I've been working late each night this week and because I am usually the one who cooks in our apartment and Whole Foods had a sale on Wild Coho Salmon, Woody made dinner for us Tuesday night. It was a very nice treat.
As many of you know, I started cooking a lot more when I was out of work. This was because I obviously had more time and because I felt it was a good way for me to contribute and give Woody something to look forward to after a long day at work. I do enjoy cooking and coming up with new dishes, but I bet most of you will agree that sometimes it can be exhausting trying to come up with something new to make. So, I decided (and Woody quickly agreed) that he's going to make dinner sometimes - like once every week or so. He's a good cook, but I've just been doing all the planning and cooking of late. It was nice to come home Tuesday night and have a delicious meal on the table just a few minutes later!
He baked the salmon with a bit of lemon juice and ground pepper. He also sauteed kale from the farmers market with onion and a little extra virgin olive oil and made a big pot of quinoa (using the new strainer I bought the other day to rinse the grains). Just look at how delicious this meal looks?
It was both delicious and healthy! As THIS list from the Monterey Bay Aquarium (the leading resource in healthy fish options), Wild Coho Salmon is one of the best kinds of salmon to eat. I'm so glad we were able to get it on such a great sale, too! (tip: Whole Foods has a one-day sale each week on a great item. You can download the sale flyer for your local WF's store from their website to know when the sale is.)
