Easy Summer Dinner

We made such a fantastic dinner tonight and it was so easy!  This past month's Cookie magazine (I agree with Yummy Mummy about why this is the best) had a recipe for blender soups and we decided to try one today.  It was so good, I licked my bowl:

1 avocado
1 cucumber (seeded)
1/2 cup fat free greek yogurt, 1/2 cup skim milk (the Cookie recipe called for 1 cup buttermilk but we used these substitutions)
1 Tbsp shallot
juice from 1/2 lemon
cumin and salt to taste

Put it in the blender and whir it all together

This afternoon, after lunch at Hubbell and Hudson, we bought some sea bass for dinner and the preparation of this was equally easy and delicious:

1 cup wine
1/2 cup red miso paste (I keep this in the fridge, it lasts forever and is such a good flavoring)
2 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp ginger powder

Mix together and marinate fish for 2-6 hours.  Then put it on the grill on medium high heat for 6 minutes per side.

We had slow roasted some sweet potatoes and had these along side and some blueberries for dessert.  Oh! And I finally broke into that fancy box-o-wine (Washington Hills) that was light, sweet and paired well with everything.

As Backpack would say, "yum, yum, yum!  Delicioso!"
