It's been a while since J and I have gotten into any major cooking endeavors and I've had a chance to post while the memory is still fresh. Tonight, as a nice homely activity after a busy weekend and a long Monday, we made fish tacos. Very simple, but brilliant: J made the guacamole (hers is awesome) and a nicely-spiced black bean, onion, garlic, cilantro, roasted red pepper, and leftover rice concoction. In the meantime, I pan-fried some super-fresh and wonderful tilapia. I gave it a light coating of spiced flour, and managed to get it nice and golden but not too greasy. Fecked all that into tortillas with a little salsa (the weakest link--it was from a jar) and some sour cream for me, and we ate ourselves silly.
While I'm catching up on food blogging: last week I made some granola with cashews and dried mango, and we hoovered that up in record time. When I get a chance, this week's batch will involve dried banana and perhaps candied ginger.
In other news, Maddie the Kitty is getting more active and trimmer every day. Today J caught her on top of the fridge--someplace she had never been in this apartment, as far as we know--and I spotted her leaping in the air after a moth.
