Tonight, Friday, it is tempting to simply order fish’n’chips and collect. Or even better, ask Gran to collect and bring over. But instead I bought this white warehou fillet early this morning, and Justin prepared and cooked it once the babies were all asleep. Of course the veges were prepped so it was not a particularly onerous task for the Friday night of a long weekend. While Justin foiled the fish, I got the rice on. I also found another face-paint pic of Bina, taken last December at one of her kohanga Christmas parties. After her dinner tonight I let her do some painting with food colouring, while I fed the babies. She thoroughly painted her face. A flower, a butterfly, and a brght red nose. I know I should have photographed her, being so careful with her paintbrush.
FISH WITH LEMONS, ZUCHINNI AND BEANS (in foil)
It is about as simple as the title. Lay down the white fish fillet in a piece of foil large enough to wrap all of the ingredients. Squeeze on some lemon juice, and lay on a few globs of butter. Layer up the zuchinni and beans, and finish with a twist of salt and pepper. Justin also added a dribble of sesame oil as a last minute idea. Close up the foil and oven bake on about 180 degC for approx half an hour (since this is a friday my times and temperatures are overly approximate) and then thats it. Serve with rice.
