I made dinner again tonight (second time this week!). Tuesday night Katrina and I made chili, which might just be the easiest thing ever. Then tonight I had fish, rice and veggies. It was super easy and super good. My secret? Frozen fish and veggies. Although I would love one day soon to learn to cook these multicolored beans from fresh produce, the frozen variety will have to work for now.
While I have finally gotten comfortable with the oven, I still find myself calling mom asking her for advice. Tonight the question was whether a cookie sheet would suffice for the fish, as I was without the shallow baking pan cited in the directions. But despite this minor substitution, everything finished cooking at the same time (a skill I am far from mastering). I am also convinced that some cooking magic still resides in my grandma's pots and pans. She was one of the best cooks and I like to think that I inherited a bit of that talent (or maybe the pots are just lucky).
An added bonus to help make today fabulous - I won breakfast at work tomorrow for having the highest referral rate among the newbies! Now, take a look at tonight's dinner and try not to be jealous.
