Brown Butter Tilapia with Basil Breadcrumbs

I have been so busy lately looking for a new apartment, that I have been neglecting the blog. It's been a long hard struggle looking for a place that is up to our (Jeffrey's) standards. I looked at my 13th place yesterday! The good news is, 13 was a lucky # for us and we liked it, now we wait and see if they like us....
Today was really fun as a close friend who moved away earlier in the year came in town for a visit. Krista, asked my friend Brook and I to lunch so we could catch up. I love when relationships can by pass distance. It seems I have a lot of those in my life and when we are reunited it is like old times! Here is a cute pic of us 3. PS: My hairstylist cut my hair too short yesterday, dang it!
