There's a first time for everything!!

As many mothers do, I struggle with what to make for the kids, that is healthy (or healthy-ish) and still a crowd pleaser.  When I make something yummy and amazing, I take a picture and post it on Facebook.  This always generates lots of "When should I be over for dinner?" or "Where's mine?".  So rather than continuing to blow up my own page with pictures of food, I have decided to start a blog.

So Friday night, I decided to make fish for dinner.  I decided to NOT reach for the yellow or blue box full of fish tenders.  Instead I walked up to the fresh seafood counter, and asked the boys to help me choose some fish for dinner.  The winner?  SALMON!  Now, how do I cook fresh fish!?!

Knowing they wouldn't want to eat plain broiled fish like me.  I decided to try my hand at fish nuggets.  I mixed up some egg and milk in one bowl, and bread crumbs, corn meal, garlic powder, salt and pepper in another.  I dredged and crusted up those tasty little bites and pan fried them in a little olive oil.  Served these tasty bites up with some asparagus and scratch tarter sauce (dill relish and salad dressing).  The broiled portion of the meal also turned out perfect!  I rubbed down the remaining 1.5 pound salmon fillet with lemon, a sprinkle of salt, and some thyme, and tossed it under the broiler for just a couple minutes!  Slightly browned, flaky and juicy!  My only regret is that I didn't snap any pictures of this meal.

I can't wait to share MORE wins with you!  I promise as I get better at this whole blog thing, I'll get more pictures and TRY to get some actual recipes on here (instead of "a little of this and a little of that").

Here goes nothing.  Publishing my first blog....
