Hey there!

How was everyones 4th of July? Did you see any fireworks? There are a lot of areas now that don’t allow them. I can’t really blame them. They are pretty dangerous, but they are still a lot of fun to watch. We haven’t seen them for the last two years –> hello baby. He can’t stay awake later than 8pm, so that doesn’t work out so well for a 9:30 pm fireworks show! Maybe next year he will be able to stay awake for it.

As you all may know by now, I married into a Norwegian family. Norwegians constantly are eating fish and potatoes. Usually they will boil cod or fry it up. I wanted to try a healthier version using coconut oil, spelt flour and almond meal.

I honestly think I like this version way better than the original version. The almond meal just gives the cod such a nice sweet, nutty crunch. And the coconut oil gives it a lovely tropical flavor. Add a dash of lemon juice and man oh man you have yourself an incredibly satisfying meal!
