All in all, it went pretty well! Monday's meal was Roasted Tilapia with Lemon and Baby Potatoes.
Not being a huge fish fan, I was not super stoked, but the fish was my favourite part!!! It was sprinkled with paprika and that was, in a word, awesome! I was a little peeved to be asked to buy fresh thyme when I would only be using 8 sprigs - but alas, such is life.

First things first - I organized my ingredients. Pretty simple really...Note the large container of fresh thyme (sigh)
They didn't have baby potatoes at the market, so I settled for new potatoes (are these one in the same?) and instead of halving them, we quartered them.
Here is everything, all ready for the oven. This only took about 8 minutes to wash, cut and toss together.
After cooking for a little while, the little fishies were ready to meet their maker.
Here, the taters are almost done and the fish is sprinkled with the delicious paprika and s & p.
Oh my, this is a weird shaped photo! Anyway, here is everything all cooked and ready to eat.
J and I each had one piece of fish and about a quarter (maybe more) of the potatoes, and that was enough.
We've still go enough for leftovers tomorrow and we both can't wait to show off to our coworkers :)
J's comments - fish was flaky, "It tasted the way fish is supposed to taste", he would take the lemon out before plating (but I thought it looked pretty).
My only critique - Not being a fan of olives, I found there were WAY to many in the recipe. It called for 1/2 cup and I only put in about 6. They flavoured everything in the meal, and that was okay, but I really didn't enjoy biting down into them...so if you're an olive fan - GO FOR IT! Otherwise, I would pull them out after cooking / before plating.
