Baked Halibut with Mushroom Rice Pasta

Last night we had a sick dog (her name is Maggie) in our house, she still isn't 100% but she is getting better.  We have her on a diet of cooked white rice and boiled chicken.  Not very exciting but for her it is bland and it will help for her to get better.  So because of that I did not cook, instead we opted to eat out (as in go pick it up and bring it back) which made it much easier to keep an eye on her.  What I had planned on having for last night's dinner turned into tonight's dinner.

Baked Halibut
Place 2 halibut steaks onto a cookie sheet (I covered it with foil to make clean-up easier), squeeze lemon juice over, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place into a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for about 15 minutes (it will depend on the thickness of your halibut).  If you want it to be a little more brown on top, turn broiler on until brown, but don't overdo it.

Mushroom Rice Pasta
The other night I made Stir Fry Chicken and Vegetables and had some leftover rice noodles (I had cooked too much) so I decided to use it in tonight's dinner.  The amount that was leftover was about 1 cups worth.
1 package of mixed mushrooms (oyster, button, etc)
2 cloves of garlic, pressed
6 calmata olives
olive oil
leftover rice noodles
In a skillet over heat some olive oil over medium high heat.  Add mushrooms and garlic and stir.  Cook until mushrooms have browned slightly and softened.  Add noodles and olives, toss.  Sprinkle with a little bit of salt.  Serve

Fried Plantains
To cook them peel the outside off, slice the plantain.  Add slices to a warm skillet that has a little bit of olive oil.  Add plantains to skillet and cook, flipping several times until they reach a golden brown.
