Back to It

Cooking

Well, my body is back to normal, but I have a lovely runny nose…I’ll take it! T’was another productive day at work. It looks like there might only be one more big wave of testing referrals before the end of the school year. Yippeeee.

I headed back to the gym today and got back in the kitchen! I went to a 5 o’clock spinning class, and although I opted to just go through the motions and not really push myself, I was still dripping by the end. I’ve been dreaming of the sauna all week and finally felt the moment was right to go after my workout. I think I lived in the desert in my past life, because it was just heavenly.

For dinner, I put some red potato wedges in the sauna and let them do their thing. They came out crispy on the outside and pillow-y on the inside. I need to buy these more often because they were much easier and better than using a regular potato to make fries.

The fish, on the other hand, didn’t turn out so perfectly. I finally picked up some panko breadcrumbs, and I was very disappointed in them. I brushed cod filets with mustard and then dipped them in a mixture of lemon zest, parsley, salt, and breadcrumbs.

I mean, overall, the fish was pretty good, but just a little bland because I didn’t season it very well. Regardless, I do think I prefer my pre-panko method of encrusting things in the crumbs of tortillas chips better than this stuff. I’ve got a whole bag of it now, so I’ll probably try and make some of Caitlin’s baked pickles.

    Her baked pickles were fantastic, I made them two days in a row b/c I loved them so much.

    Don’t give up on Panko breadcrumbs! I’m not crazy about all things breaded, but these are really good. I suggest a second attempt.

    I’m with you on past lives in the desert. I don’t know how you survive Boston winters 🙂
