My husband has been away all week at a trade show so tonight I thought I would treat myself to a lovely dinner... Dinner for me*** I scour food blogs, watch the Food Channel ALL the time and read cookbooks*** It all started with this recipe for Ceasar Salad Dressing from Stone Gable.
I set a lovely table. Nothing fancy. A candle and a lovely plate from a friend.
This is the fish I made. Check out Giada de Laurentis' recipe HERE. I didn't have branzino so I used cod fillets which can withstand high heat cooking.
My lovely salad...
Potatoes... very simple... Boil some small red potatoes until fork tender, cool slightly, smash with the palm of your hand and fry in some olive oil, salt and pepper.
Wish my husband could be here to share it with me.
Delicious nonetheless. There is something therapeutic about cooking for yourself.
