Beware the Ides of March

as i was walking back to my office today from the studio, the one and only Willie Nelson pops out of his tour bus. He must have recognized my  dumbfounded expression and just came over shook my hand and asked me my name. i think all i uttered was it “it’s a pleasure to meet you”. I was too flustered to ask for a quick photo. He was very gracious and kind to me though and just had the overall demeanor of a very kind man.

There’s a dirty rumour of Norah Jones being in the studio but so far it is just a rumour.

now that would make my week.

-that is all

Orange Filet Of Tilapia en Papillote
I took a class at the Viking Cooking School nearby and learned several techniques for cooking fish. This is one of them which i just made. Its tilapia with carrots, zucchini, orange zest & juice. The whole things is sealed up in a parchment pouch and baked to perfection. it comes out very aromatic, moist and tasty. I had a few problems but overall rather tasty. A little brown rice and sauteed mushrooms completed the dish.
