Hey There! Good Morning!
How are you? I've been sleeping better, so I am doing well. It feels a bit balmy outside and it is quite breezy. Dampness in the air - I'm thinking it will end up being kind of a rainy day. Yesterday I actually was able to cross several more things off my "must do before vacation" list, so that is being whittled down. A nice feeling. Work was busy, but I managed to find time to make cookies, do some knitting and a little bit of stitching!
Today's recipe is for Firecracker Salmon. We had this earlier in the week (tonight we are having wings on the grill). This is an easy and tasty dish.
Mix up a marinade for the salmon:
- 2 TBS soy sauce
- 1TBS Sriracha
- 1 TBS EVOO
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp ginger (fresh is nice, but dried works well)
- Red Pepper Flakes
Spread the marinade over your salmon filets and refrigerate for 1/2 hour. Cook at 425 for approx. 18-20 minutes.
See? Very simple and very tasty. We had this with some farro and carrots cooked with a cinnamon stick.
The cookies I made yesterday were These - Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. The dough came together quickly. I added some dried cranberries and some pepitas to the mix and they are good! More like a cake texture than a cookie. Also, the recipe states it makes 36, but I guess mine were a little smaller as I ended up with 60!
Fletch even liked them, and he prefers a crispy, crunchy cookie. We will take some with us on vacation and I plan to give the rest to Colin when he comes over tonight.
Today...after my Thursday financial reports for work...I will be making a (new to me) recipe for granola bars. Again - some to take on vacation and some to share with Colin & Mailing. I'll let you know how those turn out and will share the recipe if it's a good one!
Meanwhile, onward and upward...lots to do today. Hope your Thursday is a good one.
