It was supposed to be a variation on Surf & Turf. Surf was good. Turf was a monumental fail.
The days are getting noticeably longer and even a bit drier yet March remains a dicey month; it’s risky to make plans that are “weather permitting.”
Even with a gun to my head and I wouldn’t be able to tell you what I like more: eggs for breakfast or wood-fired pizza for every other meal.
One of my favorite things to do is make dinner in a new place and try to come up with something good whilst dealing with restrictions and idiosyncrasies of a new kitchen/hotplate/cookstove. I’ll dedicate to post to that sometime soon. In the meantime here’s last night’s and this night’s dinners.
The simultaneously depressing and disgusting news spewing from our nation’s capital has bolstered my desire to make dinner a refuge.
Yep, this ongoing deep-freeze, by Oregon standards, inspired another project meal.
Virtually nothing has melted. The side streets are still skating rinks. Driving on anything other than main thoroughfares requires 4-wheel drive. Clearly, another project dinner is called for.
We were supposed to be at Bullards Beach State Park tonight, but 14 inches of snow fell in Portland the other day. Combine the weather with a sick cat requiring daily meds and we canceled the trip. Soup, simple soup, to the rescue.

I used up my Costco cod purchase last night, but still felt a hankering for fish, so I was happy to find portions of halibut waiting for me at Fred Meyer.
