Still Life with Paper Bag Tilapia

by nicolecallihan

Inspired by my brother’s culinary wizardry with parchment paper,
I have stumbled across my latest delight:
Lay out a brown paper bag (not even a nickel); slice a deli zucchini (89 cents);
pour one teaspoon of evoo (for your healty oil!) and dust liberally with salt and pepper (cost negligible).
On top of that place one rinsed-off, thawed-out piece of frozen Sam’s fish (99 cents);
close the bag; microwave for three minutes and fifteen seconds;
douse with lime juice and Frank’s red hot sauce, and WaLa!
Yes, folks, for less than the price of a subway ride to Coney Island:
The World’s Most Perfect Lunch!
Bon Appetite!
