I didn’t know I had it in me, to predict the future and make it come true (sort of).

Yesterday I made one of my husband’s favorite dishes:  Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill.  There was extra sauce, so it went into a casserole dish to bake along with–great to put onto rice!

Here is my version of that recipe, which comes from

     1 LB. salmon fillets
     garlic powder
     1 1/2 C. mayonnaise or plain yogurt or a combo of each
     1/2 C. prepared mustard
     1/4 tsp. ground thyme
     1 tsp. dried oregano
     1/4 tsp. dried basil
     2 tsp. dried dill

     Put the salmon on a greased baking sheet or a 9 X 13 pan. 
     Sprinkle both sides of each fillet with salt, ground pepper, and garlic powder.
     Mix the rest of the ingredients together and spoon onto the top of the salmon.
     Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20-40 minutes (till the salmon is easily flaked
     with a fork).

At dinnertime as I removed everything from the oven, we remarked upon the fact that the casserole dish was dripping water; I’ve never seen such a thing before, but we think it’s because it had been baking on a rack right above the salmon and steam had collected on the outside.  We vaguely wondered if the dish itself was broken, and laughed because we have had it since our wedding, and probably you can now find these dishes in the antique stores.

I HAVE seen toys from my past in antique stores!

(Secretly in my head, I was praising myself for having taken such good care of the dishes all these years too)

Pride goes before a fall, and it fell right out of my hands!

  The yellow in the sauce is MUSTARD–lots of it.


The set of three is broken, and one of us got to eat dinner much later than the others.
