I just never get enough time during the week to actually make a great meal. I'm always down to trying new recipes. So when I stumbled on A Mama with Flavor through Faith's blog I pretty much felt like I hit the jackpot in inspiration! To top it off, Matt had to work late last night so I had an extra hour to prepare!!
I decided to make Salmon & Spinach in Phyllo with a side of asparagus and Lemon Rosemary Skillet Potatoes. Both recipes were super easy to follow... though I had some trouble finding the frozen Phyllo dough! (It's in the freezer with pastries...like pies and cream puffs).
I wanted to capture some pics while I worked on the Salmon Phyllo wrap... but do you know how hard it is to do that when your hands are caked with oil and spinach??! (lol...It got a little intense for awhile). Once Matt got home he helped me out and took some pics.
First is a picture of my apron in action! It was a wedding present...and I just love it!
While making the potatoes I decided to use our new electric skillet. I was so excited as I took it out of the box...only to find out it still had some assembling to do. That didn't make me happy. I had to bust out a Phillips head screwdriver in the middle of my dinner preparation. rude.
I was not amused.
My favorite part was collecting some Rosemary from my indoor herb garden! The plants have gotten so big since we first planted them! Super easy project!!
This is the meal all done and ready! The salmon was ok (this is coming from a person who does not east fish) I ate it all. The cream cheese inside of the phyllo really complimented the salmon. The potatoes were out of this world!!
Yay... Good Wife!
Yay...Stud Happy Hubby!
