When we got home with our fish I realized I was going to have to cook it.
Fish is one of those things I have no idea how to cook.
I make salmon the same way every time. And that’s generally the only fish we eat in this house.
I read about 45659408 recipes for trout before I made dinner out of our catch.
It was a little garlic, a little wine, a little butter, a little lemon juice.
And honestly, it was fantastic.
Most recipes called for chopped onion, but we were out, so I used onion powder.
(Wanna know a secret? Since my husband hates onions I sometimes use onion powder in our dinners. If he can’t see it, he doesn’t know it’s there. Flavor obviously isn’t as good, but it’s better than nothing)
The cat was very curious about this. Our cat loveeees tuna-when I open a can I pour out the water for her to eat. But I’ve realized that since I put pickles with my tuna when she smells pickles she thinks she’s getting a snack
I made a turkey sandwich with pickles last week and poor little bear was pacing the kitchen trying to find the tuna.
After dinner I was craving dessert.
A normal person would go get something.
But I wanted a WARM dessert. It HAD to be warm.
I walked down the street and found a blackberry bush.
Totally normal, right?
Blackberries are a weed here. Which means there’s free fruit all over the place. God wants Oregonians to have pie.
Or, in the case of this night, crisp. Which is easier and faster than pie.
Added some sugar, added some cornstarch, and made the crumb topping.
I love crisps because this sucker took under an hour, including berry picking. Almost instant gratification.
Do you cook fish? I always feel like we ought to eat more in our house than we do. But I have no clue what to do with it.
What’s an easy dessert you love? I’ve totally been making crisps since college. Or teddy bear toast (toast with butter, sugar, and cinnamon), not going to lie.
