Hot Date Friday

Well its finally Friday, and I have a date tonight. Well as datey as you can get when you are The school is providing the fab service of babysitting for a few hours. As of this morning we are still quite unsure of where we are going to eat, but are positive that our night will end at the ole'Replay Lounge. This is where we will meet up with our other parent friends and commiserate our married lives, remembering our drunken youth which many of us spent there at the Replay.
Valentines Day yielded little in the way of flowers and other great items. I did get a whopping 4 chocolate sampler from DH and DS, I just love how generous DH is ...Cheapskate
His financial contribution to the holiday is dinner and paying for babysitting, you can bet I will be ordering something expensive.
The pickled eggs and beets are a super hit with DH, he loves them and told me they are super yummy!
Also I made some kick arse salmon the other day and wanted to share the recipe, because I never plan on making it any other way, this recipe rocks!

Super awesome salmon:
1-2lbs salmon cut into serving pieces
2T olive oil
2T melted butter
1T dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cracked fresh black pepper(I used a pepper blend)
3T lemon juice
1 tsp dried parsley
2T white wine (I used a reisling, its what I had)

Mix everything in a decent sized bowl. Making sure to crush the herbs with your fingers before you add. Place the salmon flesh-not skin side down into bowl, for about 5 min. Cook for 15-20 min at 400 degrees, in a non-stick or foil covered pan. Save any remaining marinade and add to rice before you cook it. Any leftover juice in the pan, after fish has been cooked should be added to rice also. This was super yummy and I rounded the meal off by cooking some zucchini and tomatoes with garlic in a skillet and adding some chopped feta cheese before serving. Talk about some happy eating....
