We had lunch at the Foggy Goggle where I enjoyed a bloody mary :)
and a veggie burger by Portland's own Blue Mango. It was unlike any veggie burgers I've had and it was really really good! I also love that it is Maine made. I will definitely be purchasing more Blue Mango products soon!
Today temperatures neared 60 degrees in Portland. What better way to enjoy the warm day than with hot chowder?! It was a weird choice... but I had to cook some Cod and I wasn't about to let it go to waste!
Fish and Corn Chowder:
1 carton veggie stock
1 huge fillet of Cod (or any white fish)
1 large onion
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
1/2 teaspoon Sage
2 bay leaves
1 cup 1% milk
1 tablespoon butter
This was so easy and delicious. I usually steer clear of chowders because they are so heavy and definitely filled with lots-o-fat. This version is quite light even though it looks really creamy. I did not use any cream! Saute the onions in your soup pot until tender, add stock, spices, corn. Bring up to med-high heat and add butter and milk. Add fish and simmer until white and flaky.
Corn bread muffins were a mix. They look great but were actually quite unpleasant. I didn't have vegetable oil which it called for so I substituted Greek yogurt and vegan butter... I don't recommend this.
Have a great evening!
