It was really cool learning how to fix brakes, rotors, and callipers on a truck! There were some pretty stressful moments where one thing would go wrong after another, but in 4 hours, 3 trips to Auto Zone, and $200 bucks later, we were complete! Yay for no squeaks and anchors!
In return for all my hard work and labor :P Just kidding, we went to Sam's Boat to enjoy loads of crawfish and
|YAY FOR CRAWFISH!|
Lemon Pepper Salmon
1lb Salmon (we only had about 3/4 lb so 1 lb is what I recommend)
1 tablespoon lemon pepper seasoning
1 tablespoon of basil garlic seasoning (this added a great kick to it!)
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Take the thawed salmon and place on foil on a baking sheet (the juices will stay in the foil and make the salmon 10x juicier!) I first cut a lemon in half, and used one half to juice up the salmon and then added and rubbed on the seasonings. While the oven was pre-heating I let it marinate a bit. I also started cooking the chicken on the skillet 6 minutes each side after marinating also in some lemon pepper seasoning. When the oven was pre-heated, I placed the salmon in the oven and baked for 10 minutes per inch, and I guestimated this to about 1.5 inch, so it was about 15 minutes before it was ready. I had some leftover blackbeans and broccoli, so heated the black beans, and placed the broccolli in the oven underneath the salmon for the 15 minutes as well to roast them a bit with some salt and pepper. Also for my last side, I had some scampi flavored fettucini noodles in the pantry, so I threw those in too (takes about 7 minutes to cook), and rounded out my meal!
Once finished, I made our plates and we sat down to watch some movies!
|We were in Salmon Heaven :) Yummm!|

We had some movies we rented from blockbuster that we enjoyed while eating. We rented Seven Pounds with Will Smith and also District 9. I honestly thought both movies were very enjoyable. District 9 was pretty crazy and was a pretty suspensful action-sci fi-movie that I really liked! Seven Pounds was a definite win. It was a lot of guessing of what was going on through out the movie, but it definitely kept me at the edge of my seat, and by the end, I had tears in my eyes and was so wrapped up in it - I would totally see it again. And maybe again. :) I even had a girlfriend borrow it today to enjoy it as well! I would do thorough reviews - but I'll just say - both of these are worth seeing IF you haven't already, they are a little older.
Tonight we are enjoying some pulled pork tacos, and are catching up on some relaxation time. I will post the recipe for the pulled pork tacos tomorrow!
I also just wanted to give some love to my man, who spent most his day off yesterday completely gutting our home, doing laundry, getting a bed frame (finally!) on our bed, and doing so much housework (and dishes!!!)! I am so grateful to have such a caring, sweet, fun guy who cares so much about me - just like I do for him. He's so amazing!! :-) XOX
Just had to get that out :) Enjoy your night! Thanks for reading!
