Well I decided to make an easy dinner for the night. It’s not as great as yesterday’s dinner. Yesterday I had a nice Cesar salad with bacon bits, and a huge fillet of salmon, sprinkled with sea salt and dry basil. I cooked it for 35 min or so in aluminum foil. After about 20 minutes I could smell the salmon and my mouth was watering. It smelled so good. This salmon is nice and fatty so as it’s cooking in the foil the fats are trapped. Tonight on the other hand I simply made a DiGiorno pizza, which is as easy as popping it in the stove, setting the timer and walking away. Accept I didn’t walk away. I decided to make my picante salsa. It’s really easy and I picked up the recipe from my wife and friend Dan. I probably make it different from them, but the idea is the same. I take 4 plumb tomatoes, half a white onion, a green bell pepper, and cilantro. I dice everything up, mix in some sea salt (about 2 pinches) in a large Tupperware bowl and serve. Man that’s good stuff! The fresher the better. I’m a convert of tortilla chips too. Instead of Tostitos, now I buy the brand Santitas, which is a thicker corn chip with the perfect amount of salt. They don’t break as easy as Tostitos and taste better. So I had my pizza, which really isn’t DiGiorno’s best, and picante salsa and washed it down with a Guiness Draught in a bottle. Talk about good eats!!!
So the thoughts of happiness lie in the fact that my family will be finally coming out to Arizona. It’s been a long time since we’ve been together as a family longer than a weekend. I moved out to AZ back at the end of Sept and been away from my family since then. We’re having a little trouble getting May Flower to get a truck loaded with our effects. We were told that our stuff would be loaded this week, but the weeks already over so hopefully they’ll be available before Wednesday since that’s the day Kathy and the kids are flying out and Kathy needs to mark the boxes with labels indicating what goes in the apartment and what goes into storage. Nonetheless, I think things will work out.
So good food, good thoughts. Things are good! Now Wednesday just needs to get here!!!
