I had my photography class tonight, so DH cooked dinner, and it was a doozie. We had bought some wahoo a while back and put it in the freezer; he thawed it and cooked it in the cast-iron grill pan with a sauce made with butter, olive oil, garlic, parsley, Cajun seasoning and lime (we were out of lemon). It turned out great. See?



Next time, though, we thought it would be better to marinate the fish for a half hour or so in the sauce before cooking. We also had some leftover purchased stuffed crabs and a fresh salad.

Made a Penne Arrabiatta with Chicken Breast. Maybe one day my daughter will say, "Pasta again?!?!?" but for now it's all good.

IC, it looks wonderful! My kids have never gotten tired of pasta even though I serve it a lot. And I use canned sauce - just think how happy they would be if I managed home made like yours. If your daughter ever balks, just remind her of the poor children in Texas who sit down to pasta with Prego!

Hey, there. Rachael Ray has a really easy recipe for homemade marinara sauce: Meatball Subs Recipe: Recipes: Food Network It actually seems like more of an arrabbiatta sauce to me, because of the red pepper flakes. But it's really good.

I got lazy tonight and decided to go for the liquid variety of dinner. The hubby cooked himself up to greek style marnated chicken breasts on the sandwich maker with bacon, cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, fried egg and my home made mayo abd hot sauce.

Thanks GG! I think I could make that sauce and since I have everything I need right now in the pantry, we're having pasta for supper with that sauce!

Your fish looks delish gg. Wahoo! (Couldn't resist.) Haven't tried it, what is the texture taste like. Thanks for sharing.

IC, your Arrabiatta looks yum too. Too bad we can't combine the two on one virtual plate. I almost never get tired of pasta.

Thanks. As a graphic designer, I almost took that as a dare

Oh, about the wahoo, it's a firm fish, like salmon, but not meaty like swordfish; the filets we got were about 1.5 inches thick. It has a mild flavor, which is why we thought it would benefit from some marinating.
