I’m thrilled you all liked the Brendan Brazier interview!!! When Katie, my co-journalist at True/Slant, told me she actually KNEW Brendan and would I like to set up an interview? I nearly fainted. He was so sweet and polite on the phone, too! I told him all about my half marathon in October and he seemed excited for me even though he probably runs, like, a half marathon a day or something crazy like that.
Before the *big* phone call, I snacked on a naner with almond buttah—
Dexter was a happy little clam sitting on my arm—
And then later around 6:30, since I was making a late dinner tonight, I had a little appetizer plate while watching Bride Wars (SO cute and funny!). On my plate I had some hummus and Mary’s Gone Crackers accompanied with a glass of sauvingon blanc
I finally started dinner at 8:00—by this time I was starving! I used another recipe from Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard cookbook, this time for sesame encrusted salmon (I used hogfish). Earlier, I defrosted the hogfish that Ryan caught a few weeks ago. The recipe couldn’t be simpler; you just encrust the fish in a mixture of sesame seeds, paprika, sea salt and panko and then you sear in a little toasted sesame oil on the stove. It came out very nicely and we had broccoli on the side!
Normally I would have had cous cous too but I just really wasn’t feelin’ it tonight and to be honest, I wasn’t all that hungry. Ryan says he drinks his greens in the morning so he’s free to eat whatever he likes for the rest of the day! Hey, to each their own!
Dessert was two Newman’s Own mint “oreos”:
Now for the fun part, guys, together we have raised a total of $6,009.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you even believe it?? I totally cannot. I hope you all enjoy the e-cookbooks! I can’t wait to get cooking out of the dinner one, that’s for sure! Thank you so much for all those that sent in recipes; it would not be in existence without you! You all can keep on buying the cookbook and I also am planning on a really fun auction next month to raise even MORE money! I think you guys will like this one—its been in the works since March! 😉
