Oh, luvs, I love monkfish. We used to get hit here but haven't been able to for a couple of years.

I WAS going to have a prosciutto/feta cheese/mint pasta dish tonight, but I had lunch out with a friend and am as stuffed as the Thanksgiving Day turkey, so not sure if I'll even bother with supper. If anything, it'll have to be something light like a salad.

Cinco de Mayo Leftovers!

We have so much good leftovers from our Mexican fiesta last night... I'm thinking the shredded pork tamales and drunken beans all over again!

I love monkfish... but when you are stuck as far from the ocean (Indiana) as we are here, "fresh" usually is far from it.
