It finally feels like summer here in San Diego. Why? The weather has turned warm. Very, very warm. So warm that people are complaining and doing what they can to stay cool. Now this is summer.
This change in weather has also changed what I feel like cooking — and eating. I’m going to hold off on my long slow-cook day on Wednesday and stick with some quick meals for a while.
I have a new meal report. We tried Halibut with Mango Salsa and while I liked it, my husband thought it was just okay. My three-year daughter really enjoyed the salsa which I think was the reason she took a couple of bites of fish.
I think fruit salsas are not only great for kids but perfect this time of year. When I asked my daughter what she wants on the menu this week she actually said fish (of course her first vote was for cupcakes but I informed her that’s not a dinner choice).
Could she be turning into a fish eater? Only time will tell.
This week I’m trying another recipe from Food on the Table’s No Whine Wednesday because it looks right up my alley — it contains beans and it’s super easy. I’m also going to try this sloppy Joe recipe I got from the Six O’Clock Scramble Newsletter which is made with lean meat and veggies. Other than that it’s old standbys.
