We piked up a couple of pieces of fresh fish for tonight's dinner. We got salmon for me and haddock for SO. I'll pan fry my salmon while baking SO's haddock with breadcrumbs and butter. We'll also have mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus. We finished off the carrot cake so I'll probably have some oatmeal raisin cookies for dessert later.

I went to our local green grocer aka Sprouts Farmer's Market,
and they have a wonderful young Man who makes Sushi,
I talked about him before, right?

So tonight will be Sushi, my Quick Cucumber Kim Chee (or kimchi, how ever), and I'll deep fry some Japanese-Style Fried Chicken or Kara`age

Easy night. Frozen pepperoni pizza and a diet coke. Pizza is made by a local company in a small community mid state. Lots of good quality cheeses.

We had bowls of shrimp soup and toasted tuna melts.

The shrimp soup recipe is from a quirky tourist-trap restaurant in FL. Back when my SIL and her family lived in Orlando (and Dad would come over from Cape Coral), we'd all drive over to the east coast to eat at "Dixie Crossroads". If I'm remembering right, a cup of their "Original Shrimp Soup" would come with every dinner order. I finally decided to make a small pot of it tonight. Looks like we'll be having this more often now that I found out how quick and easy (and delicious) it is.

Last night was my FIL's last night in Virginia for the winter. He and DH are driving back to MI now and DH is renting a car to drive back home Monday.

So I made chicken avgolemono soup and a Greek salad for dinner, along with leftover rolls I had baked earlier in the week. Toasting them brings back the yummy crust

We had crumb-coated baked cod, along with steamed asparagus. Finished the bread pudding I made earlier in the week.

This is what we had last night. It was soo good, thought I would share the recipe with you all. DH is not too fond of fish, but even he enjoyed it. Cheese, you know. lol


Salmon Fettuccine

8 oz. uncooked fettuccine
1 1/2 TB butter
1 1/2 TB all purpose flour
2 cups half and half
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tsp dry sherry
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 TB butter
1/2 lb salmon fillet, cut into 2" pieces

Cook fettuccine according to package directions; drain and set aside

Melt 1 1/2 TB butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add half and half; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheese, sherry, salt and pepper. Keep warm.

Saute garlic in 2 TB butter in large skillet. Add salmon; cook until fish begins to flake.
Add sauce and fettuccine, tossing gently. Cook over low heat just until heated. Serve immediately. Yield: 4 servings.

All I did was halve the Original Shrimp Soup recipe on "Dixie Crossroads" website. Here's what I used:

1 cup diced potatoes
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 quart water
1 tablespoon of chicken bouillon or shrimp bouillon (I used 1 tablespoon of Better Than Bouillon Lobster)
1/2 pound shrimp (I used defrosted)
1/2 tablespoon corn starch

Bring water, chopped veggies, and bouillon to a boil. Simmer until veggies are tender. Add shrimp and return to boil. Blend corn starch with water, add to soup pot, and simmer until it thickens a bit. Enjoy!
