Wild Alaskan Cod, Crispy Coated, Garlic Roasted Medley Tomatoes

Even if you too are a bit delirious from the onslaught of so many consecutive days of dreary, dreary rain, then welcome to the shared table this bright and cheery dish, Wild Alaskan Cod, Crispy Coated, Garlic Roasted Medley Tomatoes.


Aren’t those bright multi colored medley of tomatoes lovely? I bet you’ll agree, well, if you fancy little roasted tomatoes, that is.

It seems the rain in these parts just will not go away. I’m wearied of smiling uplifting speeches to family members “oh but look how green the grass is, and it will make the flowers and garden so lush.’ 


Giving you an idea on the effects of continuous rain in my household, somewhere before 7 am, after listening to hours of plundering rain drops on the roof I thought I must be seeing things upon descending the second floor stairway.

Constructively ridding lots of pent up energy after days of being stuck indoors at home and in school, my Grandson, the J-Dude, who is by no means a hyper active kid was in his bike helmet riding his Segway round and round and round the entire first floor, hard wood and tiled floors speeding fast, slowing down, speeding up, spinning, doing tricks, back around the kitchen island.

This went on for nearly the full hour before leaving for the bus stop less I had him eat his breakfast and brush his teeth.


Speaking of the bus stop, and the decibel noise range of a bunch of elementary school students that have been cooped up for nearly over a week and a half now. Goodness.

The poor Bus Driver! The poor teachers! Imagine each teacher having to keep around twenty plus children in check with no outdoor recess for nearly two school weeks! Even the thought of it.

Hopefully sunny days will shortly appear on the horizon but until then why not add some colorful cheer to your shared table and prepare a happy, tasty meal like Wild Alaskan Cod, Crispy Coated, Garlic Roasted Tomatoes?!
