Sauteed Ginger and Garlic Salmon

Happy Friday Lovelies! I completely forgot that today was Good Friday and that a lot of companies have it off.  I did have work but came in to find out we were getting out early…woo hoo!  Perfect, especially since I’m going to Boston for the weekend and leaving tonight.  I still can’t believe it’s been one year since the last Boston Marathon.

Andy and I are running the B.A.A. 5k with two of my bestest friends tomorrow morning.  I am really looking forward to running around the Boston Common and Back Bay. It’s one of the things I miss most about living there. The race starts at 8AM though, so looks like a mellow evening is in store for tonight.

Okay, food talk time!

I’ve really been craving seafood lately.  It’s a great lighter option for the Spring time.  I was really feeling my spring fever coming on last week and then BAM it’s freezing again.  Such a tease that Mother Nature is.

When we did get a glimpse of spring a couple of weeks ago though I made this delicious Sauteed Ginger and Garlic Salmon dish for one.  Thanks to the wonderful man behind the fish counter at Whole Foods for the inspiration.  He had shown me a marinade to saute it with.  It sounded yummy, but of course had way too many ingredients in it that I couldn’t pronounce, so I made my own!

Invoking Your Spring Fever

Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  I sure did!  It was an absolutely gorgeous weekend here in Connecticut.  I think Spring is finally here…and here to stay.  Wahoo!

People may complain about New England for four months out of the year, hate on the cold weather, and curse every time it snows past Christmas but without it, we would not have what we all like to call Spring Fever.

You know that feeling when you wake up to hear the birds chirping and the sun is peeking through your bedroom windows? You can’t help but smile as you step outside and breathe in the warm air.  You walk past store fronts with their doors wide open, everyone is running all of a sudden, and all you want to do is Yelp restaurants with a patio or roof deck. That’s what Spring Fever is like for me.

Here’s a few other ways I’ve been invoking my inner Spring Fever – feel free to take notes!

Hitting some golf balls (or attempting to and then sun bathing while the bf does).
