Dinners w/o 3/23:

During the process of moving, we have been eating out way too much.  Downsizing to a high rise half the size of our house has made me choose cooking items to bring here verses put in storage carefully.  Most are in storage.  The thing I miss so far is not having  BBQ – we used to grill so much.  Now it’s all about searing and roasting – I already set off the fire alarm once!

Sunday –  
Seared halibut – olive, salt/pepper the halibut sear on a cast iron pan at a high temp, flip and then put in the oven until cooked (this is when I set off the fire alarm)
Roasted broccoli and green beans – tossed in olive oil / s & p roasted at 400 until crispy
Roasted finger ling potatoes – tossed in olive oil / s & p roasted at 400 until crispy
