I'm so proud of myself.
Last night I made my version of fish 'n chips. I did Panko (Japanese breading) on some Alaskan Cod with a little garlic, salt, and pepper then seared it in a little olive oil. Then I sliced up a sweet potato into "fries" and coated them with a little salt, pepper, and olive oil and then broiled them on a baking sheet in the oven. Add to that some steamed broccoli and you've got yourself a DELICIOUS meal!
I told 3ft we were having crunchy fish and fries. He took one look at the fries and then looked at me like I was crazy.
"French Fries are yellow!"
A bolt of inspiration hit me (I swear my hair sizzled). "Those aren't french fries they're Halloween fries. They're orange because it's October."
"Oh. my. gosh. That's so cool." And he gobbled them all up and had a second helping.
Now you know, if I would've called them sweet potato fries, he'd have turned up his nose and not wanted them. The same kid who eats Nutella with marshmallows and pepperoni wouldn't have even tried them. Instead, by calling them something special he was all over them. He ate all his fish, fries, and broccoli. I was so proud.
However, Mr. Grumpybutt did NOT care that I called them Halloween fries. He doesn't like sweet potato at all. I thought they were delicious.
I thought the whole dinner was awesome and I have a couple cod fillets left over to have fish sandwiches which I also super love. I made some homemade cocktail sauce to have with the fish -- I don't like tartar sauce at all. I was glad I'd left the food on the counter and made my plate there and then took it to the table because I'd have eaten more, it was so good, if it had been right there in front of me.
Another recipe for the cookbook!
