Friday Night – Date Night

14 Jan

My Husband has been gone the past 4 days and is finally on his way home.  When he left on Tuesday morning at 4:00 am he was so kind to leave his head cold with me. All week I suffered with terrible sniffles and sneezes. I even had to stay home from work for 2 days.

4 days later I am feeling back to normal! It is Friday night and my honey is coming home. I rushed home from work stopped at the grocery store,  straightened up the house, changed the bedding, did the laundry, showered, vacuumed, and prepared dinner.

Dinner – What to make for dinner.  I threw the question out on twitter for some Salmon recipes and got a great one from Kate Knowles at
If you can make this you can make that

Salmon with white wine and Cherry tomatoes.


  • 1 portion of Salmon
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine ( I used Chardonnay)
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes
  • handful of black olives
  • Fresh Parsley
  • couple sprays of butter
  • Salt and Pepper

Here is what you are going to want to do:

  • Chop Onion in wedges and lay at bottom of tin foil
  • Lay Salmon on top
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Fold Sides to make a parcel
  • Drop in Cherry tomatoes, Olives, and Parsley
  • Pour in wine.
  • Fold shut

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.. Little less if you like it a little rare. Oh, I also make 2 baked potatoes and a beautiful Romaine salad.

As I wait for him to walk in the door I am enjoying a glass of wine, enjoying the smell of the scented candles, and singing along with David Gray. I love date night!

    Well, did he like the dinner and appreciate everything else? Some guys are so-o-o-o glad to get off the road and back home that they worship the ground you walk on. Some don’t care one way or another. Others would rather be travel all the time. Go figure!!!
