Off to NYC!

Hi Everyone! Well, we are off to NYC! BS has business in the Big Apple this week so baby Jack and I thought we'd join him up there and then spend the little man's 1st birthday there! We are super excited to spend the week with friends and family. Have a great week/weekend and we will catch up next week!

Scenes From the Weekend

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Friday we drove to Austin (BS's boss was being honored at the Distinguished Alumnus Awards ceremony- so was Matthew McConaughey I might add!) so Jack and I decided to tag along! We stayed at a beautiful boutique hotel called Hotel Ella. A perfect hotel for a romantic weekend getaway...not so much with a very active almost 1 yr old in tow! Below are a few pics from the weekend!

Hey Everyone! So the other day I was at the fish counter at Whole Foods and I noticed a fish that I had never seen before. It's called "Opa" or Moonfish. I asked the fish monger what it tastes like and he said a cross between swordfish and tuna. So I thought I'd give it a try! Because this fish is steak-like, I decided to cook it like a steak. I have to say, this fish was super yummy but most fish markets don't carry Opa on a regular basis. Below is what I did:
Salt, Pepper & Olive Oil

Sear fish on each side for 3 minutes

1 large shallot, 1 lemon & 1 cup of white wine

Remove fish and add 1 tablespoon of butter, shallots, lemon & wine and scrape off brown bits
(about 5 minutes)

Put fish in baking dish and pour liquid around the fish

Add dill & lemon slices on top of fish

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes depending on thickness and serve with rice & asparagus
