For weeks now I have been trying to remember to have a graham cracker + nut butter sandwich for a snack. I keep forgetting! Or rather, “wet” snacks always appeal to me more: cereal, yogurt, smoothies, fruit. “Dry” snacks don’t seem to fill me up as much so I find them less appealing. But today I just wanted a little something small to tide me over and this graham + almond butter sandwich was perfect!
Another food trick I’ve been meaning to do for a while: poached salmon.
I thawed out two frozen wild Alaskan sockeye filets (that I buy at Whole Foods) and made a broth of water, lemon juice, floating lemons, 3 sprigs of fresh dill, butter and a pinch of salt. Turned the heat up and waited for the salmon to cook. I am not a poaching expert! I do think this would have been better with white wine involved : )
When the fish were done, we took them out and added in a bunch of green beans to steam in the liquid (I did have to add more liquid). The only problem with this method is that the beans soaked up too much of the bitter lemon peel – perhaps a bit of sweetener would have balanced that. Or just a new lemon.
‘Twas a delicious dinner though
Especially the corn I simply microwaved for 3 minutes and rubbed in butter and salt!!
Excited for some reading time!
