Good night!

I hope you are all having a fabulous & healthy Thursday. Can you believe tomorrow is Friday once again?

I am still trying to stay positive despite my injury. My body is really craving the runner’s high, so this is a lesson in patience that is forsure. I can only hope that my body will heal itself quickly and use all the wonderful nutrients that I am giving it.

So last night’s dinner was a hit!

I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to throw together, until I started cooking. Often my best meals come that way. I am not a big meal planner- I tend to make all my meal decisions at the last minute. I typically only plan meals ahead when it is a special occasion that I am cooking for.

Salmon Vegetable Medley

Ingredients:

  • Frozen vegetables (1-1.5 cups)
  • Fresh chopped vegetables (1 carrot, 1 tomato, 1 red pepper)
  • 1 Clove of garlic (I used frozen garlic)
  • 1 can of fresh water salmon
  • freshly ground pepper
  • Italian salad dressing (I used Kraft light)
  • No salt added Sun-dried tomato & herb seasoning blend

1a. Chop carrot, tomato, and red pepper. Simmer in a frying pan with 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil. Season with herbs. Cook on low-medium temp for about 10 mins or so.

1b. While fresh veggies are cooking, cook frozen vegetables in a pot of water on the stovetop for about 5 mins. Do not overcook veggies (it depletes the nutrients). Drain and place frozen veggies in a large bowl.

Canned salmon has always grossed me out since it has the skin and bones in it, I need to find a skinless boneless kind and I’d be all set!

Oooh, the contest looks like fun! Lots of good stuff. I checked out the Neal Brothers website, because I’ve never seen their stuff before out here on the west coast. It would be amazing to win that huge gift box. I’ll definitely be staying tuned and getting my creativity cap on!
