Baked Salmon and a little Hangman


I was going to write an informative post on how salmon is so good for you but I got sidetracked yesterday.

See, we (as in the kids) got the day off from school because of icy roads. So this is how my day went.

2 hour school delay.  No biggie.

Correct that – school cancelled.  Still no biggie.

Made blueberry muffins for breakfast.  Yum!

Read my emails, checked my blog and website. Everything is in working order.

Treadmill time while watching Ace of Cakes.  Love that show!

Talked to my mom.  Lucky duck won $50 in our Basketball Club raffle!

My daughter’s prom dress arrived via UPS.  Had to have her try it on and oooh and aaah over her.  She looks so pretty!

My neighbor needed some help.  No problem, I love helping them.  They pay back with food and beverages.

Lunch had to be made.  Nothing fancy – just grilled cheese and/or peanut butter crackers.

Dinner was planned. Spaghetti and homemade meat balls.

Sorry (the board game) was played.  I won one game and lost the other.  My kids are ruthless!

Hangman was next.  Not sure it was a good thing to teach our youngest to spell. 

And then there were blogs to catch up on.  You need to check out Chef in Training’s Hot Ham and Cheese Recipe.  Oooh it looks so good!  And Enjoying the Small Things.  Kelle just has a way of writing that touches me every time I read her posts. 

And more Hangman.  Ugh!

By that time it was time to start thinking about dinner and getting the house cleaned up and doing the dishes all before Survivor came on at 7.  And once I sat down for the night, well, I was done for.


See – I didn’t have time to research why salmon is good for you but just take my word for it – it is.  And this recipe is not only good for you, it tastes good too.  Just serve it with some lemon juice squeezed on top or better yet, put some Garlic and Herb Butter on it.  That will impress the dinner guests.

Now who can guess this Hangman phrase?       _ a _ _ o _       i _       _ oo _       _ o _       _ ou. 

Baked Salmon

Salmon is one fish we usually have in the freezer. I normally purchase it in the package of individually sealed portions in the freezer section. Fresh salmon can easily be made this way too.

Yield: 4 - 6 people

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 8 - 12 minutes

Total Time: 20 - 25 minutes


• 6 salmon fillets, thawed
• Seasoning salt
• Pepper
• Onion powder
• Garlic powder


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Put thawed salmon fillets onto a jelly roll pan lined with either parchment paper or a nonstick mat.
3. Generously season with seasoning salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Just sprinkle it on.
4. Bake in the oven for 8 – 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Top off your salmon with some fresh lemon juice or some Garlic and Herb Butter. Tastes great with rice, potatoes and steamed veggies.

    Salmon IS good for you…but you have to be careful where the salmon is from. “Wild-caught Alaskan salmon” appears to be the best.

    Thanks for sharing your day!
