First things first. It really needs to be said that I really heart when people google search the phrases “too legit to quit” and “cereal hoarder” to get to my blog. I doubt there are two phrases able to describe me any better.
That has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of this post. I just wanted to say it.
Last night, my roommate and I made a journey over to Megan’s house for one of our regular “Family Dinners“. We started them late last summer and it’s nice to get together every other month or so to catch up somewhere other than a noisy bar on a Saturday night.
In other words, we’re like old women. I’m surprised we haven’t also set up a quilting circle yet.
It’s just a matter of time.
But that’s neither here nor there.
Why I mention our latest get together is this-
Megan was teaching me how to prepare salmon. As you all probably know (or you may not- try not to beat yourself up about it), I’m straight up terrified of the whole cooking fish thing. Even if it’s one of my favorite things to eat. So as a way to complete my new years resolution, Megan agreed to teach me her ways.Dun dun dunnnnn…..
Check out that shaking action. It’s all in the wrist.
Actually, she did make it seem easier than I had worked it up to be in my head. Keep the seasoning simple. Broil for 6-8 minutes. Check to see if it flakes. Pair with brown rice and broccoli.Done and done and done.
Does this mean I actually have to make it next time? Crap.
We skipped dessert, but had a 20-minute conversation about favorite candy from our childhood and the holidays. Does that count?
*Mine was 100 Grand and robin eggs (Easter), by the way.
Because I know you were wondering.
Anyway, I’ve got work to do and a snowstorm to avoid, so I shall leave you now with a big HAPPY FRIDAY!
