We are home , to snow and high winds! Was the weather trying to tell us that we should have never gone -or was it my mom's accident, surgery and nursing home stay or my hospital stay in Florida that were speaking "loud and clear."But there were some good times - good dinners and visits from family. Mom's turned out badly and I did miss the one with my daughter and granddaughters but, spouse was the perfect son in law and dad and grand dad - a caring man and host extraordinaire.
I do guarantee that the appearance does not reflect the taste of this meal - the food was delicious, the wine superb and the ambiance and conversation were delightful!
Entree: Rainbow Trout. Dipped in egg white and flour, the filets were seasoned and coated with a mixture of melted butter, lemon juice, white wine, honey dijon, pepper and herbs de provence. The filets were browned in a skillet and finished on a low heat. The gas stove was perfect to control the heat.
Side: Basmati Rice with Green Onion and Zucchini. The rice was cooked and then added to a skillet to heat with diced green onion and small slivers of zucchini, which had been splashed with EVOO.
The wine: Sonoma Cutrer Les Pierre. Superb as always.
I am on a restricted diet and will not be back to normal (my normal) cooking and dining for a few weeks, but I still have some Florida entrees that I will share in the coming days! And please do forgive me for this bland looking meal. It truly was delicious!
