Purple Fish

Yesterday on my most favorite day of rest, I went about cleaning and watching the Food Network for tips, turkey tips really, but I will get to that later. I rested yesterday, Sundays are good for that. My kitchen got a thorough scrubbing down, and after all that I thought, I should cook in my sparkly clean kitchen. I had Talapia that needed to be eaten and a pretty little summer squash that i needed to cook up. And in the door of my fridge, wedged between tomato paste and horseradish was a sad looking half of an onion that was just begging to be eaten. It's as if it was saying, "Pick Me, Pick Me!"... So in the saute pan went the onions in some olive oil and then some garlic, because when don't i cook with garlic! Then went the sunshine yellow summer squash. I sauteed them with the onions and garlic, salt & pepper & parsley & my can't live without red pepper flakes. I removed the squash when they were done. And to get the little bits off the bottom, i added some red wine, just a little drizzle, and a bit of butter. I placed the talapia fillets into the pan and the wine turned my fish purple! It was a strange site to behold and i wish I would've taken a picture. I've never eaten purple fish, and although they looked a little scary, they tasted wonderful. I served them up on top of the yellow squash... and then it was a Vikings meal on my plate! Too bad the Vikings SUCK! But don't get me started...


This week is jammed packed every night from Monday until Sunday, and then I will rest.
Wednesday Kelly and I will be having our Thanksgiving Dinner Super Power Summit. I had the brilliant idea a few weeks ago to host Thanksgiving. And then Kelly volunteered her home to accommodate the dysFUNction. So together we will be preparing the feasts of all thanksgiving feasts, sans green bean casserole! Which speaking of GBC, i was just telling my mom the other day, "Mom, we are making a healthy yet deliciously simple gourmet meal, with NO green bean casserole." That night, my mom said to my dad, "Sabrina and Kelly are doing Thanksgiving." My dad said "I don't care where we go, I just want some green bean casserole." OH PUKE DAD! I think we will be making him his own portion in a ramekin.

Wednesday night, the recipes will be chosen and the meal will be planned. The big question is the turkey. Neither kelly or I have ever made a turkey. But I have been reading up on it, and getting lots of tips... lots and lots of tips. Turkey will be my middle name when I am through with this holiday!

Did you know that on the original Charlie's Angels there was a Sabrina and a Kelly? Kate Jackson was Sabrina and Jaclyn Smith was Kelly. Farrah Fawcett was Jill, and since we have no Jill, Kyle can be her. I always thought Kyle would make a good Farah Fawcett... hmmmm...

I watched Martha Stewart make a turkey yesterday on her show and all I could think was, "I never want to do that." I'll love hearing how it goes...
Maybe you guys could karate chop the turkey like good Charlie's Angels should.
