This past Saturday we got out of drill early because of the family Christmas party. Because this is a rarity, LC and I didn’t know what to do with ourselves so I suggested we venture out to Sports Authority. Damage done:
New running shoes. Hubs and a friend of mine swore by their Zigs and I was in the market for new running shoes with lots of ankle support. These babies delivered. I ran 3 miles outside today free of ankle pain. Things are looking up and I think 2012 is my year for the Chicago marathon 🙂 I really love these shoes. They’re light in weight, yet offer a lot of support for my weak ankle. Win & win.
Mondays around here are normally meatless, but tonight I was craving fish. Inspired by How Sweet it Is, I created Gingersnap crusted salmon. Deliciousness.
Everytime I see gluten-free cookies at Trader Joe’s, I feel the need to purchase and try them. I’ve finally reached my cookie limit. The gingersnaps were my first purchase. Although they were really good, I could only eat so many of them. One day, I was browsing blogs & came across a recipe for gingersnap crusted salmon. A solution for too many gingersnaps.
Here’s how I made this awesome salmon. I beat two eggs in a bowl and dipped the salmon in them. I crushed up the rest of my gluten-free gingersnaps (about 10 cookies). Seasoned with Mrs. Dash, pepper and sea salt. Then, I baked the two salmon fillets at 400 for about 30 minutes. Served with rice & asparagus. Perfect Monday night dinner, and now I know what to do with those leftover cookies (a rare occurrence in our house).
I’m off to relax & watch Water for Elephants! I’ve been waiting since forever to see this movie! I loved the book so I’m hoping the movie doesn’t disappoint. Have a great night!
