Thanks to 2 great sales on salmon and broccoli this week, we get to have a salmon dinner for $5!!! This was a delicious and nutritious meal! And there’s even some leftovers to throw on my salad for lunch tomorrow! My boys both ate their portions of the salmon and the broccoli! Fish is an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Be sure to get those Omega 3s into your weekly diet!



3/4 lb Salmon Fillet ($3.75)
2 Broccoli Heads ($.44)
1 cup rice ($.30)
1 T lemon juice ($.05)
Spices – Seafood blend (dill, garlic)

1. Place salmon onto large piece of foil. Drizzle lemon juice on top and sprinkle spices over the top. Fold foil around the fillet(s). Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Be sure to check that is has cooked through, as cooking time will vary depending on thickness of the fillet!
2. Steam broccoli.
3. Cook 1 cup rice in 2 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil. Add rice, stir through, reduce heat and simmer (covered) for 20 minutes.

Cost $4.59

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way
of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out

Undeniably imagine that which you stated. Your favorite
reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest
factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while
folks consider worries that they just don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you

I drop a comment each time I appreciate a article on a
website or I have something to add to the conversation.
Usually it’s triggered by the fire displayed in the article I read. And on this post Salmon. I was actually moved enough to post a thought :-P I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or do some of these remarks appear like left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you make a list every one of your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
