i've had a good day with the kids, saturdays are always fun. for breakfast, we had leftover meatza and pizza. before that, i went and did a horizontal boot camp. total killer and i've been tired all day from that, but otherwise, had a lot of energy. i took my vitamin, vitamin d, bio astin and chlorella with ashwaganda. came home and made the coconut crepes (made with coconut flour)  with the chocolate and vanilla cream sauce. so yummy and sweet.
and so good for you!
we had lots of fruit, including a plumcot (plum and apricot) that came in our bountiful basket today.
for dinner i'm making quinoa (i know, it's not on the challenge, but i have guests over that wanted it), roasted potatoes (request from one of my sons), roasted asparagus (another request from other son) and honey dijon onion crusted catfish.

here is the catfish recipe
1 onion finely chopped
1/4 cup (or so) of honey dijon mustard
garlic salt and pepper
catfish fillets (or nuggets like i used)
parsley flakes (which i forgot)

mix onion, mustard and some salt, pepper, garlic powder and i added some crushed garlic
lay catfish on a baking sheet and cover with garlic salt and pepper. then spoon on the mustard/onion mix. sprinkle on parsley flakes
bake in oven at 350* for 20 minutes, then on broil for 4-5 minutes

oven roasted potatoes
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup butter melted
2t beef bouillon paste
1 t thyme
1 t marjoram (which i didn't use)
3 T dried onion flakes
1/4 t celery salt or seed
2 lbs potatoes

chop up potatoes small and put on baking sheet. mix everything else and drizzle over potatoes and coat with the mixture. bake for about 30 minutes on 450*. turn potatoes while baking. bake until tender and golden brown

cheese roasted asparagus
1 t olive oil
asparagus, ends trimmed off
2 T green onions (i only had dried onion flakes)
2T celery, chopped
2 T grated parmesan
1/4 c. bread crumbs (i did not use this to keep it more with wellness mama's challenge)
1/4 c. melted butter
1/4 t. salt (i put more on than this)

oil baking sheet. layer asparagus on. mix all other ingredients and spoon over asparagus.
bake at 375* for 45 min or until tender. serve on a white platter to bring out the green, vibrant color. top with more parmesan!
