Flounder Packets

Shhh!  Don't tell the family what a low-fat, low-calorie this dish is...it is so full of flavor they'd never believe you anyway.

4 flounder fillets (6 oz each)--you can substitute catfish, perch, sole or orange roughy
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped peeled cucumber
2 green onions, sliced
4 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil ( a little of this goes a long way!)
1 tsp ground ginger
Hot cooked rice

Place each fillet on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12-in square).  Sprinkle with salt and pepper; top with red pepper, cucumber and green onions.  Combine the soy sauce, oil and ginger; drizzle over vegetables.  Fold foil around the mixture and seal tightly.

Place on a baking sheet.  Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.  Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.  Serve with rice.

How About Actually Driving In The Car?

What do driver's eat while driving?  On long distance trips, I often prefer a full six course dinner behind the wheel.  (Just Kidding) :)

A California insurance website said its survey of drivers found that candy bars, French fries, potato chips and chicken are the best foods to eat while driving.

The online survey of 1,500 licensed drivers at least 25 years of age found the motorists' most preferred foods while behind the wheel were: candy bars, fries, potato chips and chicken nuggets.

The website said other foods drivers enjoyed in their vehicles included: donuts, fresh fruit, hamburgers, breakfast sandwiches, hot dogs and ice cream cones.
