Today is Mike's birthday!! He opened his presents this morning at breakfast. The kids and I got him a pair of sandals, a red patriotic t-shirt, the newest Newsboys cd and Casting Crowns' "Altar and the Door" cd. For dinner, I made his favorites: salmon with asparagus and carrots. For dessert, I made him a strawberry pizza. He really enjoyed everything, especially dessert.
For the salmon, I combined a couple of recipes. I cut up a lime and lemon and squeezed the juice over the fish. I seasoned it with salt and pepper and topped it with lime slices, lemon slices and onion slices. Wrapping it in foil, I baked it for 25 minutes at 400 degrees. Mike and the kids gobbled it up.
Hannah did the asparagus for me. After she rinsed and snapped off the ends, I sprayed a pan covered in aluminum foil with cooking spray and laid out the asparagus. Hannah sprinkled it with salt and pepper after I sprayed it with cooking spray. We then broiled it for 10 minutes on 400 degrees. The kids also ate it up. It was rather good.
