For lunch I made fish sandwiches and homemade fries. Kevin was home working and we had a friend from next door over so it was a full house, so fun!
Oven "Fried" Fish Fillets
From: Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything
About 1and a half pounds this fish fillets ( I used cod, I'd thawed too much for last night's dinner so it worked out great)
1 and a half cups plain yogurt
Bread crumbs ( I didn't have any so I used some crushed crackers and cornmeal)
Salt and black pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
-Soak fillet in yogurt while you heat oven to 450. Put the bread crumbs on a plate and season with salt and pepper.
-Once the oven is hot, pull the fish from the yogurt and let it drain a bit. Dredge the fish in the bread crumbs, patting them to make sure they stick. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan, then lay the fillets in the pan. Drizzle with remaining oil.
-Bake near the top of the oven for 8-15 minutes (mine takes at least 15 minutes, but our oven cooks on the slow side).
Serve with toasted bun. Add cheese, tartar sauce and/or ketchup (if you are my children).
This was a first time for these fries. Yum! Why had I never thought to use parchment paper? Our fries always stuck to the foil before. I'll use a little less oil next time but otherwise keep things the same.
Tonight we had potato soup and rolls. I make a half batch of rolls. They are so easy and delicious. The only thing is you do need to be around for most of the afternoon since they rise 3 times. Pretty easy on a snow day! Also, I bake them on a cookie sheet, not touching and they turn out perfectly.
They also discovered how superior whipped cream is to marshmallows.
