Saute 1/2 onion and 1/2 shallot in olive oil. Add garlic and cook briefly. Then...I cheated a little. I had a jar of cioppino sauce I found at World Market. I added that and about a 1/2 cup of dry, white wine and brought it to a simmer. Added a jar of clam juice and a tablespoon of red pepper flakes. Added 1 tsp of sea salt. Simmered for 20 minutes. Add in whatever fish you like. Clams are usually in this fish stew, but I couldn't find any live clams in Boise, and canned wouldn't be right - so I skipped them. I added bay scallops, chopped tilapia and raw shrimp and cooked until they were opaque. Stirred in about 2 tablespoons of butter and served topped with snow crab.

Strawberry yogurt smoothies with berries from the garden. Macerate the prepared berries with about a 1/2 cup of sugar. Add 1 cup of vanilla yogurt and a bit of milk. Add ice cubes. Blend until desired thickness. Add more ice, if needed.
We had leftovers, so tomorrow, we'll have frozen strawberry treats.

Breaded cod, or other white fish, pieces (I like Schwan's)
Pico de gallo (I prefer the fresh kind in the refrigerated case)
Small white corn tortillas
Shred green cabbage and squeeze a lime over the shreds. Toss with sea salt and let sit for at least 10 minutes. Bake fish. Whisk up the sauce: mayo, white vinegar, chili powder, garlic powder, ketchup. Warm tortillas a few at a time in the microwave between damp paper towels. Place a couple of pieces of fish in tortilla, dribble the sauce on top, top with shredded cabbage and pico de gallo.
