Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This was our first Thanksgiving at home and we cooked a feast!
The three trout we caught the other day made a delicious dinner. I fried the fish in sesame oil and butter with onions, tomato, mushrooms, black olives and bacon sausages. I finished the mix with a dusting of paprika and voilà.
About a year ago I discovered that I enjoy cooking and I have since taken over the role of cooking for my family. Instead of following recipes, I just experiment until I find a good taste combination and go with it. LRH recently suggested that I blog some of my recipes, so here is my first try: a tin-foil halibut bake. (if you can stand the price of halibut, that is).
So, I was adventurous and tried a new dish at our local Mexican restaurant. It was called a Mojarra Frita and was described as a fish recipe garnished with lettuce, tomato and pico de gallo. Sounds delicious, right? Well, maybe not…
Before the waitress could put the dish down on the table, Siena start exclaiming “fish, fish, fish!”. Yep, she recognized that her Daddy had, in fact, ordered a fish (quite literally). At least it wasn’t a total loss: the rice and beans were good.
I cooked an incredibly yummy pizza tonight. Simple to make: just a large, thin-crust Boboli. Topped with cream cheese, pesto, tomatoes, mushrooms, black olives, bell pepper slices and avocado slices. Just ten minutes of baking at 450 degrees Fahrenheit (232 degrees Celsius) and add the tomatoes and avocados after it comes out of the oven. I’m going to try making it next with sun dried tomato pesto and maybe multi colored bell peppers.
