A surprise

Yes, I know that having a quiz on a Saturday is a perfectly normal thing around here. Scroll down for the surprise.

You Should Date A Swede!

You're a romantic, albeit an understated and practical one.
It's more about a steady partnership for you, not unrestrained falling
Your Swede will give you the unwavering love you crave
While making up some mean pancakes and meatballs on the side!

Hmmm. I think I know where my next vacation will be.

I had had no intention of posting more food porn today. But then I made dinner last night. And it's all because I stopped at the grocery store following my interview yesterday. (The interview went very well by the way. I should hear back from them on Monday.) I went into the store with a list in hand, as I usually do. But as I passed the fish, I suddenly remembered a recipe that I had come across during this past week. And I just had to try it.

Mahi-mahi with salsa, Basmati rice, and fried plantains.

The mahi-mahi was pan fried with a little olive oil. The salsa is a mixture of Minneola tangelos, avocado, red onion, and jalapeno. With a little lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper. The recipe called for blood oranges but those aren't in season right now. I had picked up the plantains earlier in the week and figured they could go with because the plate had a kind of tropical feel to it. (And yes, the plantains had actually been on my shopping list. Because I was getting crema. And the two go together so well.) Well, it did to me. Now I realize it's probably because I ate a lot of mahi-mahi when I was in Barbados years ago. But it's called dolphinfish there.

Enjoy the weekend. I know I'm going to try to enjoy mine. If all else fails, I have yummy fish leftovers.
