This week is going to be quite fishy in the Fagan household. We bought two different kinds of fish at the grocery store yesterday and are feelin’ the fishy flavor!
Tonight we used fish number one, steelhead trout, as the shining star of our evening meal.
We ate the trout (prepared the same way I make salmon) with a side of roasted broccoli and a tangerine.
From the fridge to the plate in 15 minutes. Oh yes.
One of the best parts of dinner for me this evening was actually the roasted broccoli. I think I overdid it on roasted broccoli a while back and haven’t been craving it at all in the recent months. My craving for the cruciferous vegetable returned tonight and I’m so glad!
It’s a good one!
A couple of weeks ago, I got a quote for framing the portrait that was nearly $100. Since the picture and matting are an irregular size, I thought I needed a custom frame made. When the quote came back close to $100, I decided against it and brought the portrait home, figuring I could try to cut the matting myself.
Then I talked to my mom and she suggested simply paying for the picture to be professionally matted to fit into a frame of my choosing. Smart woman!
A new non-customized frame plus custom matting ended up being about $30. The matting was only $8! Much better than $100, huh? And the frame I bought looks just like the one I was going to have custom made. Score!
Perhaps what I am most excited about is that this is the final picture we’ve been waiting to hang for our master bedroom to be complete. Expect a bedroom tour on the blog soon! It’s been a while since I did the sneak peak and I think I’ve kept you guys in the dark for way too long.
