Sunday - Happy Father's Day!!!!

Pan fried fish - no recipe needed :)
Harvest grains

Hot tea
English toffee
We're having a celebratory meal tonight! All of us love fish and this is a new method we've tried out. Pan frying sounds like heavy batter and lots of oil, but it doesn't have to be. We dip the fish in skim milk and then dredge in seasoned flour (flour, salt, pepper, and a bit of cayenne). You then heat a thin coat of oil in a large skillet over medium heat and fry the fish until browned and cooked through. A spatter guard is useful, but not very necessary if you keep the heat moderate. The rest is just yummy - a mix of non-traditional grains from TJs and artichokes, one of our favorite vegetables. What a great meal!

Note: We had our nascent Father's Day tradition (two years!) of doughnuts in bed this morning. What a life!

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Super easy
Chopping: Artichoke leaf tips, top and stem
Time: 30 minutes
Make ahead: I always make the artichokes ahead so we can eat them room temp. The rest should be done last minute.

J: "Fried fish meets 'the 5' - AMAZING!"
M: "A fish for all seasons."
