Zucchini.

As a kid I HATED it.  I don’t know if I ever even tried it, but you couldn’t get me to go near that or any other kind of squash, which was weird because I was generally not a picky eater.  Now one of my favorite foods.

Some days Littledude LOVES it.  Others, well lets say that one of these days I need to take a photo of what the floor looks like post-dinner when he is in a “no food mood”.

This is a quick and easy little recipe that my family really loves when I make, and when I say simple, I mean simple. I have a very specific way I do it, but you can get creative with spices and flavorings….

Red Chard and Beans

Last Night’s Dinner

Pistachio Crusted Flounder, Red Burmese Rice and Sautéed Red Chard with Cannelini Beans.

First admission.  I didn’t make the fish.  I COOKED the fish, and perfectly well I might add <pat self on back> but the fish was pre-crusted and NOT Gluten Free.  I got it from The Fresh Market when I did a huge “protein shop” at the butcher last week.  I pick a bunch of things, order 4 of each as it’s normally Nonna, Mama Sis, myself then the munchkins split one, and have the butcher wrap it all to freeze. Wrapped, labeled and perfectly portioned – it SO speaks to the inner OCD freak in me.  I’m a 20 plus minute customer but my butcher John is the BOMB and I walk out so happy.  Completely broke but happy and with enough quality meat and fish for a few weeks….
