Home - is where I want to be / But I guess I'm already there /I come home -
she lifted up her wings /
Guess that this must be the place...

Broiled Salmon Fillet with Curried Chutney

Chutney is a strange word to say aloud, isn't it? Chut. Ney.

I had a thoroughly delightful birthday, with cake from my co-workers, gifts from my family, and a dinner that managed to be slightly special and good-tasting with making me crazy on a weeknight. We got wild Alaskan salmon, put it under the broiler for a few minutes while the sauce cooked down, and there it was. I actually closed my eyes to concentrate on the sparkling collision of sweet and spicy over the depth of the salmon itself. After supper we had the usual Youtube viewing (she's still stuck on penguins, but we've moved to Surf's Up instead of Happy Feet), played with LEGO for a while, and I had a nice chat with my mom.

Plus, I gave JJ extra cereal last night and he's still asleep!

It was yummy, but it's not my own recipe. Nor do I have room for 15 lbs of salmon in my freezer! :)
