And Tuesday is done! Well at least the long part of Tuesday is done (work!) and the fun part of Tuesday starts, I’m heading out to meet up with my two good friends for dinner. Restaurant is to be determined but I’ll be sure to post a good (or bad) review tomorrow!

Last night, I made my go-to meal for the start of the week: salmon, sweet potato, and asparagus.

got all my ducks in a row with this meal!

I used a new glaze for my salmon and it was really yummy, if you like mustard

  • 1 TB dijon mustard
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • sprinkle of paprika

Mix together and rub on the salmon. Bake salmon, asparagus, and sweet potato on 425 for 22 minutes.

Note: I pierce and microwave my sweet potatoes for 3 mins each side to prep them for the oven and to just speed up the whole dinner process. Needless to say, I still didn’t eat til 9:15 PM last night! oh well!

slice open the SP to let the steam out
