A dinner I made last week, everything was quick and easy and delicious.

Fish with onions and the delicious bacon spinach

Bacon spinach

Chop up 4 slices bacon, crisp in tall pot, add in about 1/3 c. shallot or onion, cook til translucent, add 2-3 bags fresh spinach and toss until steamed to taste.

Fish with Onions and Mushrooms
This was super good and easy, recipe from John Ryan

1 slice bacon
1 cup sliced onion
4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
Salt and pepper
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 fish fillets (about 6 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 tablespoon butter

Crisp bacon, set aside, then sauté the onion until translucent, add mushrooms. Add salt and pepper to taste. When the mushrooms are almost cooked, add the wine and vinegar then simmer half the wine away.

Lay fish on top, cover, and maintain a steady simmer 5-10 minutes until fish is done. Remove fish to warm platter. Stir butter into pan drippings [this is where i squeezed in half a lemon, but it was overwhelming and I would skip this step next time, or use less] then pour over fish and crumble bacon on top.

Rice
This may not be entirely accurate:
Cooked rice in rice cooker with half water, half stock, a smidge of saffron, a handful of pistachios, a drizzel of olive oil, and…some kind of herbs, I don’t remember which. There was no bacon in the rice.
