Get Balsamic Vinegar....Quick You Fool
Honestly, I haven't gotten on the scale in the last few weeks. With all this cooking I've been doing, I must have put on a few pounds.
Granted, I've never made dessert and have tried to keep things healthy, so hopefully the damage is minimal.
I mean, I don't think I eat anymore than normal, it's just been a heavy cooking blog this month, making me think I've been shoveling it down.
BTW, I'm still working on the chili. I think I have 2-3 more lunches to go before it's all done. Yes, it's been chili every lunch this week, yet I'm not tired of it.
Last night was fish.
Talapia is still kind of boring. I've tried dressing it up before with little to no success.
The mustard glaze didn't really work. Torn's tartar sauce glaze was ok, but didn't wow me.
This times it was a garlic / balsamic / butter sauce.
For a serving of two, you needed 1/2 T of butter, one clove of garlic and 1/8 cup of balsamic. For 5 minutes, put the balsamic and garlic over medium heat so it reduces and thickens. Add the butter and whisk it into the sauce.
Drizzle over the fish.
I think 710 liked it better than myself. It was fine, but I had higher expectations, I suppose. I always do. Of course, the fish could have had more seasoning too, so I can't discount that wasn't the issue.
Still, it's fish and vinegar with a little butter. That's healthy, right?
Sure, I had two cookies for dessert, but..........
