Tilapia fillet cooked in salsa – 2 June 2013

Writing this 4 July, from the photos and a pretty good memory…

We had some of D’s fresh salsa left over – no doubt from nachos for a previous day’s lunch – and I wanted to cook fish, and also we had some new Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs we wanted to try. That all added up to this dinner.

The wine is from Trader Joe’s – a Picton Bay 2012 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. I bought three Marlborough SBs at TJ’s at the behest of one of the staff, who said they all were exactly alike and cost the same. I’d had the Kono at a party, and liked it, and it turned out to be only $7.99. His evaluation was not far off. We liked this wine very well.

Dessert: R brought over a most excellent galette of nectarines and cherries. Wow.

Here’s mine 🙂






For lunch we took R over to the French School’s annual fete for lunch, b/c it’s fun and we like to support them as they are good neighbors. I had the couscous plate, with sausage and chicken and who knows what else.
