Hump Day Playlist
Happy Hump Day, hahahahahahaha! This Wednesday isn’t to terrible around here, I actually got some sleep last night so that was a win in my book. Anyway all week I’ve been putting together (taking screen shots on my phone) a list of songs that really brighten up my day and would be really good for a “surviving” Wednesday playlist. Hope you enjoy!
Thank goodness for the “Feelin Good in the 90’s” station on Songza! Looking for more great songs for today? Check out this post—-> 5 songs for your hump day!
Fish is by far one of the easiest, least labor intensive foods to make ever. I even feel kind of weird posting a fish “recipe” because it is that easy. Literally just top it with any combination of spices that appeals to you, wrap in tin foil, and bake for 25-30 minutes if thawed or 45-50 minutes if frozen. Pair it with some steamed vegetables (I usually buy the kind from Trader Joe’s which are pre prepped so all I have to do is microwave them) and that’s it. We weren’t that hungry the night I made this, but if I think we need a little more I’ll put some quinoa on while the fish cooks (or if its a lazy night I’ll use the pre-cooked brown rice or quinoa from Costco.) Another option is if your fish is frozen and cooking for 45 minutes, that’s the perfect amount of time to throw a few sweet potatoes in the oven. However, since it is a meatless day in Catholic world, I thought I’d post one of my favorite salmon “recipes” anyway!
- Two pieces of salmon 4-6 ounces
- 1 Jalapeño, seeded, deveined, finely chopped
- 1 green onions
- 2T chopped onions
- 2T minced garlic
- Sprinkle taco seasoning
- Sprinkle red chili pepper flakes
- Sauce: 1/4 cup salsa, 2T plain non fat yogurt or sour cream and 1/4 avocado
- Preheat oven to 350F, evenly spread toppings across two pieces of salmon.
- Fold edges of aluminum foil together creating a steaming pouch.
3. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes if thawed or 45-50 minutes if frozen. Meanwhile make the sauce by chopping up a bit of avocado and combining with salsa and plain greek yogurt (or sour cream).
4. Salmon is done when it flakes easily. Plate the salmon and top each piece with half the sauce.

Questions of the day:
Are you giving up anything for lent?
Paul and I gave up eating out when it is just us (so we can still accept dinner invites from friends and family.) I’m also all about the Sunday rule where you get to cheat, Paul hates that one and thinks it’s ridiculous…… thoughts? (Rationale for 40 Days of Lent.)
