Blackened Fish with Pico de Gallo

Part of being on a budget means not going out to eat. I have acknowledged the fact and have focused on cooking. So why no cooking posts? Mostly because I completely forgot that I had a camera to take the pictures with since I used to do it with my iPhone which I no longer have. So after  a beautiful and meditative walk with my wife in a Lancaster park yesterday, I decided to take some great food pictures. What better recipe to start with than my blackened cod (though today we substituted for another white fish).

Kloster’s

First of all I’d like to apologize for disappearing like that but if you follow me on Facebook you’ve probably seen some mention of recent changes and a big announcement.

Spanish Tortilla

It’s a great to be back in the groove of cooking again! For supper, and possibly straining the bounds of our diet, I decided to make a Spanish tortilla (a Spanish style omelette). We really like it because it’s tasty, satisfying, quick and easy to make and it just tastes so good. Don’t sweat, don’t fret, I’m here to guide you step by step. First peel a russet potato (that’s the baking kind) and cut it into cubes. Pour about 2 cm of olive oil and fry the potatoes. You’ll know they’re ready when the turn a delicious golden brown.
