I bought sushi. Enough for normal people for dinner, but we'll have it as an appetizer.

Then cioppino.

Duck confit on a brioche bun and curried frites. Toasted pecan old-fashioned to start and cappuccino to follow.

Oh and I'm having roasted salmon with a green sauce, roasted cauliflower and sautéed chard with garlic and lemon. I'll try to remember to post a pic.

What kind of green sauce? I like the sound of your menu.

It's a sauce I made for halloumi but works nicely with fish. It's cilantro, capers, garlic, mustard, olive oil and lemon. It was yummy but I sautéed the chard in cast iron which I find tent to make things a bit grey. #notmyfault

I also had salmon. Mine had a salt/pepper/mustard coat and I had it with broccoli and onion with oyster sauce.

Ceviche with plantain chips, roasted chicken, veggies,salad and of course, rice and beans. Semana Santa is underway and was over for dinner at a Tico family gathering.
Pretty tough for me to keep up with local Spanish sayings, slang, and listening intently to try to understand everything. It's really heartwarming for me to be invited into their home for a family get together, even if that seems a bit sappy to say.

I totally get what you mean, Led.

Sounds like a really good dinner, too. Especially the ceviche. Mmmmm, I love ceviche.

Nothing. I decided to go with intermittent fasting as an effort to lose a few kg. So I will eat breakfast and lunch on work days and stop eating after about 3 PM.

At home I'll eat between 11 and 7.

It remains to be seen whether my lack of willpower will see me classifying soup as "clear fluids" that don't count as food.

Thanks. I did all the prep, sauces, etc, but can't take credit for the grilling. I have a friend that's very talented behind the grill. The steaks were perfect.

Not for dinner but besides making yogurt this morning I was busy baking. I made a lemon pound cake that, while it is moist, I would still only say it is ‘ok’. I also made a banana bran breakfast loaf that is very good.

Romaine ? Living dangerously are you ?

I had a large lunch (tenderloin sandwiches ala Millie's) and will just be having a chilled chef's salad for dinner. Iceberg lettuce with a deep well of cottage cheese in the middle, Got some nice sweet cherry tomatoes, to complement the onions and chopped cucumber, shredded cheese, garlic croutons, and bacon bits, with lots raspberry vinaigrette. Yummy nummy . . .

whole grilled red snapper and black bean and corn salsa. Slice avocado for garnish. I thought about rice or corn tortillas but decided this was enough.
