Gone Fishin'

I am constantly saying all the foods I would like to include more of in our diet.  When we first got married, I would ask Drew on almost a daily basis if he had eaten any fruit because I felt it was my wifely duty to make sure he got a well-balanced menu. 

Well, to be honest, it kind of is my duty.  Last year some time, I was reading the book of Genesis - you know the part where Eve gives Adam the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil and he takes it and eats it - and it dawned on me that wives are the gatekeepers of the home in regards to what our husbands eat.  So, it is up to me to make sure that Drew has eaten a banana or some broccoli, or fish, or whatever.  Funny that when he eats junk food, that has nothing to do with me - it's all him

Ok, so back to my constant drive to add things to our menu.  I am forever saying I think we need to eat fish at least once a week.  So today we ran over to Costco and got a BIG BAG of Mahi Mahi filets.  We got the plain kind because I didn't want us to get burned out on one particular flavor (they had a blackened Mahi that Drew wanted, but Eve (ahem...I) convinced him otherwise by telling him I could season it for him.  Then we also picked up some Texas Ranch sauce that claimed on the bottle it is great for fish and chicken.  The real reason we got it is the Texas connection.

So we got home and I thawed out a couple of filets and threw Tony Cachare's (Drew loves it so much) on one and the Texas Ranch on the other.  I pan sauteed the fish to great results and added some brown rice and steamed yellow squash.  We split the fish and loved the results.  I am going to have so much fun coming up with different flavor combinations and cooking methods for our gigantic bag of Mahi.  Oh, and I even took a picture that didn't turn out that great. 

Now off to wash some grapes to feed my husband (I don't think he has had any fruit today)!

For some reason I thought we were purchasing Sea Bass and not Mahi Mahi. I'm not sure why anyone would think that you could get 900lbs of Sea Bass for 12.00, but it just sounded good.

Lesson learned - meal was good though. Rubio's(junk food) used to serve Blackened Mahi Mahi burrito's(now Ono) which were tasty enough to forget the added carcinogens I was supposedly ingesting.
