What can you make in a big fat hurry……..fish! Cast Iron Cod Potatoes and Onions.


In past posts I have mentioned that I had a ton of recipes that I thought were lost forever…….then my friend Jeanne, recovered them….she is awesome!!! This recipe is one of them.

I have had a hankering for fish lately ………. on the last grocery shopping trip I picked some up. Just some frozen fillets….nothing fancy. If the store had fresh I would have bought them but they didn’t. Anyway frozen lasts for a long time right?

Recently we seem to purchase food, and then ……stuff happens……a week later I see the (fill in the blank) that I bought, and ponder… how long it has been in my frig???? My motto…..when in doubt, throw it out!!! We sometimes throw out a lot of food…..not good!

Rosemary Lemon Chicken with Arugula Cannellini Bean Salad

Chicken White Bean Salad

I am finding out that in the blogging world, things can and do go awry…….I guess I should have know that it would not always be smooth sailing. I use a photo editing program that is currently experiencing difficulty. So this post will not have my usual formatting. As soon as my editing program is back to normal I will replace the photos to the type I usually have.


So, that being said ………..this weeks Date Night Dinner is of a lighter fare. We are still trying to eat “better”. I am once again using beans, but this time in a salad. In one of my previous jobs we had a lemon rosemary chicken marinade that we used for our chicken and I always  thought it made the chicken juicy and flavorful. So since I could not for the life of me remember the recipe, I made up my own. It turned out very good. I used some of the same flavors for the salad and viola`……..a match made in heaven.

Maybe I am thinking of spring and summer and this will be a perfect dinner to eat alfresco. In better weather ……..the day I made this was one of the many days that it snowed this past month……..you could easily grill the chicken for your alfresco dining pleasure!
