Take a Chowder!!

Sunday, March 20, 2016

I often add fish to my lunch salads: salmon, tuna, but most frequently shrimp.

But for some reason seldom make a fish supper soup.

Did this morning and the taster bowl tells me it's quite delish!

Some broth, a pound of frozen cod, one of those bags of "seafood medley" (frozen: octopus and squid and mussels and shrimp . . . ) and another bag of tiny frozen scallops. Celery and carrots. Most of a fresh cauliflower. Lots of sliced brown mushrooms. Diced canned tomatoes. Old Bay seasoning plus a whole whack of fresh chopped dill. Some red chili flakes for a bit more zip. And Meyer lemon zest plus juice.

Planning to treat myself to a new flowering plant for my office too: I've had an orchid for the past few months but it's finished blooming and I'm never successful in getting them to bloom again . . . will give that one to one of my staff who's a real plant whisperer and see what I can find at the flower shop.

OK, going to be a busy week but I'll remember that recess helps!!

    Sounds like a lovely bouillabaisse!!!

    With the orchid, the trick is that they don't like to have "wet feet." Don't let the bottom of the pot and the roots sit in water. Orchids prefer to dry out between watering. I usually let them sit on a plate of gravel, so the water can drain fully, but the moisture can evaporate and create a humid micro-environment. They also like sun, though maybe not direct afternoon sun, it can burn the leaves. (Well, in St. Thomas I just put them in the shade on the porch.)

    Wow, that really is a seafood soup! I am afraid I don't get past salmon, tuna or some white flesh fish. Not a fan of it.
    Glad you enjoyed the result!

    Too bad you live so far away or I'd be over for that soup. :)
    Gotta love recess.

    My favorite office plant was my African Violet. At one point I had a pineapple plant given to me for my birthday and it became a topic of conversation until the pineapple was ready to be eaten. I cut the top off and attempted to start the next one but it didn't take.

    It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that ZING! :-)

    Sounds most yummy!

    Outside of my usual can of tuna on my lunch salad I rarely bother with seafood at home and save it for those rare dinners out...that way I can enjoy it more. I've also taken to avoiding shrimp, since they're bottom-feeders and snarf up all the toxic stuff we've dumped that settles to the bottom of our oceans.

    Enjoy your soup! I am thinking of getting an African violet for my office. I have 2 peace plants that consistently bloom despite my neglect. I will have to be more attentive if I get a violet.
