Roasted Salmon and Veggies

My back has been bothering me for months.  I told you on the previous post that I was finally on muscle relaxers.  Can we just have a moment of silence to praise the muscle relaxer?  Today I experienced my very first “Deep Tissue Massage.”  This massage is not a ‘whirly bird feel good’ experience.  This is a hang on,  grit your teeth and power through it experience.  My masseuse was wonderful!  She backed off when I grunted but kept the pressure strong and steady. I also learned it is a pinched nerve in my neck that is the culprit.  I feel better since the massage.  I could also be feeling better because I treated myself to a cupcake for being such a brave girl during the massage and let us not forget…..muscle relaxers! I should be back to my old tricks soon.

Roasted Chicken Thighs and Potatoes

Don’t you love one pan dinners?  Just put everything on a sheet pan, shove it in the oven, pull it out a little later and….dinner!  I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t like roasted chicken.  I had some chicken thighs in the freezer and potatoes in the pantry.  It was pretty obvious what I was going to put in front of Sir Streusel for dinner.  I whisked up some dressing to toss the chicken and potatoes with to make it even more spectacular.  Threw some rosemary, my favorite herb, on the pan and shoved that baby in the oven. 40 minutes later, Sir Streusel was grunting and licking his fingers.  WIN!!  Join me in the love of sheet pan dinners and we all WIN!

Roasted Veggie Galette

My favorite way to eat vegetables is to roast them.  I love the little bit of crispness that comes for tossing them in olive oil, seasoning them to taste, and letting Edna bring them to perfection.  This could easily be a side or a main dish.  My challenge is not eating all the veggies right off the baking sheet when Edna is done roasting.  I love this cookbook.  The author is Pam Anderson.  No, not THAT Pam Anderson.  Not the slow jog in a thigh high cut red bathing suit Pam Anderson.  This Pam Anderson is a wonderful cook and author.  This particular cookbook gives so many options to make dishes your own.  You know, like you hear on “American Idol”?  How many times have you heard the judges say, “Make the song your own”???  Well, Pam gives you options for everything to tailor your meals to your taste.  Try this galette.  It won’t disappoint.  It might even make you want to put on a thigh high red bathing suit and run a slow jog on the beach.  Yea, right.

Enjoy!!!! Continue reading Roasted Veggie Galette
