A day in the life.....



The first of the year's fresh salmon is in! Rob picked up a beautiful piece from Longliner on Granvile Island for me to cook for dinner. I love salmon so I always cook it as simply as possible and Rob loves the crispy skin on salmon, so I always sear the skin side. My technique is not for the squeamish though ~ I happen to prefer my salmon medium rare.
Season Salmon with salt. Place skin side down in a cast iron pan over medium high heat. After 3 minutes, flip, cook one minute on the flesh side. Serve. This is what the inside of my salmon looks like.

Served with steamed broccoli and herbed quinoa.

I am off today (!!) so Rob and I heading out for a picnic at the beach. I'll try not to get too sunburned...

Spring meals

Although I don't show up much here on my blog, I do still cook and eat. This gym thing and facebook obsession is seriously eating into my blogging time though. Rob recently threw together this simple supper which was oh so good and just tasted like spring on the west coast to me.

What's in Your fridge

Sam just opened her fridge door and took a snap. So did I. Of note, the lack of any actual food except for eggs. Every condiment known to man.
