144.6...Baked Dijon Salmon

I get really excited when I come up with new yummy salmon recipes. I had planned on making salmon last night but wasn’t sure what to do with it until this recipe for Baked Dijon Salmon from All Recipes popped into my inbox. It was a sign. I had to make it. So glad I did….it’s fabulous!

Definitely give this one a try!

So….I skipped dinner on Tuesday night. Rare, I know. I had eaten so much oven the long weekend that I wasn’t even hungry, if you can imagine that. Lol.

Breakfast yesterday:

After I took the kids to school, I went to spin class followed by a couple of appointments. Lunch was a Grilled Chicken Greek Salad at Marketplace Grill.

I took my son to two flag football practices (two separate teams!) and that was it. I whipped up Baked Dijon Salmon and a salad for dinner and called it a night.

Breakfast this morning:

After drop off, I went to Sculpt class. Then Costco, Target, dry cleaners, etc. Lunch was a turkey sandwich and a salad at home.

My son has flag football practice tonight as well. But that’s it fortunately!

How do you organize your recipes? I print out the recipes I want to try and organize them by type (appetizers, chicken dishes, pasta, dessert, etc.) in binders. The recipes I’ve tried go in another binder.

I bake my salmon with the garlic sauce from trader Joe's + fresh lemon juice and white wine. My toddler loves it this way. It's always the first thing she finishes off her plate on salmon night.
