Mackerel in Parchment

. mackerelpotatotomato  

bought two beautiful mackerel (black and white fish to some one) today and decided to cook them
in parchment. such an easy way to cook fish. just make a pouch out of parchment, then toss in
your fish with whatever seasonings you desire. in this case: a quick pesto of almonds, parsley, 
garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, aleppo pepper, and salt. then just sort of fold/roll/crease the edges 
shut and throw the whole thing in the oven until it's done. around here, i like to serve it up with 
some potatoes and tomatoes that have been roasted in a hot oven. 



Summer Breakfast

nothing new, i know. just my favorite summer breakfast: good iced coffee and chilled ripe melon.
if this cantaloupe lasts through the weekend, it'll be a miracle.
