  • Reflection Question
    Climate & Ecosystems Know Your Sustainable Seafood Options
    What was the tastiest sustainable seafood meal you ever had or had recently? Did you make it? Can you share a recipe?

    We have baked haddock or cod about once a week, frequently cooked in the quick and easy style of the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives cookbook: Put the fish in a baking pan, season with salt & pepper, spread the surface with a very thin layer of mayonnaise. Toss a handful of finely diced onion  over the surface (even quicker, use dehydrated onion from the cupboard), and if desired, add some lemon zest or finely chopped herbs. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and  unseasoned panko breadcrumbs. Dot with a little bit of butter, and bake at 350 until fish flakes with fork.

    Uninspired, I put a variety of available ingredients into the search bar, and voila! The internet offered me many, many, many recipe options for a vegetarian dinner. We ended up with a tasty, easy black bean, corn, & veggie enchilada casserole from ingredients I had on hand.

    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    Too much indoor/screen time disconnects me from the natural world.  Getting outside for a daily dog walk (or swim, if she's lucky) makes me feel more connected to the earth.
