Another week has zoomed on by but this time around we have a modicum of freedom, albeit the Rules are not that clear, Can we? Can’t-we? Who knows! We shall carry on as before, parfum extraordinaire, Eau de Disinfectant, the masks the shoes, the groceries, the packets, I think I will remember the smell for a long time to come! But at least for us the golf course is open, so it is at least some distraction. My kids say for us ‘ Rien ne change!’ Well it does, of course, the trips, all cancelled, and no dining out, but Hey Ho, Onwards and Upwards!
Sandwiched between Sunday cocktails and Sunday Story Time, Dinner takes third place, but that too is fine, after all, where am I going, nowhere!
Today it is fish ( and my neighbour said, fish? You eat a lot of fish , we eat chicken !) well, yes again it is fish, and this time round it is Halibut, as when I ordered from Ish Fish, I though I would try some. Actually I have never cooked Halibut previously, but there is no reason why it should not be as easy as any other fish.
I’m going to pan fry it and serve it with a a Puttanesca dressing. Puttan, apparently means Tart or Whore, but Puttanesca can also mean a mix of Peppers, capers etc , but calling it Tarts Sauce is amusing !
