One fish, three Sams, and some graffiti

Mom, this is for you, since you wanted to see how the fish came out:
The fish: tilapia. From: Emek HaYarden (but bought at the shuk, where we watched the guy slice off the tail, shuck off the scales and fins, and dig out the insides). Stuffed with: Lemon, onion, garlic. Was planning to make mom's semi-Moroccan fish recipe, but that involves "medium sized chunks" of tilapia. And cutting a fish when raw (even when cooked, but be glad I've spared you those pictures) is super messy. So I scrapped that idea and instead took mom's replacement suggestion, of just baking him, and doing the vegetables (next picture) separately.

The vegetables: zucchini, red peper, onion, garlic, ginger root, tomatoes, paprika, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Sauteed till mushy and delicious, but still with different colors distinguishable. Served on the side.

The set table, from left: couscous with raisins and almonds, the fish, the vegetables. This meal was, of course, cooked in Adj's kitchen, because it was laundry night! [And we don't have an oven...]

This picture (or a similar one from the thirty-photo series) also made an appearance on my Facebook page. It is simply to show how many Sams can fit on one couch. Here we have a Sam T. sandwiched by two Sam G.'s, all of whom go to Yale. One of whom (the middle one) I live with.

This is just a funny graffiti on the way to the grocery store (where I went today to get some basics--although the eggs there were 2x as expensive as at the corner store, so I got those later--including chocolate chips and flour, because we're going to make cookies sometime! And challah! At Adj's, of course...).
