Last night began the process of losing the weight that I had gained by eating too much and too regularly on our recent cruise. Whereas a normal dinner would be a main and salad on the Dawn we regularly ate four, albeit small, courses but their food options were so good we could not turn them down. Throw in a decent breakfast and a pizza lunch followed by afternoon tea and it is easy to see from where the weight came. Oh well, I am glad that I like fish!
Diane and I are preparing separate meals on my every other day because she looses weight differently than I do. Diane swears by the efficacy of the Mediterranean Diet while I am happy to eat baked fish and salad multiple times per week; it works for me!
Last night I prepared Bernard’s tried and true French recipe involving a piece of fish on a bed of sliced mushrooms baked in Vegeta stock. I boil the water for the stock before mixing it and pouring it into a small baking dish, putting it into a preheated 180 degree oven for about 20 minutes depending on the type of fish and its thickness. Last night I used one fillet from a Kalis prepacked fresh fish which was Saddlefish Snapper. I prefer other varieties but you must buy what is available.
I made us a salad with all the goodies left out: no olives, no croutons, no nuts so it was pretty dull.
Our beverage of choice was lemon flavoured water.
