Election Day Dinner - 2 days late!


Doesn't this sound like all of us sometimes?  You are running the kids to an activity, you have to pick up a gallon of milk, then you have a quick meeting before running to pick up the kids again.  This was my night on election night.  I had a 5 pm meeting at church when I usually am cooking dinner and got home at 6 pm with the little ones saying they were hungry and my own desire to watch the election results calling for a quick dinner.  Fortunately, one of my stops before church had been to our local fishmonger.  He had fresh Rock Cod in that day and I picked up two fillets as well as his homemade beer batter mix.  While my husband sauteed up some swiss chard, and I microwaved some green beans and put a packaged Caesar salad in a bowl, I was frying up some golden pieces of yumminess.  A quick, delicious dinner, in about 15 minutes, better and healthier than take-out, and then we were all set to settle in and watch the results come in!

Ha- your rushed dinner looks better than mine often do! It helps that you picked up the fresh fish, hey?
Hope you can make those cupcakes sometime. They are a kick!
