Sick of Fish

Ok - we did have pizza on Sunday but only because my hubby, Bruce, requested it. He had been at the coast fishing and we could have dined on lovely, fresh fish but as he put it, "I'm sick of fish," so pizza it was. We get ours delivered from Pie Works - very tasty and not anything like Papa Johns or Dominos.

Last night we did have fish - fish tacos. They were great and simple. Bruce dunked them in milk and then lightly breaded them with flour (seasoned with chili powder, salt and pepper). He "woked" them. Warmed up some corn tortillas on the grill pan and served the tacos with garnishments of chopped cabbage, monterrey jack cheese, slicced black olives, sliced green onions, guacamole, jalapeno peppers, fresh salsa and a mix of sour cream/plain yougurt. In hindsight, I would have "spritzed" the fish with some fresh lime juice.

Tonight's dinner is already in the works (at noon). Chuck roast, covered with thick slices of onion, topped with peeled potatoes and carrots, and a bayleaft - in the crockpot. When all is cooked to my liking, I will drain off the juice and remove the fat and then thicken it with flour for gravy. I will quickly saute some mushrooms and add them to the gravy.

Served with fresh bread, sliced apples and some slices of good cheese. I think all food groups are covered here and now I will go and do something more fun than cooking - I'm going to go to Great Harvest for some nice, freshly baked bread.
