I found this recipe and it sounded interesting, but I usually have to make some changes with spicy-ish dishes for the family. No big deal. But I also wanted to add in some more avocado (a favorite for all of us now), and I decided to cook it sous vide.
We are a fish-loving family. It’s nice to go to the store and pick up whatever is cheapest/freshest/on sale/etc. and know that we will like it somehow or another. I have yet to make a whole fish, which I want to try, but we like our fish in a skillet, grilled, from the sous vide, with sauce, baked, etc. This recipe is a good one if you have someone wanting to dip their toes into fish. We used rockfish instead of cod as the original recipe called for, just because of a sale, but it is a really nice mild fish that worked well for this. The fillets are super thin and you get a lot of crunchy bits to go with the fish. Everyone also really liked the dip.
Were you worried we still lacked an oven? It ended up only being about a week, which is nothing in the long run. I was so relieved to get it fixed. The guy left, I picked up the Fudgelet from school, then came home and made this cake spur of the moment.
This isn’t my first time making this kind of recipe, but I had my best luck with this recipe and am happy to keep making them since all of us were fans. This is one of K’s favorite dim sum treats, and I am excited to make them at home.
Hello hello. It is time to update you on the last 2 months with the Chiplet! He has still been causing quite the stir here. Sometimes he is super sweet and snuggly, and other times he is throwing food and heavy objects. So, you know, all the fun parts of a toddler. He still causes just as much worry as when he was a baby, if not more. I read a post the other day that newborns are the best and it only gets worse. I don’t know if I agree with that completely but I do feel that there are ups and downs with all of the ages. I do like that he can express himself even if I don’t always understand him completely.
This is a perfect recipe to share since I am currently without an oven and you can make all of this with just the stove. In fact, I am making it again because of this. If you’re wondering about the sauce, we were able to enjoy it as a family since I used a dairy-free alternative for part of it, and you don’t even notice it mixed with the other ingredients.
As I write this, I have no working oven. I had someone come yesterday…and all they did was damage the screws that held the oven into the wall. So then I had to have a different person tackle the screws so that tomorrow the first person can come back and hopefully repair the oven. Because I really do miss it. I’ve been terribly sick all week with a cold and am finally getting better, which means I am finally up to more cooking. Like cakes. I luckily had some cake because I made it shortly before my cold and I couldn’t taste anything so just saved it. But I am running low and I also want to use the oven for other things, like dinner. I have a stove, a microwave, and a toaster, so I am not entirely without appliances, but the oven is making me sad. Fingers crossed it gets repaired, otherwise I will have to wait much longer if it needs to get replaced. In the meantime, I am sharing some recipes I wish I could make.
