Today's Lunch Menu

One f the perks of working from home is that I get to take the time to make delicious food for myself whenever I want. 

Today for lunch I made pan fried cod fillet seasoned with garlic & basil and a romaine and spinach salad with homemade blue cheese dressing.  

I seasoned the fillet with basil and garlic and cooked in a pan with a generous amount of butter (mmmm) over medium high heat. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side or until done. Salt and pepper to taste.

The ridiculously large salad (I ate about double what I have pictured) is one small head of romaine lettuce, roughly chopped baby spinach, croutons and homemade bleu cheese dressing. 

My husband works for a gourmet food distributor, Paris Brothers, as the cheese and charcuterie category manager so we always have an abundance of delicious cheeses and cured meats at our house. For the dressing I used Point Reyes Bleu (I would also recommend Maytag blue). I crumbled the cheese, added a bit of mayonnaise, sour cream, a splash of cream and salt to taste. Finish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and black pepper. 

This so beats the ham and cheese sandwich I normally take to work!
