Picture Dump

Dooby Doooo... Nothing much happening here... so you get a picture dump.

Last night I made salmon.
Sorry, I only have a raw picture. I was too hungry when it was done, and devoured without snapping a pic first!  Trust me, it came out of the oven just as beautiful as it went in. 
With the salmon, we had some cucumbers.. And for dessert? 
A bowl of strawberries & whipped cream. 

The night before, I had nothing particularly fresh in the house to cook, so I did a sweep of the fridge, and pulled everything I found out, and mixed it together. 
This is what I ended up with..

 Ok, it looks gnarly. Bear with me.  I took some chicken breasts, plopped them in a casserole dish, with their juices. Drizzled on some balsamic vinegar, olive oil, sprinkle of salt & pepper. Then I covered them in a layer of sweet onions, then covered the whole thing in slices of smoked gruyere cheese. Baked the whole business for a little bit. It came out delicious! 
With the chick, came some steamed broccoli, and some glazed carrots. 
I love these carrots. My mom always made them.  Joel isn't a huge carrot fan, but he LOVES these. His exact words were "THESE ARE BOTH HEAVENLY AND DELECTABLE" 
No lie. 

For dessert?  Oranges! I had two different kinds of oranges. Look at the color difference!

that salmon looks incredible. but, i do not like cooked carrots unless they are in soup/stew.

also my security word is "flatente" which reminds me of "flatulence"
