As delightful as it is to spend a few days out of the kitchen while on vacation, coming home to a nice home cooked meal is always a treat. Liv Life and family took a week off with a whirlwind trip up the coast of California taking in possible college campuses, local farmers markets and touring my home city of San Francisco (complete with shopping on Union Square, Cable Cars, Alcatraz and a visit to the Orpheum to see Billy Elliot!). With nearly every minute packed to its fullest, we returned home somewhat exhausted, but filled with a week of wonderful memories.
Processing multiple memory cards of photos, a fairly quick meal was in order for our first night home and Cooking Light's Grilled Lime Marinated Salmon hit the spot from Daddy all the way down to the two little Maltese dogs. A simple marinade of soy and lime is enhanced with minced garlic, ginger and a dash of thyme bringing a light and flavorful piece of salmon to your table. Served with a side salad, rice and in our case a slice of San Francisco sourdough you have a meal fit for a weary traveler. Reviews of the trip coming soon!
