Miso Sea Bass, Wasabi Mashed Potatoes, and Simple Salad with Ginger Carrot Dressing

Sorry y'all. Long time no post. Work has been crazy, we're about to go on vacation and my baby is turning one in a couple of weeks so I've been spending any free time planning a little family party. Anyway Saturday we had a couple of friends over for a potluck and one of the best meals I've eaten in a long time. I volunteered to make miso sea bass and my two girlfriends filled in the gaps with Asian themed sides. And boy did they fill those gaps!

This will now be my go to meal when I'm stumped for what to serve at a dinner party. Everything when together perfectly. Sweet and sticky glazed sea bass, subtly spicy creamy mashed potatoes and a crisp salad with a refreshing carrot ginger dressing. So good!

However if I'm being honest I'm not sure I'll ever make an entire meal by myself again for company. It's kind of more fun when everyone has a hand in creating the meal…not to mention a lot less work.

Hope your summer is winding down and/or you're squeezing every last ounce of it. Personally I have never been so excited to kiss it goodbye and welcome a change in weather. Some rain would be nice too but who am I kidding? It doesn't rain in Austin anymore.
