Eye candy, Out in shirtsleeves, Delicious!

1. Shiny red, white and blue garlands of aluminum tinsel are strung around the complete perimeter of a block-long car dealership. It flutters wildly in the wind, changing it from tacky to eye pleasing and creates a party atmosphere at the busy intersection.
2. Temperatures gently climbed into the 60's and I was surprised how warm the sun felt on my skin. I was tempted to take a shovel to the garden... if only I had more time.
3. Our favorite fish recipe for dinner. This comes from Better Homes and Gardens Best-Loved Community Recipes. I used cod fillets since they are more readily available in our stores. Really, really good!

1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c. butter, softened
3 tbsp. mayonnaise
3 tbsp. chopped scallions
1/4 tsp. salt
Dash of Tabasco sauce
2 lbs. sole fillets (or any fresh white fish)
2 tbsp. lemon juice

Combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, scallions, salt and Tabasco. Set aside. Place fish fillets in a single layer on rack of broiling pan. Brush with lemon juice and let sit 10 minutes. Broil fillets 3 to 4 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until almost done. Spread with cheese mixture and broil 2 to 3 minutes longer, until topping turns golden and fish barely begins to flake. Serves 6.


  1. I love your description of the car dealership. :)

  2. I think I have that same cookbook Leonora! That is some tasty fish! It's been unseasonably mild here for this time of year as well, but very windy. xxoo

  3. We've had a little cold-weather respite here, too! But the chill will be back tomorrow.

    The fillet recipe looks wonderful. I'll definitely be using it. Or Lulu will use it! She'd like this recipe. She made dinner again tonight. Fettuccine with carbonara sauce. And delicious. ;)
