So. We invited my brother to dinner, which I cooked. Marc is very fussy, so I had to be careful.
I made mesclun with yellow tomatoes and red onion in a mustard/garlic vinaigerette of cider vinegar and plain olive oil; panfried trout files spiced with citrus pepper and served with steamed brussel sprouts and baked potatoes; pears and brie. We had a nice white wine that went well with the fish and the cheese.
