Blackened Tilapia Sandwiches with Avocado Spread

What new shows have you watched this season so far?  Anything you really love?  Hate?

I have a bunch that I’m looking forward to…but, I can’t even begin to contain my excitement about the Dancing With The Stars All-Stars season that started this week.  I LOVE the show and having all the great ones from seasons past on at the same time makes me giddy.  Well, actually, Joey Fatone is the one who makes me giddy…

(did I say that out loud?)

So, now my nights are filled with TV watching, once again…good thing I can multitask and write my blog posts at the same time 🙂  And this sandwich is perfect for when life gets busy, thanks to back-to-school and the new primetime season.
