Cod, Baked with Tomatoes & Capers; weeds

Even though mon mari professes to hate fish we still have it at least once every week.

As long as it doesn’t have bones he’s happy…. sort of.

He’s always happy when he can cook it on the barbecue in the summer.

In the winter, cooking it in the kitchen requires more creativity.

Thankfully, he loves capers almost as much as grilling.

I add capers – he’s happy.

Or, at least, not terribly unhappy.

Baked Cod with Capers, Tomatoes

Today I have attempted to ignore social media, the news and internet searches.

I failed.

But I did manage to get out into the sunshine for a bit. It was a beautiful day…. the nicest we’ve had since last fall.

We’ve had an unusually mild winter. Windy, rainy and gray but no hard frosts. That translates into monstrous weeds in my potager.

Usually mon mari just roto-tills everything a few times and I pick out the bits of weeds that survived or are just too big to hoe in. This year the weeds were just too big and nasty. I pulled about 8 big buckets of weeds.

I hate weeding but it was nice being out in the warm sunshine.

Plus I stuffed the weeds down the rabbit holes so I got to work off a bit of stress as well.

  1. So far there aren’t any weeds to speak of in my garden yet. However, I’m sitting in front of a roaring fire on the hearth right now because the ‘warm’ day we were supposed to have never materialize.

    I’ve made almost the exact dish but no olives! Great minds 😉
