I think Buddy’s reaction pretty much sums up the way I feel about these bad boys:
Dried apricots: guess what? I love you , I love you, I loooove you!! Seriously, I could have eaten this entire bag – they’re like candy, I tell ya’!
I munched on a few way too many of these suckers as I was cooking dinner tonight and, as a result, wasn’t very hungry for my luscious entree. I savored it anyway because it tasted so.dang.GOOD! – Teriyaki Salmon with Fried Rice!
Take two salmon filets and marinate in teriyaki sauce for 10 minutes (make your own by combining 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/2 cup mirin & 2 T sugar.)
Sauté your filets in some non-stick spray in a skillet… (skin side down first, so you can easily peel it off when you flip!)
and serve over fried rice made with brown rice, veggies & an egg.
OMG NO WORDS! This was seriously one of the best – and easiest – dinners I’ve made in a long time.
These far east flavors are so delicious, and - I repeat – so incredibly easy to whip up! So easy, in fact, a caveman could do it! (That will make more sense in a second…)
Seriously, who needs to go out to a restaurant when you can make dishes that taste this good in the privacy of your own home?
YURM! I want more…
In other news, tonight I’m staying in and watching Year 1 (caveman reference) with Jack Black and Michael Cera.
These two are so hilarious that I started laughing out loud as I picked the movie out at the Red Box (true story.)
I’m also going to attempt to finish up my book The Kite Runner – awesome story!
When eating a saucy entree with rice, do you prefer to mix your rice and entree, or keep things separate?
I like to keep things separate. That way if there’s too much sauce on the entree, I don’t muck up my rice with goopy sauce. Ya heard?
