Today was my brother-in-law's namesday, so we had his family and my mother-in-law over for dinner. I baked some salmon and sweet potatoes and made a huge tossed salad. It was the first time I baked salmon (normally I used a skillet and cook it on the stove top) and I have to say that it was the simplest and best preparation of fish I have ever made. I followed the cooking instructions I found on Food Network (though I used soy sauce, black pepper, and a bit of brown sugar to season it). The fish was finished all at once rather than in batches and it was all cooked perfectly evenly. Sugar Plum made a beautiful vegan chocolate cake for dessert. It tasted so delicious and was a huge hit with everyone. Happily there is a smidge left to enjoy with tea tomorrow.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner?
