LA CUCINA VIGNETO ....... PESCADO MOJO DE AJO

I keep blackboards in each of our kitchens. One is for inspiration - recipes that I want to try and on another the menu for the week. Our youngest daughter calls "What should I cook for dinner Mom? I need some ideas. What's on the chalkboard?" She often calls for wine recommendations as well. Our son does the same. "What's on the chalkboard?" Not that he has any intention of cooking any of these sometimes elaborate meals. Seems to be comforting to him just to hear the weeks menu. After having been away for a month this is the chalkboard that I have come back to............................................
Oh my................................. Le husband can clearly not be left alone! Whole Foods had fresh red snapper, a favorite of Jim's. I baked it with lemons, thyme, butter and garlic...........................................................................................

  3. Oh me too I love this post.

    Your posts are Golden~

    I have the little pig blackboard and am always thinking of a place for a larger one:)Not a pig.. a blackboard~ It looks perfect at your Vineyard Haven Home~

    The fish..is luminous on that first pic..is it simply resting on foil? Beau!And Whole Foods never got a shot of their tart like that!

    You have such a pretty life~I adore peeking.
