A Recipe and Some Ramblings~

Hello Everyone!

Finally getting over this bronchial crud I've had for weeks now.  Thought I would share a recipe the hubby and I enjoyed last week.

Fish en Papillote

Ingredients:

1/2 red onion, julienned
1 zucchini, julienned
1 large carrot, julienned
1 clove garlic, minced
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 (4 oz) sole fillets, hake, flounder or other white fish
1 lemon, thinly sliced, seeds removed
8 sprigs fresh thyme

In a bowl, mix your julienned veggies with the garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Place your fish on a piece of parchment paper.  Top the fish with the veggie mixture, a pat of butter, lemon slices (we omitted since I cannot have lemon) and a few sprigs of fresh thyme.  Make a packet with the parchment by first rolling the parchment lengthwise, then rolling the ends towards the middle on both sides.  This ensures that the steam stays in.  Bake in a 350* oven for approx. 11-15 minutes, depending on your cut of fish.

Serve with steamed Jasmine Rice.







So simple, and very delicious.

I just arrived back home last night after spending the weekend in the great state of Texas!  It was mother-daughter weekend for my youngest's sorority.  We enjoyed our time together, and I cannot wait until she is home for Thanksgiving and I can have both my girls home at the same time.


And, let's just say...the team, with their current record so deserves this!!!


The new riverside Baylor Bear Stadium.  Sic 'em Bears!!!

I have been working on a few different projects around the house, and hope to share them this week as well.

Happy Monday!!

Hi Lauren, I think I just deleted my prior comment so I'm sending another!
Wonderful picture of you and your daughter and how fun to spend the weekend with her in Texas. Glad to hear that both girls will be home for Thanksgiving. It's so important to keep the family traditions alive and having the kids home is always so special. Your fish dish looks so good and seems easy enough to prepare. It's good to see some healthier dishes at this time of year. Hope you continue to feel better! I've been ill too and it's taking forever to go away. xxleslie

Great picture of you and your daughter!

We have fish for dinner several times a week and this would be a great new way to fix it!

Welcome back from your hiatus!! You and your daughter are adorable in your boots!! Sad about our Baylor loss, but we'll come back this week! We love fish, but most often I cook with tilapia. You think tilapia would work with this, or does it need to be a heartier, thicker fish? Looks yummy!!!

Welcome back sweetie! Glad your daughters will be back for Thanksgiving! Love that recipe! Yummm!
