     This photo has been sitting on my desktop for a while, waiting for me to do something with it. It's been a month since I last posted something, so it was time. I have so many things in my "blog bucket" that I needed to put a little dent in it.
     I enjoyed this dinner so much a while back, I had to take a photo of it. When I feel like I can't ever think of anything to cook, then I can look at this and be reminded that a little effort goes a long way. The Salmon patties are sold at Costco and are so versatile. I use them like I would a Salmon Filet. I've used them in tacos and just had 1/2 of one in a salad today. They do not taste like something processed, but actually satisfy my craving for fish. I made the risotto from leftover brown rice, adding diced yellow peppers, onions, dill, parmesan cheese and chicken broth. It was creamy and lowfat. The salad is also a Costco favorite: The Parisian. Love the dressing. My mom and I once ordered a whole box of the dressing we loved it so much. We had to take a break from it after that, but it's back on our list again. Time to get a little inspired about dinner again and make a little effort. Sometimes it's just going through the motions and other times it's a creative outlet. I'm ready for creative outlet. If you have any quick, easy ideas for dinner, send them my way. Would love to hear what's on your table for dinner. 
Have a great day!

  1. Maria,

    It was so great to meet you in person last night at the mother/daughter evening for our ward. You were just as lovely as I pictured you to be! Good luck with school and everything else you have going on!


I love your comments!
