I don't particularly enjoy cooking for people that don't always have my food. If I mess up, there's really no way to redeem myself.
At Whole Foods this afternoon, my dad informed me I was to whisk together dinner tonight for him, my uncle, my brother, my grandmother, and myself. My grandmother and my brother follow a white-food diet, so fish it was. I remembered a simple recipe on doitdelicious.com with halibut, a fish I'd actually never cooked before. Of course problems arise: the fish is much thicker than the recipe calls for, so it took fifteen minutes longer, which, in turn, caused the bed of spinach to practically burn (however, my consumers were polite to tell me otherwise). Here's the basic recipe. But, as lessons teach, expect to improvise and compromise with... isn't that what cooking is?
