He liked it!

Good golly, he liked it!

I made him flounder and he really liked it a lot. I kept it simple. Baked flounder filets encrusted with cornmeal and a dash of Parmesan cheese. For a side I had steamed asparagus, which I then sautéed for about a minute, in garlic, shallots, EVOO and a dash of salt and pepper. And I paired it all up with a nice salad with red. Yes, Red. I had thin slices of red onion, peppers, apples, and the tastiest grape tomatoes I have ever devoured. This was topped with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. See, red.

But yes, he loved it all and ate it ALL. He was still kind of, ‘eh’ about the salad, since I think he wasn’t expecting it to be sweet, but he actually didn’t complain or make a face about the fish. I knew he’d love the asparagus (the first thing he reached for) because he does love the stuff and I used a generous amount of garlic and shallots. It was kind of my, truce dish. If he didn’t like anything else, I at least knew he’d love that one.

Dear lord. I’ve just realized I’m raising an adult. Minus throwing food, getting it all over his hair and clothes and drooling all over himself, Aaron’s like a giant, fussy child!

Lord… ah well. So, yes, once again, I felt pretty smug. The streak continues. Tonight, I hope to do it again with chicken. I just have to figure out what I’m going to do with it.
