So, the fresh fish from the market was delicious. I decided to get all fancy pants up in this piece and do somethin’ crazy with it…Well, actually it was Matt who got the idea to cook the fish a new way other than the standard olive oil, garlic, with salt and pepper, and he let me know this when I got home from the gym on Saturday. I walked in the door and he had a recipe already selected and printed out from the Food Network, and me, not being a fan of following directions/recipes thought to myself, “Dang it.” I know, I know, isn’t it dumb that I hate following directions/recipes? I really do think it’s a huge character flaw, but whatev. I tell myself this issue is solely because I have a need to be creative without restriction, but maybe it has more to do with some kind of underlying issue with authority and/or being told what to do? Wow, I didn’t mean to get all serious up in your biz…So, anyway…The mahi-mahi on Saturday night was phenom, and the snapper from tonight was double phenom…So hooray.
Speaking of Giada, does anyone ever notice how completely animated she is about EVERYTHING at ALL times on her show?! Don’t be misled by this statement, I heart Giada as much as the next one, but I’m just sayin’ I find her a wee bit nutty (in a good way). P.S. I enjoy imitating her, especially while I’m cooking her recipes. The only difference is that I don’t wear low-cut shirts that show off my bubbies while doing so.
So, the fish was a hit, I learned to be patient with recipes, and all is right with the world.
