Does anybody get Cook’s Country magazine? I found a fish recipe that I believe is very similar to this Pan Fried Cod with Oregano and Parsley Dressing recipe in a recent issue. I say, ‘I believe’ because I accidentally threw out the magazine before I had a chance to read through the recipe. I created this recipe solely based off the name. If it’s close to the original, I’d be shocked and amazed.
Whatever the inspiration, it sure turned out well. It’s so simple and yet full of flavor. My garden is bursting with oregano so it was great to use the fresh herb. Parsley and oregano are rather strong herbs so the balance of the dressing is important. If you keep the proportions as is, you’ll be fine.
I usually post my monthly seasonal produce guide in the beginning of the month but this month, it just wasn’t happening. Tyler who will be 7 months old tomorrow, had his first cold. It was so sad to watch our little guy sneeze, cough and wheeze his way through the week. Patient zero then took down myself followed by his father. Dada held out the longest but it’s hard not to get sick when Tyler refuses to cover his mouth when he coughs or sneezes. We really must work on his manners. Therefore, not much work got done this week. It was mostly just wiping runny noses and lots of sleep. I’m still stuffy and coughing as I write this so fingers crossed we’ll recover soon and get back to our regular schedule. Look for the November seasonal produce guide next week.
