heard of other sporting events that some people like to watch) and eating in front of the television.  Yep, we all need to do that once in a while.

Before I share the recipe, here are the details about the blogger I borrowed it from.

The thing about following a blogger is that after a few months or weeks or even a couple of years of reading you sort of feel like you “know” him or her.  You talk about them like they are your friends.  Mr. Right has an issue with not knowing the actual name of the person writing the blog post.  I say, you know, the gal who writes the vegan blog?  Or, she’s the one with the cute dog and writes the sugar-free blog?  You know?  Yeah, you know, she is the gal in PA that writes about her family and faith and her heritage?  No, he does not.  He likes to connect a name to the amazing blog story I am going to talk his ear off about.   So here she is:

Her name is Kelly.  She writes an amazing blog about, well her life.  Oh and doing it without sugar.  She is pretty normal from what I can gather….hubby, kiddo, dog, makes food, walks through life, ups and downs, working on weight “issues”……..all seems rather normal to me.  She is unknowingly helping me to remember everything delish and good does not have to include sugar.   Check out her blog and the recipe I stole, borrowed from her.  You will tumble over in love with her.  Yep, she is one cool girl.   http://nosugarsweetlife.com/content/beach-vacation-lime-avocado-ceviche

You all know we are trying to include 3-4 avocados a week into our food line up.  Here is an easy way for us to accomplish part of that goal (get it?  hockey – goal). lime and avocado

Lime & Avocado Ceviche
12 ounces white fish
4-6 Limes, squeezed or juiced
2 Tablespoons salsa
2 Tablespoons orange juice
1 Tablespoon olive oil
Salt & Pepper
1 huge Avocado, diced 
sometimes, I add a big ol handful of cooked shrimp
oh and some chopped cilantro for color & taste

Instructions

  1. Thaw & Dice White fish.
  2. Marinate the fish in 1 cup of lime juice (I used the juice of 4 -6 limes) — for 4 hours (or more, up to 24 hrs) in the fridge.
  3. After 4 hours, drain/pour out the lime juice, leaving just the fish.  The fish should no longer be translucent, but completely white, as the acidic lime juice has “cooked” it in the marinating process.
  4. Mix in the salsa, orange juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and avocado.
  5.  Mix in 1/4 cup diced red onion
  6. Mix in the diced avocado.
  7. Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, or just spoon it right in 🙂

You know the drill folks,  grab a ton of paper napkins (this can be a messy one, however once you figure out how good it tastes, you will not want to spill a drop), get something really icy cold to drink  (think juice of one lemon, crushed ice, 2 teaspoons of agave nectar and filtered water).  Lemonade is the perfect choice with this food.  Just perfect………where was I? Oh yes, get a plate full of tortilla chips and a bowl full of goodness,  say Grace, & in life, just like Hockey, keep your stick on the ice and dig in with gusto.
