"Out of all the days of the week, Sunday is the golden day." Mimi Thorisson, Manger

Sunday truly is the golden day. A welcome respite after a full week. In the morning we attend Church, often enjoy lunch with family or friends, and then rest until supper preparations begin. The table linens are pressed and laid out. Flowers bought and candles lit. The point is not to make it an event, but rather to make special the ordinary. It's a time to slow down and savor life.

Recently, my dad returned from a successful fishing trip with a friend. He brought home dozens of trout and salmon fillets. He has graciously shared his catch with us, and last night we prepared the first of the trout. We wrapped the trout tightly with prosciutto and then pan fried it until perfectly crispy, using this recipe. There is something utterly satisfying about tucking into a whole fish. A most ordinary meal, and yet it feels quite special.

  1. I love Sundays, mine was also spent cooking and eating. Those trout just look so fresh and beautiful, almost too pretty to eat!
