I have to toot my own horn over dinner last night. The salmon was like butta...literally melt in your mouth.
I grilled it...we don't own a grill. I'm tricky like that. ;-) Actually, now that we have a gas stove, I can grill inside!
We registered for one of those double-sided griddles when we got married, but haven't had a gas stove to use it. I got so excited when I remembered we had it!
I made a rub for the salmon that was pretty darn close to blackening seasoning:
It made a lot, so I stored it in an empty spice bottle for next time.
Threw some asparagus (with olive oil, salt & pepper) on the grill, cooked some brown rice and mixed in beans that were ready to go and dinner was served. If I had a hot man named Patrick sitting next to me at the table, it probably would have tasted even better....but that will come soon.
A girl can dream right?
*Random trivia fact: did you know that whether your pee smells like asparagus or not after digesting it is actually a genetic trait? Doesn't happen to everyone.
