Christmas Shopping and a Simple Dinner
We spent the day shopping today, and so a lot of our time was spent fighting traffic, trying to find a parking spot, finding exactly what we wanted for some people and realizing that some gifts were not so easy to find. All in all, we got a lot done, but not everything. We grabbed lunch out in the middle of shopping (a little late; around 2:00) and each of us enjoyed a salad.
We ended our shopping extravaganza at our favorite grocery store (Market Street) and browsed the fish and meat counter trying to figure out what to eat for dinner. This is totally not the way I usually plan for dinner.
We decided on some Salmon brochettes from the fish counter. Gerry lit the charcoal grill and we brushed them with a little olive oil and seasoned simply with salt and pepper. Once done, we served the brochettes on a bed of rice with a side of steamed green beans. A very simple, yet delicious dinner and even though we ate at 7:00, I still couldn't finish all of my food.
I am looking forward to planning my menu now for next week. I'll be back at Market Street tomorrow to buy our food for the week (except for any fresh fish).
