Dinner, 09/10/2012

For those who have been following Facebook, you know that we have been experimenting with some old issues from Everyday Food magazine allowing us to make some food that is healthier and more home made than we had been previously cooking (or buying and eating).  Basically, they provide a five day menu complete with shopping list. All you have to do is buy it and make it.  Most meals take from 15 to 45 minutes to prepare.  Dealing with chemotherapy and work, it seemed like a way for us to get better food and eliminate some work.  Week one is in the books already (if you request it, I have recipes and pictures I can repost to the blog here).

Now, we are on to week two.

Today's meal is Prosciutto-wrapped Cod with Lemony Spinach

Here is the recipe.

We had some line caught halibut from Alaska caught by a friend, so we replaced the cod with that.  Thanks to repeated forced incidents with canned spinach as a child, I was not a big fan of cooked spinach, but the lemon seasoning really helped with that here.  The saltiness of the prosciutto soaked into the fish to enhance the flavor.  This was not my favorite of the series, but it was enjoyable.  I doubt the salt and fat content of the prosciutto puts this far into the healthy category, but hey, it is better than pizza.

Not on my menu these days but looks and sounds delicious. I do eat and enjoy lots of spinach, however.

PB - The lemony spinach is a nice.tasty dish all on its own. Our goal is to get where you are now, but Rome wasn't built in a day so it may take us a while.
