We had fish tacos - I bought cod pieces at Trader Joe's for $3.99/lb. What a deal! Sides were refried beans from Aldi's topped with a little co-jack, and homemade mango-pineapple salsa. Wanted to add a fresh peach to that, but all I saw in the store were two-tone bocce balls.

Himself kept saying "mmmmm" so I guess he liked it! The cod had a bit too strong of a fish taste to me tonight. Guess I'm not a cheap date when it comes to cod since any frozen one tastes "fishy". Next time I'll make these with fresh cod, or flounder, or I might give tilapia a chance again. OR just toss more Penzeys Arizona Dreaming on the cod before I broil it.

I make spaghetti with a meat sauce, green beans on the side, and garlic bread. I tossed some fresh garlic, diced bell pepper into the cast iron along with the hamburger. Served on a bed of Barilla spaghetti and some parmesan cheese. I used Del Grosso Roasted Garlic pasta sauce. Local market had it on sale for a buck a jar.

I was joking, as the southwest U.S. is not known for lobster (or any other seafood).

My own feeling is that if the water is warm enough in August to swim in, it's not nearly cold enough to produce good lobster. I might be starting a "where does the best lobster come from" debate, but that might be kind of fun, with the right attitude.

Spicy Honey Garlic Chicken in the Pressure Cooker
The sauce was OK, but not worth repeating. I made a 2/3 size batch of sauce, as there was less than 2 lbs. of chicken. I used about a tablespoon of sriracha, as a teaspoon would get lost with the sugar in the ketchup and honey. Also added some ginger. Still, it was mostly just sweet without much complexity.

The chicken thighs come out so, so tender in the pressure cooker. I'm going to have to hunt for other recipes using chicken thighs.

Just in case you are not aware, Florida lobster and the lobster in your area are quite different. Ours have no claws and are more like huge shrimp. The taste of each is also quite different and I wouldn't use interchangeably. BTW, spiny lobster are also found all along the Gulf Coast, which includes Texas, which I believe is considered part of the Southwest. As far as water warm enough to swim in, in our part of Florida try November, even December sometimes, even for those of us who live here, not to mention the tourists who swim in January when the air temp is warm as well.

Pictures look lovely!
Tonight I am bringing home some Italian imported food from a local Sicilian restaurant. Not sure exactly what it's gonna be but I will post again when I have been there. Nothing beats my Sicilian mother's cooking though, it's something special indeed.
