Recipe For Apple Cider Mackerel

Of all the things I have lost, I miss my mind the most! This seems such an apt saying for me right now. I have lost my memory. I certainly hope that where ever it is vacationing, it is having a good time! Also, I need it back. I think I am being challenged right now as I am so tired. I am just not sleeping well. I woke up ten days ago with a sore throat and since then my sleep has been fitful. It has finally caught up with me, and right now, I could put my head on the desk and catch a quick snooze. Instead, I will have to conquer the day and my tiredness as we have house guests for 2 days. This quick meal using mackerel should be perfect for entertaining!

PS, I wrote this post a month ago! The house guests came and we had an amazing time with them. They shared the good news of their engagement and hopefully we will go overseas for their wedding! Congratulations to the both of you – may your lives be filled with love always πŸ™‚

  4. I love everything horseradish! Some horseradish potatoes sound delicious–yum yum. Although, I’m a huge fan of mashed cauliflower as a sub for potatoes, and that might be even tastier with horseradish!

    I hope you get a chance to catch up on sleep–but guests tend to make that hard to do.
