Let me tell you a story of how I started off all dressed up and pretty.. and then ended with me scrubbing my skin off in the shower…. and I know you want a story… soooo….
Sunday — Late start to the day… ready to spend the day with Mommy :]
Had a great brunch at Bullfinch’s with their fatty juicy big sausages, tomato/mushroom/spinach omelette, toast, bacon and delish pastries!!! No morning booze this time around.. but can you spot my coffee cup? :] I claimed it with my lipstick!
Decided to do my weekly grocery shopping at Russo’s for all the fruit and veg and WF for the meats :]
Ready to get cooking!!! Set my oven and got to cleaning and chopping!
Peekaboo. I don’t smell bad.
White wine, lemon, rosemary, shallots, s&p and some hot peppers for a slight kick :] Just for fun!
In a pre-heated oven set to 420 degrees — Covered for 30 minutes and opened for 5 minutes. Perfection.
After I popped this into the oven I prepped and cooked the side veg.
It was delicious and tender.. I paired it with some lightly roasted cauliflower, sauteed garlicky spinach and some leftover okra I made a few days ago. YUM! The flesh flaked away and melted in our mouths!!!! Light lemony, rosemary flavor that didn’t overpower the delicate meat. DELISH! Fresh is always best!
When I was little my mom scarred me for life by telling me that fish scales will stick to my skin FOREVER if I get them on me. To this day I HATE scales and they make me wanna puke. So buying a beautiful red snapper at WF yesterday and making it was torture when I realized they didn’t clean the fish well enough.
WTF?! I just googled about it and found this: FOR REALZ?!?!?!
RESULTS: The scales physically adhered and formed a raised fold of skin within minutes after placement. Lesions were submitted for pathologic evaluation on days 2 and 7. A subacute irritant dermatitis was observed that evolved into a chronic dermatitis with hyperkeratosis. Inverted fish scales (the anatomically reversed surface) and fish epidermis did not produce such lesions on the mice.
Why couldn’t it be glamourous like this?
ps. DON’T, I repeat DO NOT!!!! google image “fish scales human skin” I can’t get the second image out of my head… omg…. I feel sick.
So after dinner I told my mom that she freaked me out with the “Urban Legend” she told me that it was true and I better go shower. OMG I was in a HOT shower for like 20lbs freaking out after… :[
BTW. Writing about fish scales totally sucked balls cuz now I’m itching like crazy…. I know it’s all in my head but *shivers* I didn’t really think of it as a phobia til now HAHA…
