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.
In the oven went parsnip fries and potato wedges.
While I was preparing supper I decided since it is Friday I would have a little glass of vino.
I 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!
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!
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!
