It’s a bazillion degrees outside with humidity to match.  Going outside to grill would mean leaving the comfort of the air conditioning.  Baked cod seemed a much wiser choice tonight than grilled.

Hey…  I’m not a native.  I don’t like drinking my air.

But native or not, dinner needs to get on the table.  Sadly, I’m not one of those people who can’t eat when it gets too hot.  I can always eat.  Always.  Feed a cold, feed a fever.  Always.

Dinner tonight was really, really simple… Baked cod, roasted cauliflower, and cheesy rice.

The rice took the longest to cook.  1/2 cup of rice in 1 1/2 cups water, with a drizzle of butter and a half-teaspoon of Italian seasoning.  When it was done, I stirred in about a cup of finely-grated parmesan cheese.

The cauliflower was drizzled with olive oil and coated with crumbs and asiago cheese.  Baked at 375° for 30 minutes.

The cod was the quickest.  I drizzled some butter on top and coated the top with crushed croutons.  Into the 375° oven for 10 minutes.


I’ll probably make it out to the grill again, tomorrow.  Although I have had sloppy joe’s on my mind for a while…
