Happy Friday everyone! So glad the weekend is finally almost here 🙂 It’s been kind of a hectic morning, so let’s just jump right in, shall we?
Last night was full of great food and fairly productive too! I started off with a POM cocktail:
I just kind of dumped everything over ice, but it’s about 1 oz of rum, 1/2 cup of POM juice, 1/2 cup of club soda, and a squeeze of lime! Super refreshing, and it reminded me of being in the Caribbean 🙂
Mmmmmmmm, just look at that melty cheese! I just grilled some salmon (brush with olive oil and a bit of salt, grill for 2-3 minutes on each side, then cover with foil for 10 minutes. Break apart with a fork), roasted some zucchini and yellow squash (1 tsp olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, roast for 5 minutes on 400, then broil for 3-5 minutes until browned), and quickly “caramelized” some onions (slice an onion, add about 1/2 cup water, boil for 3-5 minutes, then add 1 Tbsp of sugar and a dash of chili powder. Cook until onions are caramelized and all liquid is gone). Once all that was done I coated a pan in non-stick spray, and layered a little cheese, the salmon, the squash, the onions, and a little more cheese. Cook on medium-low heat until browned on both sides and cheese is melted!
The avocado cream recipe can be found on this post (scroll down a couple recipes) – it’s one that I made a LOOOOOOOONG time ago and loved! I worked on the articles I mentioned yesterday and then when Nate got home we watched The Office and 30 Rock and then hit the sack. We’re very exciting 🙂
This morning I woke up, got ready for work, and made a chocolate peanut butter GM (finally! I’ve been craving this for so long):
Marriage Ref Friday
I guess it’s a good thing that Nate and I don’t really argue about a lot of things, but I’m starting to run out of Marriage Ref ideas! AH! I did get one from a reader though, so we’ll vote on that 🙂 If one person needs to wash some of their clothes, is it OK if they do a load of laundry with JUST their stuff, or should they wash some of their partner’s clothing too? Vote by leaving a comment and we’ll tally up the votes to get a winner by 5pm Mountain Time today!
