All I can say, is Tina took out Haddock from the freezer.
Maybe Buttered Noodles?

Tina cooked the haddock fillet in butter and wine. Good! There was mac and cheese too!

Last couple times I've made cod I've not used a breading and we have enjoyed it....butter & wine sound pretty darn good to me.

I would have preferred cod and I don't like it breaded either.

I took your suggestion, Jimmy.....

Went grocery shopping at WalMart and picked up some frozen Wild Alaskan Cod Filets.....2 ~ 6 oz. individually cryovac'd in a package for just under $9.  There was some other frozen cod filets at half the price but when I checked the package, in teeny, tiny lettering it stated it was a product of China.  No thank you.  I'll pay a bit more and get fish that was caught off the Alaska coast and processed in Washington state.

Seasoned the thawed filets with evoo, s&p and some dry dill weed ....my fresh dill has been attacked by white fly and HE just sprayed it with some soapy water this morning.  I think it just needs to be pulled out and new seeds replanted ~ I don't like buggy herbs. The fish got sealed in foil packs and tossed on the hot grill for about 6 minutes total. For once I didn't overcook it!

Microwaved a large sweet potato for us to split and did a 3 minute microwave cook on the fresh broccoli.  That was supper.

Surgery tomorrow morning.  HE has to report to the hospital at 6 a.m. so I'm thinking of just calling for an Uber Driver to come and pick him up because it sounds really early to me.

Tina picked me up a sub sandwich at Quick Check. Wrong bread roll. GAG trying to swallow the crumbly sub roll. I ate 1/2, and will put the meat and cheese on regular bread tomorrow for my lunch.

Softee doughnuts for Tina's supper later, after the Novocain wears off. She had root canal work done this afternoon. Ouch!

If a root canal is done properly, it shouldn't hurt at all. She should feel better without that root.

Deb, if she's gonna get something or have something that only 1% of the people get......then, she will get it!
Actually, the surrounding teeth are hurting.
Last week, she had work done on the top left, and it hurts on the same side, bottom!

She has to brush with Sensodyne toothpaste for people with sensitive teeth!

Poor Tina! I have been through all that and understand how she feels. One tip I got from my dentist: just before you eat, brush your teeth with no toothpaste so the taste won't ruin your meal. Then after you eat, brush with toothpaste. The first brushing removes a lot of plaque that can eat away at your teeth after eating. The second brushing removes all the rest of the junk. The first brush doesn't have to be long or involved - just a quick swipe around the mouth.

Home from the hospital. Dane's surgery went well. Poor guy ~ never been in the hospital for anything let alone to have his neck sliced open.

But everything came out fine. I saw him right after his surgery and he said he wanted the nurses to leave him alone because he was tired. That was about 9:30 a.m. I went back in at about 11:30 and he said he wasn't tired ~ but his eyes were really heavy and he couldn't keep them open.....but he wasn't tired. LOL

I came home and putzed around with some laundry and then went back at 4:30. He was finally awake and alert.

His throat hurts from the tube they had down it....but he was ready to eat when they brought him a plate of meatloaf, mashed potatoes & broccoli. He wanted salt and I had to laugh.....he's on a cardiac floor. Only thing he got offered was a little packet of something that looked like Mrs. Dash seasoning.

He said everything tasted weird.....might just be from the anesthesia.

He's suppose to be cut loose sometime tomorrow morning. I think he'll be ready when the time comes.

Glad to hear all went well with Danes surgery Beth.
I'm hoping he gets to come home asap. I'm sure he will be in good care when you take care of him at home.

When I was in the hospital, I never finished a meal they brought me.  It was all bland and supposedly "healthy", and I didn't think some of it was very properly cooked.  Even though I ate practically nothing, I wasn't hungry and I didn't lose weight either.

I am glad Dane's surgery went well. His throat may be sore for several days. It always feels like someone shoved a broomstick down your throat.

I don't know what is for dinner. Katie has picked up some kind of bug - temp of 100.3. She only wanted canned pears and a hot toddy yesterday. I am going around the house with the can of Lysol spraying everything she touched. The hardest is to remember to not touch her animals - they are totally cootified with her germs. That is how Joe and I swapped germs, via the cats.

So glad Dane's Surgery went well. I am sure he is itching to get home and get some good flavored food! and some rest. It is impossible to rest while in the hospital. Dane may be groggy, and a bit grouchy when he gets home, because he will be wiped out..

Beth, I know you will be a great nurse to him!! taking good care of him!!

((hugs)) to both of you

They had a brisket point in the store yesterday. I can't remember seeing one there before.  They always have flats which are leaner. I looked at it for a long time trying to decide whether or not to get it.  I already have a brisket flat in brine for corned beef on the 17th and was trying to decide if I wanted to smoke the point. I decided I didn't want to take all day smoking it, especially since the weather isn't likely to be very warm and I'd have to be outside a lot.

Then I saw some short ribs and decided to get those and cut them Korean style for Kalbi. I made Charlie's recipe and they are marinating in the refrigerator now.  Charlie said he'd grill them today.  I should go to the Asian market for some sides this morning before he does that.

Ohhhh, Norm ~ Kalbi short ribs sounds SO GOOD!

**********

Dane's home from the hospital ~ tired but happy to be here and not there! As a precaution I had him take a couple Fibercon tablets and he's having a bowl of spicy chili for his lunch. Any time I was put under the worst side effect was the 'binding' of the gut ~ hopefully between the OTC meds and the beans he'll be fine.

Just to be on the safe side, I'm thinking of having some sauteed cabbage/onions/carrots for supper. I don't know what else, but the cabbage should be great fiber and, in combination with the beans, help his system.

So he finally came up with a suggestion for supper.....what HE wanted. I don't know why I'm even being nice to him. I mean, it was just a 'little' surgery........oh well, I guess he deserves what he wants.

Dinner salad with chicken and hard cooked egg.....made an Asian type dressing.

Have him eat a bunch of dried apricots. His bowels will loosen up. Those pain killers are murder on the gut.

That looks good Beth. Here is our kalbi dinner. Charlie added pear nectar and more sesame oil to the marinade that I made, boiled it and made a baste.  Then he grilled it.  We had it with rice, laver and two kinds of kim chi.

I had a 1/2 ham & cheese and then had a stuffed cabbage. It was different. The stores had no cabbage; so Tina bought Chinese cabbage. The leaves are thinner, and chewy. It as ok though ..... She and her friend from the church went to 4 pm mass, and then they went to Bethlehem, PA, to the Sands Casino to play the slot machines. I hope she wins something.

Of all day's, she picked one cold day. Supposed to go down to 13 degrees tonight. It's 19 right now!

YUM, Norm! Last few times I've made Charlie's kalbi I've added finely microplaned apple. It really seems to add something to the flavor. Love the sweet, salty, spicy (I think I add more spice to mine, too....some sambal oleck, usually). And I do the same thing if I don't have enough of the original marinade to reserve ~ just boil it down and use it as a basting & dipping sauce. Love to spoon some on the rice.

************

Jimmy, I've made cabbage rolls with the Napa (Chinese) cabbage before. I liked it. But I think I probably have more liquid to braise mine than Tina uses ~ mine always came out really tender. The Napa was easier to roll, IMO, because of the shape of the leaves. But I'll bet the flavor was good.

Next time Tina goes to gamble, let me know. I'll send her a quarter to play for me! LOL

(whenever I go to a casino my money gets lost to the 'Bank-of-Rupsy'......Hahahahaha)
