Sunday Supper - Panko Crusted Cod

A couple of Sundays ago, I had a lovely stroll around Boston which included a trip to Whole Foods where I bought a nice looking piece of cod.  I had seen Courtney from Barefoot in Boston cook some panko crusted cod up on her blog and thought I would try my hand at it.  I cook a lot of things well but fish is one of those things that I've never really felt comfortable cooking so thanks to Courtney for her post.

I rubbed the cod with dijon mustard, sprinkled it with salt and pepper, then coated it with lemon zest and panko breadcrumbs.  I baked it in the oven at around 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.

I made a fresh tomato and basil salad with these gorgeous summer ripe tomatoes and really fruity olive oil.

Then I cooked up some green beans and cheated with a box of Near East rice pilaf.  It was really delicious and I especially loved the flavor from the dijon mustard and lemon zest.

If fish isn't your thing, on another night I made boneless chicken breasts the same way and they too were quite delicious.

Flower Power

Sinclair top, Ann Taylor skirt

I wore this Sinclair shirt today that makes me feel like I could fly away with sleeves that are like wings!

 Zara jacket, French Sole sandals, Balenciaga bag

Since my office building has temperature control issues and I never know if it's going to be freezing, I stuffed those wings in the flower printed Zara jacket.  I've been at work pre-7AM all week so I'm ready for the weekend...TFIG all!

A Couple Days Late

Reiss jacket, Balenciaga bag, Jimmy Choo shoes

I had to gussy up today for a meeting at work with a bunch of buttoned up suit types so I wore this Ann Taylor polka dotted and pleated skirt that I just love.  I paired it with a red Zara top and white Reiss blazer.

J Crew necklaces, Zara top, Ann Taylor skirt

I was halfway through the day before I realized that I was in patriotic red, white and blue just a couple days late for the 4th of July holiday.

Fall Colors

Despite being in the height of summer, a few things this weekend geared me up for fall.

 Chanel graphite and peridot nail polishes

I spent the long weekend in Florida which always requires a stop into Nordstom's at the Gardens Mall.  During my walk through the makeup area I was smacked in the face with this iridescent green gold Chanel nail polish called Peridot.  And since I was there I also picked up Chanel's sparkly graphite polish.

 

St. John jacket

I then took a quick lap around Saks to check out some of the sale items.  Honestly, I'm not the best sale shopper.  I never seem to have the patience to comb through the sale racks but on this trip, this St. John jacket practically jumped out at me. 

 

How could I pass up the tulle covered pearl embellished details for a deep discount?
