Choose your own adventure

Dinner tonight included surf & turf. I chose to have surf, while C had the turf.

My Rainbow Trout

In a small aluminum tin I first coated both sides of the fish with olive oil (and a little hot chili oil), then sprinkled with minced garlic, seasoned breadcrumbs, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, salt & pepper. (Jeanne - I was pretty sure this is how you made the fish in Canada that was sooo good, so I stole the recipe! Thanks!)

About 20 minutes on the grill (or until flaky and the crumbs are crisp).

C's Rack-O-Lamb

Marinated in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh rosemary, minced garlic, chopped tomato, salt & pepper.


Breakfast, fresh picked minutes earlier from the garden

When life gives your tomatoes...

Another great Christmas gift from Mom & Dad. With a bushel of tomatoes on the kitchen counter I pulled out the box of attachments I got for Christmas for the KitchenAid mixer. One of them was a fruit/vegetable strainer. In no time we had a pot of beautiful red tomato sauce.

and when life gives you fresh tomato sauce and a little gin...
