Orange roughy with original sauce; rice recooked with mushrooms and onions; radish greens – 16 October 2018

D suggested, since I was going to the Bowl and we had no specific plans (except using leftover rice) that we could have fish of some kind. This is odd, b/c he is not a big fan of fish, b/c … Continue reading

Pan-fried tilapia; Moros y Cristianos; radish greens – 8 June 2018

Microwave-poached salmon with pea pods; Thai jasmine rice – 5 June 2018

Another really nice dinner for the “new” (newly received) Mary Grabill dishes. Since the salmon has a lot of liquid in its parchment packet, the brief sides, adding the characteristics of a low bowl, make this design an excellent one … Continue reading

D discovered the Spanish chorizo I bought awhile ago for I-don’t-remember-what, and decided to use it. I said “pasta?” and he said “Nooooo” in a “don’t be ridiculous” way – as if somehow this particular kind of sausage would not … Continue reading

Leftover taleggio/kale risotto with freshly cooked parsnips on top – 28 December 2017

Tilapia; piperade; brown rice – 8 December 2017

D really wanted to try the piperade alongside a fish. I went to the Bowl and texted him some options, and he selected tilapia. No bones! That’s a big plus for me. The smallish fillet I got was maybe half … Continue reading
