A Heads-Up & A Mouthful.


As I write this, I'm in my robe
sitting on the couch & drinking coffee,
but in about 3 hours... 
my summer explodes with business.

I feel like I need to give you a heads up
so that you will understand my sporadic whereabouts
that I'll be blogging, tweeting & *instagramming about this summer.

Tonight, we are going to see Coldplay here in London,
 we will celebrate the Jubilee this weekend,
have brunch with Helena on Monday,
leave for Oxford for Tyler to lecture (stud!),
fly out to Edinburgh on Tuesday,
travel up to the Isle of Skye Thursday,
meet Megan for dinner on Sunday in Glasgow,
take the night train to London,
directly board a flight to Florida Monday morning,
spend a week on the beach,
re-cross the Atlantic & land in Milano,
lead a group up from there to Paris,
cross the channel & host them in London,
spend a girls weekend in Rome,
attend the Olympics,
and fly back to Oklahoma for Tyler's sister's wedding,
celebrate my birthday in Dallas,
fly back to London.

By then my friends,
it will mid-August.

Are you ready for this insanity?

Yeah?

That's awesome,
because I'm not so sure I am.

Obviously, I'm very excited...
 but, man, it's gonna be busy.

On a more delicious note,
this salmon recipe will be your new favorite thing.

It's my go-to when I don't know what to cook,
or when I want to be healthy,
or when I want to look like a good cook in front of my friends...
or, yeah, well you get the idea: it's great for everything.

I can also shop for it without having the recipe on me because it's so simple.

I really think you're going to like it...
because I like it and we have everything in common, right?

Totally.


HONEY PECAN SALMON
serves 2 | original recipe here




2 salmon fillets (England is so spoiled with cheap & fresh Scottish salmon.)
1/4 cup of breadcrumbs 
1/4 chopped pecans
2 tablespoons of mustard
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of melted butter

1. Preheat your oven to 425F | 210C.
2. Mix breadcrumbs, pecans, honey, mustard & butter together.
3. Evenly spread the chunky mixture on top of the salmon fillets.
4. Place the salmon in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until the topping is golden brown (or darker in some areas because you got distracted.)
5. Take them out. Pat yourself on the back for making something amazing. Eat up!



This salmon goes great with almost anything fresh & light.

Asparagus, steamed broccoli, mashed sweet potatoes, a green salad...
you really can't go wrong with finding a good compliment for it.

You're gonna love it.

  16. I sympathize with the business! I've got three weddings coming up, all in different states, in the next month, my husband is graduating from the London School of Economics in July (we're moving to London permanently next Spring!), we've got his family reunion two days after graduation, and a couple of other family obligations on different sides of the US. It's going to be great but I'm tired just thinking about it! Good luck!

  17. Wow, what a busy few months you will be having. Enjoy it and take lots of pictures :) ps - that salmon looks delicious!

  18. Recipe looks amazing! My husband's family brought back a lot of Alaskan salmon a few weeks ago, so now I have a new way to cook it rather than grilling it. Enjoy your busy days ahead!

  24. My morning may have been more glamorous than yours, but your LIFE is more glamorous than mine. So excited to live vicariously through you this summer.

    PS - had to seriously restrain myself to not spit out my diet coke when I saw the last pic. So. Hilarious.

    And that salmon looks so bomb! I'm not even lying when I say I'm totally making this tonight!!

  34. Wow, you are going to have a wonderful and busy summer! I hope you enjoy it all! :) Great recipe! You'd probably like my favorite go-to....Salmon with a maple/soy glaze. It's SO easy! The sauce is just maple syrup and soy sauce and it's addictive! I love it with asparagus.

    It looks like you're going to be in my neck of the woods soon-FL. Not sure which part you are in, I'm in Orlando. Enjoy the beaches! :)
