Additional Information:
I have been working late for weeks and neglected making dinner. I need to get the household management and health back to order. It feels good to be able to focus on nutritious food again. Florian liked it very much, as it had been quite sometime since I spent effort making dinner. However, Joshua refused to eat it. After a bout of sickness this week, Joshua received special attention and he became very spoilt. We are trying to build back the discipline again. Even as I am writing, he is crying and making a fuss upstairs at the shower. However, as parents, we have to win the battle.

I got this recipe from the Danish newspaper. The original directions in Danish:
1. Skrub kartoflerne, skær dem i kvarte, gnid dem og hvidløg med olie og timiankviste, krydr med salt og peber.
2. Læg kartoflerne i et ovnfast fad, og sæt dem i ovnen ved 200 grader i 30 min.
3. Læg fisken i et ovnfast fad med bagepapir, og steg med i ovnen i 10-12 min.
4. Kog ærterne op i urtebouilon, hæld væden fra, men gem den.
5. Blend ærterne med 1 spsk. olie og lidt af bouillonen, smag til med salt og peber.
6. Anret fisken med citronskiver og dild, ærtepure og kartofler og med soltørrede tomater ved siden af.
