Sad Mom

I just have a minute because I have a ton of things to accomplish today.

I'm so lonesome for Young One though. I always get like this after school vacations, breaks, and especially at back to school time in the fall. We're just good friends and we enjoy each other's company.

We had such a nice, relaxing break, it's very hard to get back into the routine again. I took a ton of pictures and just yesterday realized that the memory card in the camera was out of room. So, I just have a few. Oh well! The memories, and not the pictures, are what count, right? (Please assure me that I'm not a complete idiot and that everyone does this at some point!)

Salmon is Young One's favorite meal. I came up with this marinade last week when salmon was on sale.

Sesame Citrus Salmon

1/4 cup soy sauce

zest of one orange

juice from one orange

2 tsp brown sugar

2 tsp sesame oil

lots of fresh, minced garlic (I used 1 TB at least)

2 tsp fresh, grated ginger

1 whole, salmon fillet

Mix marinade ingredients. Pour over fish in a zip bag or in pan. Cover or close zip bag. Refrigerate at least an hour, it's better if it has longer. Bake, broil, or grill until salmon is opaque, flakes easily with a fork, and has an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.

  1. We ALL do it!! And it is just about the memories!
    The sad thing for me is I usually forget why I walked into the ither room by the time I get there!
    That's why I have to take pictures of EVERYTHING!

    But we always remember the important stuff :)


I triple dog dare you to comment.

Taking a little time to play with words, to play with food, and just to play!
