3. cute accessory
4. random pieces of romaine lettuce
5. blackberries and Greek style yogurt with honey
I poached the fish using a recipe from Simply Recipes subbing chives for the dill, cause that's what I had. Too bad I didn't catch the part about covering the pan - ended up spoon-sloshing the liquid on top to get it to cook :)
The potatoes are just quartered and boiled with some butter and chives. I put a little Caesar dressing in the chick.
Have I mentioned my new found love for the Fresh & Easy? Let me mention it again. See that salmon up there? Know where I got it? I'll tell you - Fresh & Easy. Ten ounces for $3.99 and as fresh as I'm ever likely to taste living here in the desert. Cooking and eating fish just isn't something I grew up doing. Where I'm from there's only one kind of fish, and that's catfish and you eat it dredged in cornmeal and deep fried and if you're smart you go out for it so you don't mess up your kitchen. And that - while delicious - is nothing like this. I don't know where I was going with that.
Anyway, Boo loves fish so I try to fix it for her at least once a week. Unfortunately she slept through dinner so the Boy snagged half of her fillet and the rest ended up here. This is just the sort of lunch that I love packing for work. So much better than anything I'd have time to run out for plus the added benefit of being very nearly free!
