Fish and shrimp and a new fan!

Purple is my happy place.

After another really productive few days, I keep seeing progress. In an adapted version of Dorothy’s baked fish from last week, I utilized tilapia and shrimp last night. The tilapia went in the oven with olive oil, a little white wine, 3 slices of lemon, and red pepper, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper. The shrimp was marinated in a little olive oil with the juice of a lime, garlic, and smoky chipotle, then lightly sauteed with sliced zucchini in olive oil. The juice from the shrimp and the zucchini were abundant so I finished it up with high heat to reduce and thicken the juices. Served over rice, with green beans, it was quick, easy, and delicious.

Rando also installed a new porch fan! The one that was in the house when we bought it had succumbed to the humidity and the blades drooped finally to the point it was unhelpful. I took them off, intending to buy some new ones, but guess what? They did not make them anymore–you know, in the corporate plan of making things obsolete so you cannot repair them. That was a number of years ago, and while we were in process of new kitchen fans, we saw these spiffy outdoor fans in a cage. The blades are metal. I like the Art Deco vibe of the light.

I hustled off to Home Depot yesterday and picked up a few items for outdoor work. It has gotten a tad cooler and I have been able to tackle a few smaller chores long delayed. My To Do list is still pretty long, but the “do the next thing” system is whittling it down.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend and ready for whatever your Monday brings!

  5. I agree. Excellent choice for a porch instead of the normal long blade fan.

      So true! Thanks for the confirmation–and especially when it comes to wood fans or composite fans in Mississippi, right? For a minute, I thought you were agreeing with me about taking off the railing on the gallery porch. 🙂
