W Wanda gifted us with a beautiful side of salmon when she concluded her Alaskan visit. It’s been residing in our freezer just waiting for a day like today! I thawed it this morning, dressed it with lemon-pepper seasoning. It rested in the refrigerator marinating in zesty italian dressing.
I made stir fried rice while Ernie threw the salmon on the grill. YUMMY! Sorry I didn’t snap a picture. I never remember to grab the camera before we start eating.
Now, to decide what to do with the leftovers. It was a big fillet! I like salmon flaked over green salad…and I’m wondering if it could be flaked for salmon croquettes. Anyone have ideas for cooked salmon? Ernie probably won’t touch it again, so something I could use for lunches would be terrific.
Sunday’s dinner is resting before it goes to the refrigerator. I threw a beef roast in the slow cooker this morning. It appears to be tender and smells wonderful. A salad and some kind of potatoes will complete tomorrow night’s dinner. Good to have that done! Means more play time for me tomorrow afternoon :-)
Do you have favorite “cook ahead” meals? Want to share? I’m always open to new recipes that can be made ahead and free up sewing time.
