Dinner Wednesday, 2-18-2015 ~ Fish, or no fish?

It's Ash Wednesday in some households, ours included, so we're doing fish for supper tonight. I pulled out a package of TJ's Albacore tuna steaks that I will sear on the CI pan. I have two zucchini that want to be cooked before it's too late, so I'll saute them up with some sort of herb blend. The rest will be from pulling out all the containers of veggies and starches that are from the last couple of days. I plan on shopping tomorrow and I want to see the back of my fridge before I head out!

As Harry Cobean would say, "wot's on yer plate, mate?" (Wonder where ol' Harry went...)

We don't observe this, but we are having a Caribbean lobster dish.

I'm fasting today (not for any religious observance reasons, though) so nothing to eat until tomorrow.

I'll be having the last of the leftover chili and corn bread.

Steve, you have some will power, coming here to the dinner thread when you're fasting!

The noise is enough to drive anyone out of the house with the kitchen cabinet work, so we went out for a nice main meal lunch at our local Pub. We both had fish and chips (hold the chips for me, add salad). Steve had their black and tan onion rings.

Tonight we might pick up some fast food sandwiches..fish for me, beef for him.

I large salad and baked cod.

I melted a tablespoon of butter in a shallow Pyrex dish, coated two little cod fillets with the butter and topped them with a mixture of 1T seasoned breadcrumbs and 1T grated Romano cheese. Popped them into a preheated 400 degree oven and baked them for 15 minutes.

Sounds good, CG....I'll have to try those tuna steaks next time I go to TJ's. How did you like them?

Aunt Bea, your cod fillets sound delicious.

Kay, with all that noise, I would have wanted to go out to the pub for eats, too! Will they be done tomorrow?

I miss Harry too, he was fun and shared a lot of interesting step by step pics of his dinners. Hope he's doing well.

No Cheryl the noise will go on for two more days here. Tomorrow afternoon and Fri. afternoon we'll be at baby Cheyenne's house taking care of her. No baby can make that kind of noise.

I try to make sure I have a package in the freezer, handy for when the whim (or a planned meal) occurs. I guess that means we like them! We do like our tuna kinda well-done, and I use a liberal hand with a seasoning blend I like for it. I use Sylvia's Secret Seasoning, plus a few twists from my pepper-and-salt mill. Sometimes I'll squeeze a bit of lemon juice on it once I plate it, sometimes not.
