Recipe Monday: Weekend Food!

Hello! We had a great weekend, finally settled in our new home enough to do some cooking! I made salmon on Saturday night- nothing fancy there but here is how I do it: I just use the wild frozen salmon from Costco (pull it out of the freezer in the morning to thaw), Preheat oven to 350, rinse it and place it on a foiled baking sheet, shake some olive oil on it with whatever seasoning I have (usually I have salmon seasoning you can get at any groc, today I only had the no-salt seasoning from Costco available), rub that on and bake for 20 minutes. At the 20 minute mark I check the center of the thickest piece- if it is too "shiny" I bake it for another 5-10 minutes. Thats it- I made some veggies and we were good. (Here is another great Salmon recipe from my friend Mindy) Here is the yummy part...we had some left over so I put it in the fridge and made these little yummies today!

{I wish I would have had yummy gourmet crackers, but I just used Ritz crackers and Triscuit Thin Crisps (my absolute favorite cracker- no sugar or anything yucky and they are delish!) and put a little cream cheese and salmon (warmed up) on some, a little hummus and salmon on some and a little of the horseradish hummus from Trader Joe's with salmon on the rest! They were DELIGHTFUL...and simple- Ellie even loved it (cant say the same for Izzy, but she really only likes grilled cheese and cheese pizza, so no surprise!}

{Another little fun thing I have been making that is SO simple is this "banana boat"- I just take a banana, slice it down the middle and put some natural peanut butter between the two pieces, then put it in the freezer for a little bit (or you can serve it as is) and the girls are "nuts" for it! I have also added little chocolate chips in the peanut butter layer for a dessert.}


{Not beautiful...but yummy!}

{Finally, we were so pumped to use our new grill this weekend! My man has been without his own grill for 3.5 years and he was a happy guy being outside grillin' this weekend! Here is my little Instagram shot I snagged while he was out there- just a man and a beer and his grill looking at his fresh cut lawn..Ahhh! We grilled hamburgers and I added some jalapeno sour cream dip, hamburger seasoning and an egg to the meat before grilling- it was awesome!}

I realize that there is nothing earth shattering here- but in case it gives someone some new inspiration...there you go! Have a fabulous week- cant believe it is September this week! Time flies when you are having fun!
