This was the most simple dinner, and the most delicious. What does that tell ya? Quality ingredients RULE! That’s wild-caught Alaskan sockeye from Costco. It cost an arm and a leg, but I cut it into more than 12 3-oz portions, and froze them individually. I put the salmon steaks on foil, drizzled them with olive oil and lemon juice, and sprinkled with seasoning salt. … Continue reading Grilled Salmon w/Greek Salad.

But for me, the weekends are always going to … Continue reading Day 5.
