Garbage pick-up day in this lazy little hamlet was Saturday and then they changed it to Thursday just last week. Well, I didn’t realize this until I was sitting at a desk in the post office using internet. “It is today”, said the postmistress.
I was late and didn’t bother. But today I caught glimpse of a half ton truck picking up garbage and thought I may as well put mine out. Where else would they pick up your garbage a day late but in a little prairie village. Life is good.
It must be the Olympics that make me so sappy about my country right now. As I sit here tonight watching the opening ceremonies tears trace down my cheeks. Even with the costume malfunction, they did an amazing job in Vancouver. Welcome, everyone!
Valentines Day, step aside. Love will still be here tomorrow. Here is a tribute to Canada through a nice dinner tonight.I shopped at Flavours of the World when I was in Calgary. Chef Desnoyers has opened this nice little gourmet shop.
Chef Bernard . I had a nice little rainbow trout in the fridge. I sliced a yellow onion to make a bed for the fish in a baking dish. I rubbed the fish, inside and out, with the spice blend. Then I stuffed the fish with sliced onions and lemons and placed sliced lemons on top, too.
I baked it at 475F for 15 minutes.
I served it with a wild rice pilaf and oven roasted acorn squash. I brushed a little of my cedar jelly on the squash toward the end of the baking time. It was a great meal!
Even though rainbow trout is a small fish, it is enough for two servings. I will use my leftover fish in a pasta salad or in a sandwich with a bit of mayonnaise.
