Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko

I recently tried Progresso's Lemon Pepper Panko bread crumbs.  Regular bread crumbs will never do again. I was in the mood for some Tilapia.  Usually this is a meal I would make for myself when Hubster and the kids are at church.  They're not big fans of fish...yet.  I didn't want to wait for a night alone, though, so I made this special treat for myself while making fried popcorn shrimp for the kids.

I prepared my tilapia by by lightly rubbing it with EVOO and then coating it with the crispy panko bread crumbs.  I then cooked them in a pan with a little EVOO and they came out crispy and delicious.  I added some Spanish rice (topped with cheese) and a spinach salad and the end result was this...

Whether baking, frying or broiling, panko bread crumbs provide a flavorful crunch you just don't get from regular bread crumbs.

Right now, Progresso is hosting a contest to an amazing Wine and Dine Event with Michael Chiarello, in Napa Valley.  Complete with a weekend of food and wine, air fair and lodging.  This is a trip for two.  You must enter by December 31st, and must be at least 21 years of age and a legal US resident.  I really would LOVE to win this trip!  You can also find great recipes and cooking tips for using panko on Progresso's site, as well as a coupon for $1 off any flavor of panko bread crumbs.  The lemon pepper was awesome.

The information, Progresso Panko bread crumbs, and a Michael Chiarello's cookbook were sent to me by General Mills through MyBlogSparkThe opinions are authentic and 100% mine.
