Salmon Dinner

You will all find out my Bestie Foodie Buddy (but not in a creepy stalker way) Is Aggie of Aggie's Kitchen. She held my hand through my catering Michael and Michelle's wedding and that makes her good people in my book. We seem to have the same attitude towards cooking and food in general. But don't ask me to explain, can't verbalize it, just feel it.
Hmmm, me + blog = good idea?
But, I digress. K, she adapted this from Alton (cut back on the sugar a bit) and posted it along with a great salad recipe. It looked so good that I just made the whole thing. She used a citrus balsamic vinaigrette in the dressing which I didn't have so I substituted black cherry balsamic. Also, I didn't have water cress and arugula so I used the butter lettuce I had and tossed in some toasted pecans for good measure. I guess my point is, check out some of these great recipes you see and don't be intimidated. Substitute things you have (you probably like those flavors profiles if they're in your pantry) and go for it! Worse comes to worse, call Dominos.
Oh, and then she told me to serve the leftovers in a sandwich with wasabi aioli.
So I did.
Next I learn how to make aioli AND how to make the underlining that just appeared to go away.


  1. Oh Merry, you are totally putting a smile on my face!!!

  2. I will tell you, I am all about substitutions! You nailed it! :) oh your sandwich looks so good...and is that Israeli couscous??

  3. I'm cracking up about the underlining!!!! you will soon see that blogger sometimes has a mind of its own! comes along with being a makes ya crazy! :)
