Once upon a time there was this great big tuna.
This tuna was SO BIG (and that's not even a fish tale), that it took over a year to eat our way through it (and that included giving may pounds of it away).
After that, tuna was on the list of Things That Someone Is Not Interested In Having For Dinner...
Peppercorns were crushed and pressed into the fish before cooking. I wasn't sure how the crushed pepper was going to work with salmon filets, but it worked. All these really needed was a short fry in a non-stick skillet with a little bit of oil. We had the salmon with some broccoli (yes, I grabbed it out of the freezer).
It was a perfectly easy and simple weeknight dinner.
Simple and easy is exactly what I need in my life right now now that I am back in professional certification classes again... Now that I am back to writing papers every week for school, all forms of writing - even post writing - are kind of stressing me out. I spend most of my work days trying to make my writing as succinct as possible. Writing papers for professors is the total opposite - they want me to take three pages to express something that I would normally write in three paragraphs.
I haven't had too much time to turn pages (unless that reading has to do with international trade), but here are a few recent reads:
On His Own Terms: A Life of Nelson Rockefeller by Richard Norton Smith - good read, but I just couldn't get through all 800 pages.
The Life Intended by Kristin Harmel - this one was a bit of a tear jerker, but a good read.
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo - I read this one twice. Some of it is a little over the top, but this book has come into my life at just the right time (i.e. pre-moving). It shifted my paradigm regarding the guilt of giving away things that still have usefulness. Bags of stuff have been flying out the house...
Winter Street by Elin Hildenbrand - light reading for a cold weekend.
