Cinnamon-Chilli

by Sheri on July 16, 2010

I kept my promise and made the salmon for supper tonight.  I rubbed it liberally with a awesome Cinnamon Chilli Rub we got from Silk Road Spice Merchant.

P1050196 This stuff tastes great!

In the oven went parsnip fries and potato wedges.

IMG_0625 I seasoned the parsnip fries with Spike and the potato wedges with Lowery’s seasoning salt plus a little fresh ground pepper.

IMG_0632 I grilled the salmon in my grill pan.  I love this pan!

While I was preparing supper I decided since it is Friday I would have a little glass of vino.

IMG_0626I noticed I had just a little bit left in the bottle that was sitting on the counter.  This is my fav cheap wine that I buy called Copper Moon Shiraz.  It is $8.99 for a bottle and taste pretty darn good!  Unfortunately it had been sitting a little too long on the counter and it did not taste very  good at all.  I had to dump it :(

But alas I had another bottle on my wine rack that I could crack into!

IMG_0631 The last time I went to the liquor store this one was on sale so I picked it up.  This particular wine is unoaked and therefore does not have the oaky flavour.  It is not bad but I think I like a little bit of oak in my red wine.  The hubs was not a fan of this one.  He likes oak the oakery the better for him.

Supper turned out great!

IMG_0648 The salmon turned out moist and very flavourful with the rub.

IMG_0645 I love the crust the rub gives the salmon on the outside it tastes so good.  But I forgot all about the asparagus that I had bought to have with it…I was sad.  I will have to grill it up this weekend sometime instead.

This was the first time I had tried parsnip fries and I really liked them!  I will be making these again for sure.  I think I am going to have to try them with nut butter.

Just before supper I also got a package!  I love getting packages!

I was kindly sent two Kidz Cali Bowls.  So keep watch in the next few days for the review.

Mmmmm…I think J wants to try it now.

Tomorrow we are going to a Stampede Breakfast!  We are having one just up the street from our house.  So we will get dressed up in our cowboy duds take a walk there and stuff our faces with pancakes and walk back home..perfect!  This will be J’s first Stampede Breakfast…I see picture taking opportunities ;)

Tonight is movie night with the hubs.  We are going to watch The Bounty Hunter and maybe I will pour myself another glass of wine!

Nighty…night!
