The Fish Makes the Dish

The leftover trout I included in my lunchtime salad simply made the meal.


The flaky fish added so much flavor to the salad.

Pretty Colors

I only wish I had more fish to include in the salad because every bite I took without fish made me sad.

Along with the trout, my salad included:

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini

Initially I was going to make myself a simple fish sandwich and include a small salad on the side, but as I prepared the salad, it grew and grew and before I knew it, I had a whole meal on my hands.

Along with the salad, I enjoyed an apple for a lil’ sweetness.

Cool 'n' Crisp

Tuesday's Lunch

Sadie was especially intrigued by the fishy smell as I packed my lunch this morning…

Lickin' Her Chops


Tonight we’re having an extra-special guest spend the night: My mama!

My mom is coming in town for the evening to help break up her drive to Jacksonville where she has an appointment at the Mayo Clinic early tomorrow morning.

After work, my mom and I are planning on heading to the bridal boutique to finalize the bridesmaid dresses now that Ryan is fully onboard with the color.

We’ll be dining in this evening, and Ryan has agreed to work the grill and make us dinner while I prepare the sides.

Should be a fun night!
