I get more than just by...with a little help from my Friends!

Tonight our dinner ingredients and the final product were a major gift from my friends! First, Catrina's husband Shawn went fishing last week. He caught a 9 lb. halibut, and I put dibs on a few fillets, since Catrina and Shawn don't even like fish!! Randi found a recipe in a magazine a while ago, and I put the halibut to use! A couple of layers of Russett potatoes, sweet potatoes, red potatoes sliced as the base, baked with feta cheese and butter. Cut up the fish in 2 to 3 inch chunks, coat in lemon juice, place on top of the baked potatoes, cover with panko bread crumbs mixed with dill and lemon zest. bake for another 15 minutes.

Of course in the middle of the baking....my oven dies! Potatoes done, what now? Call my friend Karen she lets me come finish baking my dinner for 15 minutes in her kitchen when we have had a 108 degree day. That is true friendship!!

On to the veggies on the side....my girl Mickie gave me a HUGE... AND I MEAN HUGE zuccini from her hubbies garden. Everyone was worried about it being tough, or tasteless....NEITHER!! Sliced up and sauted in some garlic butter.....MMMM....MMMM.....MMMMM!
Thank you girls! Excellent dinner thanks to YOU!

It looks great....call the next time you fix it and well will come right over. John and I just bought a sun oven last Fri. We have had it 3 days and I've used it to cook most of our meals since then. Next time you need to bake in this heat let me know and well do it outside.
By the way that is a darling picture of Karen. She is a sweetheart isn't she!
