Dinner and Love
Eating, for me, is one of the most important things in life. Not eating for nourishment sake, but for the sake of enjoyment, love, fellowship, community.
Almost every night we cook, laugh, eat, love. Sometimes it is just the two of us, many times there are great friends and wonderful conversations.
What I want to make perfectly clear, is that it is less about what is on the plate, than who is sitting next to you. Take away Chinese food, Mac n' Cheese, or a five course feast, whatever it is, do it with love, eat it with love. Enjoy.
Forget about all of the things that have to be done first thing in the morning, forget about the crabby co-worker or upset customer. Remember, that food is meant to be enjoyed.
So, what is for dinner tonight?
We had yummy salmon with fresh green beans. Usually, I prefer the salmon on the grill. But tonight is was just easier to pop it in the oven. Still tasty.
Next time you fix salmon try this.
Mix together, soy sauce, sesame seed oil, fresh ground black pepper, white pepper, wasabi paste and chopped garlic. Let the salmon marinate for at least 15 minutes, but not longer than 45 minutes. Throw it on the grill and eat!
How do you like your fish?
