Salmon, naan and LOST

Happy Wednesday everyone! I have to make this quick because Danny is being a little persistent about watching LOST. We would have watched it last night, but because I am a HUGE grandma I got up at 5 am to workout, I fell asleep at (or....slightly...before...) 9 p.m. 

So the countdown continues with 7 school days left until February vacation. I can't wait to bake and cook and read blogs for at least one of the five days I have off. Sometimes I wonder how the rest of the blog world finds the time to write their own blogs and read and comment on so many others. There just isn't enough time in the day to do all the things I want to do. Anyway, enough complaining.

This morning I got up and did No More Trouble Zones (Jillian Michaels). A quick, intense 40 minute circuit weight workout. The workout is pretty short, but I think it's the sitting in front of the TODAY show at 7 am that makes me almost late for work everyday.  (Good thing Danny wiped off my car today, otherwise I really would have been late.)

After work I went to the gym and did 40 minutes on the Cybex machine, which is kind of like an elliptical. I did one of the hill programs and watched Ellen at the same time. Does anyone else laugh out loud at the gym? Do people stare at you? I just can't help it sometimes!

For dinner I made some butternut squash fries, salmon, whole wheat naan and some veges. Danny says the whole wheat naan is the food of the year. I used 1/2 spelt flour this time, and I think it made the naan even better.

I could eat this all day...

For the salmon, I really just threw it all together. I put the salmon in a glass pyrex and basically poured 1 can diced tomatoes, balsamic, oregano, parsley, sea salt and pepper over it. I let it cook for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. I let the salmon cook at the same time the butternut squash fries cooked. (I put the butternut squash in for about 45 minutes.)

Okay, I am off to watch LOST. Did anyone else watch it??
