First of all, I can’t stand to be wasteful with food. People who order three courses and 5 sides and only eat two bites of each drive me absolutely crazy. Ok, rant over.
Last night I roasted two big halibut filets with sweet potatoes, apples, and onions for myself, my stepmom, and my dad. We felt like we ate a lot, but there was still about 1/3 of the fish left. After spending that much and having so much untouched, there was no way I wasn’t hitting up that fish for a second round. Tonight I lightly heated up the leftovers, steamed some broccolini and mushrooms with a garlic and fresh herb water, and dumped it all into simmering chicken broth for 15 minutes. Simply delicious.
My girfriends think I’m a culinary genious for adding herbs and garlic to the water I use to steam veggies. They go nuts when I add a splash of seasme oil to veggies or dill to a salad. Tonight when I dumped it all into broth, they were singing my praises for feeding them such a healthy meal. And I thought I was being lazy with my one-pot wonders and cheap with the little herbal additions. As long as they’re happy, I’m happy.
Actually I was really happy when Kim busted out the Coconut creme pie she picked up. So long healthy, hello heaven!Tweet this!
