Clearin’. It. Out.
We enjoyed this tilapia (on sale for $1.99/lb !) with Brussels sprouts from the freezer, and rolls from the freezer.

- In a skillet, saute the diced zucchini and halved grape tomatoes with some salt and pepper. Saute over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the tomatoes have popped and wilted and the zucchini has turned opaque in color.

(This would have been well under $5 if I’d waited and used tomatoes from my garden!)
