I think we’re almost unpacked! It seems to be taking forever but at least the kitchen is done. So glad to have this nice big kitchen to enjoy my cooking my adventures in. It feels so good to spread out and really dig into my recipes and such. With the days getting shorter and the temps getting colder, I seem to be reaching into the Comfort Food recipe arsenal. This one was no exception. We love salmon in our house and also spinach. I think adding fresh spinach to recipes gives it such delcious flavor and face it, it’s good for you too!
Aside from moving, we have the addition of three dogs. It has messed up our schedule somewhat, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re settling into a routine, but in teh meantime it is taking up extra time. That’s why meals need to be simpler to make right now but without sacrificing delicious flavor and nutrition. Agree? So, after a rigorous day of unpacking and hubby putting in a doggy door, he was rewarded with a delicous and nutritious baked salmon dinner.

If you haven’t already noticed, I have not unpacked my good camera so my pictures are not up to my standards. I had to use my iPhone 4 to take these since my mid-range camera was left in California in October. Hubby will pick it up on his next trip there and this weekend I’ll find my good one! Even if the picture is subpar, the salmon dinner was delicious.
