Feeling like a whirling dervish these days! Still so busy work-wise (what's up with that??). There are some major work changes coming...more about that another day (right now it is still TOP SECRET). Anyhoo, yesterday was a busy one and today has already been busy with phone calls and emails (and it's not even 7:15 yet!!).
But it is Thursday, so let's talk food. As y'all know, I'm sans oven at the moment. And the past few days have been too stinking hot for me to ask Fletch to fire up the grill. Last night's meal was salmon (which I always say in my head pronouncing the "L" as Fletcher's Mom always did - LOL). Usually I bake or broil fish, but that was out of the question. So last night I poached it. And we really liked it! And it was so FAST. I had individual filets and they did have skin on them (yuck...but once cooked the skin comes off easily). In my large frying pan I put:
- 1 Cup of dry white wine
- 1 Cup of water
- 3 garlic cloves smooshed/squished
- a bunch of dill (dried because I did not have fresh)
I brought that to a boil then turned it down to simmer. Once simmering I slid the filets into the pan, covered it and let them cook for ~ 10 minutes. Pulled them out, put on plates with wedges of lemon and voila! Dinner!~!
The next time I think I'll add some fresh ginger to the mix. Soy sauce and/or sesame oil would also be good. Easy enough to play around with it.
We had a bit of rain last night which dropped the temp from 92 to 78 in no time! Refreshing and the rain smelled so good. More rain is in the forecast for today and it is not supposed to be as hot. With the cooler temps, Fletch will fire up the grill tonight. T-bone steaks are on the menu with a salad. Colin will be coming over and we can't wait to hear all about Austin!
Meanwhile, I have a bunch of reports to run (my usual Thursday financial reports) so I'd best get to it. The weekend is almost upon us and for that I am grateful. Have a good one!
