Paul's stopping to pick up some fresh fish. We're going to TRY to make sushi for the first time.

so the boy and i are gonna go to a fish market and either get some shellfish for a cioppino/zuppa/marechiare (anyone know the difference between these? they seem to be interchangeable names in most restaurants), or if the trout is fresh, i'll make my balsamic and herb veggie stuffed baked whole trout.
So, Buckytom, you got me thinking and I pulled out my Larousse (which hasn't left the shelf since I graduated two years ago!) and found this out.

Cioppino - "A dish from San Fancisco consisting of a stew of white fish, large prawns (shrimp), clams and mussels, with a garlic, tomato and white-wine base."

There were no listings for zuppa (except for zuppa ingleze which is a wonderful dessert) or marechiare.

However, we did make a marechiare, which was mussels and clams with fresh Plum tomatoes and shallots.

As for zuppa, from my understanding, it is an italian term and used for many different "soup-like" dishes. I may be wrong on this one.

Hope that helps. Or are you sorry you asked?

Speaking of cioppino, funny you mentioned it, as I was just looking at a recipe from Von's while I did my on-line shopping. Thinking it would make a great Valentine's dish...

The boy had some lovely organic haddock fillets that he coated with herbed bread crumbs and broiled. I made him sauteed mushrooms & shallots served over herbed quinoa and some steamed broccoli.

I had the quinoa and broccoli and might have a small cup of left over soup I made last night.

Some lovely chocolate later for dessert!

pan fried smoked ham, roasted sweet potato chunks, fresh cole slaw, and ww dinner rolls.

But, I've got brownies in the oven. We are going to some friends' house for dinner tomorrow, so that was a good excuse to make some brownies. Just hope I remember to take them tomorrow

Good luck, Lefse, as long as hubby stays motivated, he'll do fine with your help!

We're having NY Strip steaks with risotto and roasted vegetables.

I'm also making boiled brown rice for my dog who seems to have caught a stomach bug.

Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!
