Tonight’s meal was perfectly portioned for one person. No matter what I do, I feel like every time I cook I end up with left overs in some shape or form, so tonight I made sure there was just enough for little ole me. This also prevented me from going back to the stove to pick at the food that’s left (a bad habit I have formed!). Since there was no food to pick at I was safe. 🙂
A couple of weeks ago I saw Shannon bake a Stuffed Salmon that looked absolutely amazing and has been an idea in my head ever since. I took her recipe and reworked it with the ingredients I had on hand.
I picked up these amazing single portions of salmon today at Whole Foods and stuffed one with garlic, fresh spinach & ricotta cheese. I then seasoned the salmon with salt and pepper, some oregano and baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
The end product was very tasty and I enjoyed every delicious bite.. This is a great, easy way to spice up boring salmon. Thank you Shannon for putting the great idea into my head.
On the side I also enjoyed some oven roasted brussel sprouts and some Wheat Bulgar.
I also had a slice of this amazing bread that arrived in the mail today.
My winnings from the Apple: Blogger Secret Ingredient contest arrived this afternoon. I could not wait to try it, but I managed to hold off until dinner. Let me tell you this bread iss amazing!! I chose the Nut & Grain Bread from Dave’s Killer Bread. The bread has a nutty flavor to it, with a nice crunch from the great seeds that flow through it.
Thanks again to Andrea and Erin for awarding me with this amazing prize. The bread is very yummy. I look forward to consuming more of the loaf in my the future.
I caved today at Publix and bought some frozen yogurt. Every week I manage to dodge the Ice Cream row as I maze my way through the store, but this week I had such a MAJOR sweet tooth that I somehow managed to hit the aisle first. Weird how that happens? I routed through the case and found some Peanut Butter cup Frozen Yogurt! I literally gasped when I saw it! Yum!
Tonight I had 1/2 cup of the Peanut Butter Cup Frozen Yogurt on top of a broken up Pumpkin Bar. I present to you the perfect dessert! I even microwaved the bar for 15 secs so it was nice and warm, which contrasted nicely with the cold yogurt. I could have easily of had another bowl of this. 🙂
I got alot done today that needed to be done! I now have a stocked kitchen, clean clothes, an empty DVR, an organized living room and so on and so on. The only problem is now, I really do have NOTHING to do tomorrow! Maybe I will just be a lazy pool bum! ?!? Cross your fingers for cloudless skies or I may have my butt glued to the couch. We shall see. 🙂
