Pretty uneventful day. I decided a couple of days ago that
I'd go to the gym for as long as I'm unemployed. I may be
poor, but at least I'll be in shape. They have a really
vicious stomach crunch machine.
For dinner I made myself pan-fried breaded snapper, with
mashed yukon gold potatos and canellini in a sauce of
onions, marjoram, butter and tomato paste. The snapper was
marinated in olive oil, rice vinegar, balsamic vinergar, soy
sauce and little dash of worcestershire sauce, which gave it
a sweet yet slightly tangy flavor. I breaded the fish the
way my mom taught me, first dip in flour, then beaten whole
eggs, then bread crumbs made by grating a dry leftover
pieces of french bead. The beans came out a bit too buttery,
but the fish ended up really really good. I need to try that
marinade again sometime.
I didn't hack much at all today, but tomorrow I'll
definitely put in serious work on the mystery project.
Since some people seem to like my dinner descriptions,
here's what I've made the past two nights:
Wednesday: Spaghetti with white-wine cream sauce and peas (I
must say the cream sauce really loses something without
tarragon, but I made up for it by throwing in a bit of
Tuesday: Pan-fried cubed potatoes with onions, chorizo,
paprika, black pepper and salt. A very orange meal. I put in
a bit too much olive oil, I'll have to watch that for next
time I make this dish (which Steph requested). Maybe add
some black beans too.
