I started a new job in early May, and I have not had much time for blogging since. This weekend, though, Scott is out of town and I’m on my own. I decided to cook myself something nice.

We had some frozen salmon in the freezer, so I decided to try something I haven’t done before — cooking it on a cedar plank. A 400 degree oven, a little garlic and honey for a glaze, and 15 minutes later, the salmon was tasty and cooked just how I like it: still slightly raw in the middle.

I picked up a few mushrooms as well, and did them very simply. A hot pan with a dash of olive oil,cook until they’re almost done, then deglaze with white wine, and finish with a pat of butter.
