Wednesday Eats and a recipe

Here is what we ate today...

Breakfast - Full fat greek yogurt with raw honey, a spoonful of coco powder, and blueberries.

Lunch - Leftover lentil soup. This just keeps getting better everyday!

Dinner - Oh. This dinner. It's one of those meals that you keep saying "mmmmm" under your breath as you take a bite. Rhett, Ella, and I just love this. Seth got to eat his pancakes as long as he put a piece of salmon on his tongue. He did, and he was so proud of himself! Starting on Monday of next week he will have to put the food on his tongue and then close his mouth. One step at a time, right?

I tore this out of a magazine a long time ago. I'm not even sure what magazine it's from.

Salmon with Lemon Butter and Mashed Broccoli and Potatoes

6-7 medium red skinned potatoes, diced
1 head broccoli, cut into small florets
1 stick butter
salt and pepper
3 or 4 wild alaskan salmon filets
1/2 bunch green onions (3 or 4), sliced
juice of 1/2 lemon

1. Preheat the oven to 350. In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with salted water. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until just tender, about 10 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the broccoli and cook for about 3 more minutes. Drain and mash with 2 tbsp butter, salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.

2. Season the salmon with salt and pepper, then arrange them in a single layer in a greased dish. Put them in the oven until they are cooked through. Mine took about 14 minutes.

3. In a small skillet, melt 6 tbsp butter over medium heat. Let it cook down a little bit until it starts to brown. Add the scallions, cook another minute. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice. Cook for another 30 seconds. Spoon the sauce over the fish (and the potatoes, if you dare).

4. Prepare for your husband to be drooling all over you after you serve this for dinner.

My Real Food Fridge

I've had a request from a reader to bare all and show my fridge. I took a picture today, just as it was.

Lots of Polyface eggs, raw goat milk kefir, Zukay's fermented salsa, Ezekiel sprouted english muffins, leftovers, lots of green, veggies, gluten free flours, Trader Joe's full fat greek yogurt, raw cheese, Body Ecology Diet Vitality drink mix, cod liver oil, raw butter. All the good stuff.
