Quick and easy dinner — baked potato with microwaved lentils and goat cheese. If you’re really in a rush, you can get a plain baked potato from Wendy’s for a buck.

Ended up being way too much food and I gave half away.

I just made the best salmon marinade. Measurements are approximate:

- 1/4 c lite soy sauce (low sodium)
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- grated ginger
- black pepper
- cayenne pepper
- 2 Tbsp sorghum 
- tiny bit Penzy’s Northwoods Fire
- tiny bit garlic salt

Thaw fish and let marinade about 10-15 min. Cook at 375 for 18 minutes (or fish is 145). Spoon sauce over fish while cooking every 5 minutes — it gets thicker as it cooks.

The best way to keep fresh ginger around is to just wrap it in plastic and freeze it. To use, grate with a little cheese grater. Keeps forever.

I learned a magical way to cook potatoes from the Internet. They’re like half baked potato, half potato chip. Brush with oil or butter, season and cook at 425 for about 45 min or so.

Mmmmm biscuits & sausage gravy + frittata (green garlic, sausage, scallions and a pound of cheese). I’m sure it’s all Paleo vegan.

Oh wow — Lemon rice and fish stew. Husband says: “I feel all healthy inside!”

Cook 3/4 c jasmine rice. When it is done, stir in the juice from one lemon.

In large skillet, Sauté green garlic and celery in a little butter (you could use leeks or green onions or whatever). Add in 3 cups chicken broth, 3 Tbsp sugars and pinch or two of kosher salt. Simmer a bit, then stir in rice.

Sink fish filets into broth and rice mixture. Simmer until cooked through. I used 2 frozen talapia filets, took about 15 min.

Serve topped with mint or other fresh herb.

Braised celery with jowel bacon, sausage, onions and salsa-style fire roasted tomatoes; served on grits.

I was craving polenta. So rich that my plate is just a dessert-sized plate.

I’ve managed to eat everything in the kitchen today and am sure the scales will be up tomorrow. :-)
