British Pub Food

My husband is from southern Spain and he grew up eating fish about 3 times a week.  I'm from El Paso, Texas and the only body of water nearby is the Rio Grande; not exactly fish country.  Luckily he married a woman who loves fish.  We try to eat it about six times a month.

This last week, I made British Pub food for dinner.

On the menu was fried, battered Cod, chips (fries) and mushy peas.

COD:

I bought one fillet of cod and cut it up into about six pieces. 
Then I dipped it in flour which I had seasoned with garlic salt and pepper.
The next dipping was in egg. (Two eggs beaten together).
Finally, I dipped it in Panko and made sure all the pieces were nicely covered.
I fried the cod in extra virgin olive oil until done.

CHIPS:

We peeled and diced five medium sized potatoes.  Pieces were fried in extra virgin olive oil until done.  We then placed them on a plate lined with a paper towel to soak up some of that oil.  We sprinkled them with some coarse salt.

Mushy Peas:

In a blender or food processor, finely chop 2 tbsp fresh mint and 2 tbsp fresh parsley. Before taking the herbs out of the blender/food processor, add 14 oz of defrosted green peas.  Pulse until you notice that half of the peas are mushy. :)

Now dice half of an onion and saute in extra virgin olive oil until translucent.

To the onion add 1 cup of chicken broth and the peas with mint and parsley.  Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper.

Mushy peas are done when most of the liquid has evaporated.

Not the healthiest, but delicious!
Enjoy!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
