Alger Mediteranian Pesto

This is a modified version of a recipe I found online and ended up being a huge hit! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

4 filets flounder (or fish of choice)
1/2 jar julien sundried tomatoes in olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, diced
1-2 tsp. Johny's garlic spread
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1/4 C. rice vinegar
1/2 C. freshly shredded parmesan cheese

Combine tomatoes, garlic, onion, & garlic spread in saucepan on med. heat. Heat through and stir until onion is cooked through and transparent. Add lemon juice and vinegar and heat thoroughly. Add cheese until melted through. Spoon over cooked fish filets and enjoy! You may find, you didn't make enough! (We like to eat these in a corn tortilla with our peach salsa, also listed).

Strawberry Pina Colada Smoothie

1 C. Vanilla flavored yogurt
4 C. frozen strawberries
handful blueberries (if desired)
1/3 can bacardi pina colada drink mix
rice milk or milk of choice
Directions: combine above ingredients adding milk until mix comes to desired consistency. If you love pina coladas, I think you will love this also!
(Tyler and I ran into this drink by substituting the pina colada mix since we were out of orange juice, we were delighted with the results, hope you are too!)
