I'm trying a new rice recipe tonight, it's in the oven. It's a sausage rice using long grain rice, a dried soup mix, onion, celery, Jimmy Dean's regular sausage, soy sauce and water. I decided to use beef broth for most of the liquid, since I had to use some up that was in the fridge. I also thought it would add a richer taste. We'll see what happens.

On the side.. salad, corn and garlic bread.

We were watching the Sweet 16 with guests so for appetizers we had smoked tuna dip with baguette & wings that were smoked then quickly fried. They were definitely a do-again. For dinner, we had spanikopita, Moroccan carrots & roasted beets with tarragon & balsamic. The food was great but both our teams (SU & Arizona) lost...bummer.

Bought a whole haddock. Head & spine went in a pot with some celery, onion, garlic, thyme, cheap pinot gris, water, salt, and peppercorns. Simmered, and then strained an hour later for a couple quarts of fish stock.

Rendered some pork fat and lightly caramelized some minced yellow onion. Added some flour for a quick blonde roux and whisked in the stock.

Added cubed potatoes and cooked until they just started breaking apart. Cut the haddock filets into chunks and mixed them into the pot with a few tablespoons of heavy cream. Brought it back to a bubble and then off the heat. Chowda!

Mini Snickers bar for dessert followed by more Pinot Gris...

Here was dinner. It was delicious, but was hard to photograph.
