Two weeks ago, things reached a new level of low when my good friend, cartoonist Chris Juneau, asked, “Do you EVER cook anymore or do you eat out every night?” While that felt a tad unjust (Chris’ query was in reply to my dinner invitation! At a restaurant where we’d won a gift certificate at Chris’ charity fundraiser!!), in the end, she was right. I’d pretty much stopped cooking (and gained weight, but that’s another story).
And with that single snarky comment, I’d been shamed right back into the kitchen.
That week, I made my usual favorites: Baked Arctic Char with Baked Sweet Potatoes (recipes on Going Lo-Co Recipe page) and Mustard Roasted Fish (see my Mmm Mmm Mustard Roasted Fish post for info and recipe).
