a totally blog-worthy dinner

At least in pictures.

How I managed this when I didn’t even leave school until after 5:30, I don’t know.

Lemony Kale Salad

Cedar-Plank Grilled Salmon with Mango-Kiwi Salsa

Whole-wheat Spaghetti with Mint Pesto (can’t remember where I found the recipe…)

(Actually, I do.  I assembled the mango-kiwi salsa the night before and the mint pesto was some I had in the freezer from earlier this summer.)

As we don’t have a grill at the moment, I had to broil the salmon.  Andrew loved it–I did it dry (no olive oil because I was lazy) with salt and pepper on top under the broiler from probably less than 8 minutes or so–it created a crust on the top and it was lovely!

Andrew didn’t love the salsa, so I didn’t keep the recipe, but it was pretty good.  I have leftover salsa, so I think I might mix it with some plain yogurt and use it to dip crackers or something.

The kale salad was yummy, and they give a couple variations on it (at least the magazine did), so I’m planning to try another one on Thursday with our Vegetarian Moussaka!
