happy bloggerversary to me: mexican fish & bean salad

Little did I know that my one-year food blog anniversary had slipped me by. No public ceremonies, no cake. My very first post was written on February 20, 2005 and even though I had good intentions to write often about my own culinary adventures, life and wedding plans seemed to take over. Things didn’t really kick in until August when I had returned from a 1 month honeymoon road trip. Work was slow and I needed to keep the creative juices flowing so I privately created one of those 101 things to do in 1001 days lists. Lucky for me, sandwiched between “buy a home” (probably will never happen since Vancouver’s average housing prices are way out of league for teachers, police officers and nurses — not to mention poor arty types like freelance designers!) and “get bangs again” (done!) was this blog entry which read “post at least 1 new recipe a week on food blog”. Done! So yay me!

I made this for dinner tonight and even though I just played about making this recipe up as I went along, it turned out fantastic, impressing both myself and Cornelius! It looks like a lot of steps, but it didn’t seem labourious at all…especially since I made the black bean salad component for my lunch and used the leftovers for this dish. Make sure to read through the recipe first before starting so you don’t miss anything!

    Yay–happy anniversary! (Sorry I’m a little late on this.) Ours is coming up in about six weeks. Very weird.

    The fish salad looks amazing.
