Fish, Fish, And More Fish

I’m soon going to be growing fins and gills here!  

Weird side note – I have a friend who is afraid of fish. Like, freaks out afraid of fish. She can’t watch Finding Nemo. We once got into an elevator, and it had a fish tank in it. It was not a fun elevator ride!

Today was a usual lazy Saturday. It started with an excellent sleep in, then breakfast. I warn you though, this oatmeal turned out a really bizarre colour.

Mom thought it looked like mashed up kidney beans. But rest assured, there were no beans in this oatmeal!

  • 1/2 cup oats, milk, water
  • 3 dried figs, chopped
  • frozen raspberries
  • splash of vanilla
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter, swirled in

Check out that swirl!

A glass of the Happy Planet Mango Peach Party, of course.

It might look a little weird, but it tasted good.

I ended up getting suckered into watching figure skating on tv, then finally showered up and had some lunch. It was all about the leftovers.

Half a piece of halibut, with tartar sauce.

Plus the rest of the fries, with ketchup.

It reheated & crisped up perfectly in the oven.

I decided to head on down to the mall this afternoon, which really, wasn’t the best idea. It was a rainy, cold day out. Where do you think everyone in the city is going to be? At the mall. I did have some errands to run though – I took in a pair of jeans to get them hemmed so I can actually wear them, made an appointment to get my hair did (Wednesday!), looked around to see if any store I would consider working at was hiring (none), browsed some books, dvd’s, shoes, makeup (hello new Sephora at the mall). And I got gas for my car, which should last me til Christmas, since I hardly drive the thing anymore. So although I left empty handed, I got some stuff done. But let’s be honest – the mall is way more fun when you actually have money to spend!

I got home, chilled with the family, then helped my mom out making dinner. She opened a bottle of wine, so I had a small glass.

Mom was making a family favourite – salmon loaf. I know, I know. It sounds really weird, maybe even disgusting, but I swear, salmon loaf trumps meatloaf any day!

Made with only the finest sockeye salmon, of course 🙂

One of my dishes – orzo pasta with olive oil, garlic, parmesan, fresh parsley, black pepper. This was in place of the rice we planned, but apparently didn’t have in the cupboard.

And some greenery – steamed broccoli & cauliflower, and a caesar salad (also my creation).

There’s just all sorts of good going on on this plate!

After dinner, I found myself over at the cousin’s place to watch a movie (The Taking Of Pelham 123), where I found myself served with a slice of chocolate cream pie. Yum! It wasn’t a late night this time, and I was home by 11:30. Which was when I planned on getting this post up…until Sienna broke a plant in the living room. Bad kitty! Looks like a trip to Ikea is in order for more plant pots.

Now it is way past my bedtime, so I shall bid you adieu. Night!

    Chocolate cream pie? Delicious!! I get skeeved out by fish – there’s a pic of me when I was maybe 10 years old, holding a fish I caught, wearing medical gloves and making the most disgusted face. Haha!

    I wish I liked salmon – it looks so good! But I would eat the fried fish any day of the week! 😀

    care to share you momma’s salmon loaf recipe ?

    Raspberries sure do funny things to oats!

    I would have to agree that the mall is def more fun when you have $$ to spend. Going without cash is kinda like being the DD on a Saturday night at the bar….BORING! 😉

    Salmon loaf doesn’t sound gross at all. I’d make it….if I knew how! LOL

    I was really afraid you were going to say you put beans in that oatmeal at first. I don’t know if I could get over that one!

    Malls = the craps without money. I don’t like window shopping. If I’m shopping then I want to own new stuff!

    I hardly ever even drink wine but for some reason your glass now really makes me want some. Hmmmm. I kind of wish I had a bottle right now haha
