Do you remember when you were a kid and you got a fast food burger, the anticipation and excitement of unwrapping the paper around it? At least for me, fast food burgers were a rare treat, and I always loved unwrapping the paper around the sandwich. Similar to how I felt tonight as I “unwrapped” my dinner. Though I have come a long way in terms of dinner tastes, I still love the surprise of “what’s inside.”
Halibut with Tomatoes and Olives serves 2
- 2 – 6 oz Halibut fillets (or substitute any firm white fish)
- 1/2 zucchini, cut into match stick piece
- 6-8 grape tomatoes, halved
- 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
- 6 kalamata olives, sliced
- 1/4 dry white wine
- fresh thyme, sliced tomato and salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375. Cut 2 large rectangles of parchment paper and fold in half. On one half of the fold, lay half of the cut up zucchini and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Lay 1 piece of fish over each mound of vegetables and salt and pepper the fish. Top the fish with both kinds of tomatoes and sliced olives. Pour 2 Tbsp of wine on top and add 2 sprigs of fresh thyme. Start on one end and roll the parchment paper to seal your packets. Bake packets 12 –15 minutes, or until their is a “poof” in your packet.
Rice Krispie treats with candy corn. Swoons <3
(While I may have “graduated” in my entree choices, I still go back to being a kid at heart in my love for simple Rice Krispie treats.)
Let’s just say that way to much of this pan of treats is gone for only 2 people eating them. I should know better than to make a whole pan when I’m PMSing.
