Sunday Feasting


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?

how nice!!!! that's just lovely! Have you ever tried baking the salmon individually wrapped in tin foil? An older lady (with much Canadian-British class) taught me how to do this and the salmon, unless it is severely over-baked, will be moist, flavourful and delicious! (here's a table setting when I did it years ago in Ottawa, but I have done it in NJ on many occasions: Wish you were closer, I would love to make it for you! :)
