I have been so boring in the kitchen lately. We’ve been eating at home, but my “cooking” has mostly consisted of heating up salmon burgers and chicken sausages from the freezer with some roasted sweet potatoes on the side. Aiming high, I know.
But tonight I made something fresh and in season and pretty tasty. Based purely on ingredients I had in the house that needed to be used immediately I Googled salmon strawberry avocado and it led me to this recipe, from a blog I love, so I jumped on it.
I loved this served alongside roasted asparagus. Brent admitted, “I wasn’t sure about it, but it it was OK.” That’s about all the praise I get around here so I’ll take it. I followed this recipe pretty much as written but used lime juice instead of lemon in the salsa and pan-seared the salmon rather than grilling.
In other news, I got a permanent part time job starting April 29th and I’m pretty excited about it! I’ve really missed being a nurse and having a professional group of people to interact with, and I was a bit worried about letting my nursing license expire. It’s only a few afternoons a week so I think it’ll be a great compromise between getting to work but also spending tons of time with Cormac, including taking him to his weekly swim lessons.
Seriously, this kid’s cuteness is out of control!
