Dinner of champions
Tonight I made baked fish with veggies in a parchment bag. It was beyond amazing.
I used Chilean Steelhead*, asparagus, and cherry tomatoes. On the side we had rice.
*Don’t ask me what that is because I don’t know, it was on sale. I am pretty sure it’s either another name for salmon or related to salmon.
Recently I have learned to poach an egg, it’s an amazing skill and one I never acquired as a child because my parents had a nifty little egg poacher doo-hinky that required nothing but an egg.
The mistake I was making in the past was having the water at a boil but the trick is to keep it just under a boil. Also, adding a dash of vinegar.
Now I have the skill and time to make myself yummy breakfasts like the one I had here. I poached an egg, made some toast, and I threw some cherry tomatoes in olive oil and salt and gave them about 10 minutes in the toaster oven on bake. Then I grabbed my usual morning green tea and patted myself on the back for eating such a colorful and healthy breakfast.
I was a chicken and dumplings virgin - never had it and never made it…until the other night. I made a big pot of chicken and dumplings and you know what? I love it and the husband loved it too, he had seconds. I took extreme joy in using my cookie scoop to scoop the dumplings - go multiuse kitchen tools!!
Recipe: Chicken and Dumplings
P.S. Admittedly chicken and dumplings does not photograph beautifully, I apologize for that. It still tasted great though.
