One home cooked meal this week and that's because we are pretty much quarantined upstairs. All the carpet is gone downstairs and it is quite dusty, so the kitchen is only in use for quick things.

I did get to make some baked salmon...

I merged this recipe with the olive tapenade in this post and this is what came up. It was good, but I don't think it fit our taste palate. We like salmon with spice and though the flavors were good, they were just too mild for us. It did give me a chance to try baking salmon in foil, but for me this came out dryer than when we grill it. I prefer salmon grilled. 

For veggies we had roasted brussels sprouts...

Ben made it with a little bit of lemon juice, zest, garlic, salt, and pepper. This combo always wins with us. Here's a recipe you might want to try. Brussels sprouts are really good! Really!!!

I have a feeling there won't be much cooking again next week, but I will still plan, just in case. 

Week 4/7 - 4/11
Monday: Seafood Medley Pasta
Tuesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs
Wednesday: Oven Baked Taquitos
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Pizza


  1. I'm really loving brussels sprouts right now! I like them stir fried with a little olive oil, salt & pepper, and grated parmesan cheese. I also think they're delicious in soy sauce with just a pinch of brown sugar. I'll have to try your lemon zest version.

  2. I am obsessed with Brussels Sprouts. I brown them in a pan with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, garlic salt and pepper to taste... Amamzing!!!

  3. my daughter actually turned me on to brussels sprouts. they gave them to her in daycare (she was 4 at the time) and she came home and she said she loved them and we've been eating them ever since.

  4. We always use this recipe (bottom) for brussels spouts, and LOVE it! Yours sounds pretty good too - we'll have to try it sometime! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love roasted Brussel's Sprouts...I call them muscle sprouts when we have them for dinner. ~Deirdre

  6. We are a big roasted broccoli and cauliflower family. Olive oil, salt and pepper and some sliced garlic and you've got a can add lemon juice and zest too but that tastes better on the broccoli. My 3.5 year old has always loved this!
