Favorite Salmon Recipe and Multi Grain Pilaf

I have been out running errands trying to put a care package together for daughter Katy who is living in Spain. I am having a great time doing this by the way! More about that later after I have hunted and gathered all of her requests! I came home to grab some lunch and do a quick post before I head back out for more shopping.

I decided yesterday to switch our meals around and make lunch our big meal for the day. In my quest for eating more fish (as per my goals for the Hot 100 challenge) I chose to have salmon.┬áIndividually wrapped salmon thawed out quickly and I added some oven roasted broccoli and heated up Trader Joe’s multi grain pilaf. We also enjoyed a side salad of baby greens with my new favorite salad dressing. Then for dinner I just had a Boca on Ezekiel bread and another salad. I rather liked eating the bigger meal at noon for a change. I did my weight work out after dinner and I wasn’t too full so it was easy to bend and stretch and lift weights. So far so good on my goals for the last 100 days of the year!

I have posted about this salmon recipe before but if you didn’t see it or you did but haven’t tried it yet, you owe it to yourself to give it a whirl! Salmon is one of my favorite fish and this recipe seems to find it’s way to the table quite often. It is easy, super flavorful and it looks pretty too! You can find the recipe for Honey Glazed Salmon by clicking here.

The Trader Joe’s multi grain pilaf is a big hit with my family. Two minutes in the microwave and it is ready! Love it!

I divide it into 4 servings.

Sometimes doing your best is not good enough…sometimes you must do what is required.

    Our big meal is in the evening, when we have one. If my teen is not going to be eating with us I am happy not to cook and hubby and I fend for ourselves. That may mean an apple with peanut butter (although not lately, darn peanut butter) or a frozen Kashi meal.

    I’ll tell ya, sometimes I can’t bear to read your blog out of pure food envy. I feel too bad to cook and can’t eat anything even if I could. But BOY your sure make some awesome stuff. Most of it looks not too hard, which I love. As soon as I’m better there are several of your recipes I want to try. So don’t stop posting, ok?

    Thanks for the product review – looks GREAT! I’ll have to try it. My b, l and d are about the same size. If one is a little bigger it’s probably dinner!

    Great looking food! I would love that pilaf! Found a recipe for Bacon-Barley Risotto that I want to try!

    We have our big meal in the evening. We eat quite early because we both like our evenings free.
    When I was growing up our main meal was at noon & always called “dinner”….meal at night was supper.Bryce still calls “lunch” dinner!!
