nope, not too late. i seem to plan about 4 dinners every day for just the 2 of us, and end up taking out or making something completely different.
haven't gotten around to the fish market to pick up the snappers, but it's on my to do list, eventually, maybe. lol.
my wife says she doesn't like fennel, but that doesn't mean she really dislikes it because she may not have ever had it. but, if she really doesn't like it, and i ignore her and make it anyway, she will make her own dinner and i don't like leftover fish. phew.
soooooo, i think i'll try fennel in 2 smal snappers, and either celery (she's not a big fan of cooked celery either) or leeks, like kansasgirl suggested. i'll post my results, and thanks for everyones suggestions.
A true lover of nature does not despair now that his mistress has turned a colder cheek.
