Sweater To-date and a recipe

Sleeves, fronts and back are all together and the hood is started.  I added 1/2 inch of ribbing at the neck to make the hood roll better.  The pattern is confusing because the hood is knit on smaller needles than the body but it still seems to be rolling along.

Now, the recipe.

I guess that bacon is currently the most popular food in the foodie universe.  There are a lot of reasons why.  Tonight's dinner was one example of the ability of bacon to elevate the barely palatable to the really good.

We have been trying to eat more fish.  Unfortunately our favorite way is beer battered and fried.  With french fries and tartar sauce.  But that is not the healthiest way.  I am sure this recipe isn't either but it does have bacon!

Bacon Wrapped Cod Fillets

Preheat the oven to 425.  Heat a skillet on the stove top (cast-iron works really well here).
Per cod fillet use one slice of thick-cut bacon
Season each fillet with seasoning - I used Penzeys Smokey Seasoned Salt.
Fold the fillet in half - tail end to head end.  This is easier with the cut side to the inside.
Stretch each slice of bacon on a cutting board with the flat of your knife.  It will get to be about twice as long.
Wrap the folded fillet with the bacon.  Overlap the beginning and tuck in the end. 
Place the fillets in the skillet, browning the top and bottom.
Place skillet with fish in the oven for 15 minutes.


Okay, I know, bacon.  It is for dinner.
