Project Beer: Round 2

Tonight's beer recipe was cod fillets poached in hefeweizen with lemon, allspice, red chile, and coriander. It was good, but not so magical that I think I'll make the exact recipe again.

However, the roasted leeks that I served with the fish were definite winners. Although, I think the recipe must be assuming larger leeks or less hungry people than we had available: I used 6 (admittedly smallish) leeks, and the two of us polished them off.

Another welcome discovery: The smoke alarm in the kitchen has a "shut up, I'm cooking" switch that will stop it from going off for 5 minutes after you press the button. I have always wanted one of these!
