If you enjoy lobster, but your budget does not, you might like what I had for dinner tonight.
It's just boiled cod, my version of poor man's lobster.
Cut the cod in chunks and toss it in some salted boiling water with a shake or two of Old Bay Seasoning. Boil for about 3 minutes or until it's cooked through (it will depend on how big you cut the chunks). That's it. Simple and delicious. You dip it in melted butter. Add some broccoli and a tossed salad to round out the meal. YUM YUM! If dinner isn't a meal without some starch, throw in a Baked Potato and warm roll. I prefer to save those calories in case I'm in the mood to snack later.
Every year I intend to get a pumpkin and carve it out for a vase because I love that look on the autumn table. Most years I never get around to doing it. The one year I did the pumpkin rotted quite quickly. It was hardly worth the effort.
Well today I found a fake pumpkin already cut out to be a vase.
It was the first time I had ever seen one AND it was 80% off!
So here is my $2.59 bargain. I put the flowers in it that are still left from last weekend. I also picked up those sparkley gourds for 80% off.
I do love a good bargain!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
