Does anybody else think it should be Wednesday already? I’ve been up since 4am when Scott’s alarm went off to catch a 6 am flight. I couldn’t fall back to sleep, so I just got up. Maybe that’s why it feels like it should be Wednesday already. Solo parenting also makes the week go slower. You realize how much your partner does, when he/she is gone.
Enough of that babble, onto the food. I thought I would show you the quick and easy (not to mention healthy,) dinner we had last night. I tried Trader Joe’s salmon burgers for the first time. They are basically raw ground wild salmon, formed into a burger. We tossed them on the grill, and then topped with some leftover Greek Chopped Salad from the weekend. It was such a delicious meal. I highly recommend these burgers if you like salmon.
Salmon is a wonderful source of omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids can be beneficial for everything from decreasing triglycerides, to reducing inflammation, to helping in depression. It is recommended to get 2 or more servings of fish/seafood per week that are high in omega 3 fish oil. (examples are salmon, halibut, tuna, sardines, mackerel, herring) Have you had your omega 3’s today?
On the side we had something else from Trader Joe’s that I swear by; the whole wheat couscous. Love this for a quick side dish.
Two minutes in the microwave and it’s ready. I added a few sauteed mushrooms and some slivered almonds to dress it up.
(Please excuse the white bread buns, which of course is shunned upon in the blog world. We were using up leftovers from Ava’s “baby-que” birthday party. )
We needed a quick dinner last evening because I went to pick up my (early) birthday present.
Remember last week, when Ava got a new ride on her birthday?
Well, Mommy did too. Since quitting my job in pharmaceutical sales last fall to stay home with Ava, I’ve shared a car with Scott. It has worked pretty well since he works from home. That said, our busy weekend activities, and more activities with Ava during the week, have made us think that a second vehicle would come in handy. Last night, I finally got to pick up my new car!
(notice the little bow on the windshield)
Scott was trying to copy those Christmas commercials because I always joke when we see them that I never got a car for Christmas. All thoughts of a night of cooking were abandoned and I took her for a test drive.

Well, looks like I have a lot more on the to do list…
Do you eat 2 servings of fish per week, or do you use supplements to get your omega-3 fatty acids?
