What’s for dinner? Some random evening last week

Life takes a hold of me sometimes, so I didn’t post this right away. But I’m doing it now!

Both Conan and I felt we were eating a lot of chicken lately, so fish was on the menu. I wanted tuna, but at $29.99/lb, I thought “No, I’m not made out of money at this moment, salmon will suffice.” And keeping in trend with saving money, I bought some seasonal produce, mainly a buttercup squash. The rest of the stuff I had in the fridge.

Salmon topped with tomato salsa

Salmon fillet
Tomatoes (I had both regular vine tomatoes and some cherry pear tomatoes)
Green onion (1 stalk)
Garlic (1 clove)
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Salt
Pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Wash and dry off salmon fillets
  3. Season with salt and pepper
  4. Bake until preferred doneness
  5. While salmon is cooking, dice up tomatoes and place in bowl
  6. Add salt and mix
  7. Chop up some green onion (I use the both the green and white parts, I’ve read some recipies where people only use the white – never understood why, makes no sense)
  8. Mince garlic
  9. Add to tomatoes
  10. Add in some olive oil and balsamic to liking
  11. Mix
  12. Serve ontop of salmon
  13. 

Buttercup Squash

Buttercup squash
Nutmeg
Cinnimon
Clove
Butter

  1. Steam squash
  2. Scrape out flesh
  3. Add some butter, spices and mash
  4. Serve

I also prepared some quinoa and Conan stir-fried some bean sprouts and celery.

Yeah I’m too lazy to write it all out! But come on!! It’s a stir-fry!! Like the easiest thing you can make – seriously!
