Recipes from Wednesday cook night- Bourbon Salmon with Steamed Green Beans and Rice

by Nicole Lee


I am such a planner. One of those, “I love it when a plan comes together,” types. Where every moment, event, minute detail has been thought of and addressed prior to the plan at hand being implemented. BUT! This week’s “Wednesday Cook Night” failed. Miserably. On all levels. Even with my need to get it right. And being the woman that I am, when that failure happens I lose all momentum. When we went to Publix to buy the salmon? There was none. When I went to take photos? My battery died. When I went to edit the photos I did get? They were mediocre at best. I got a little frustrated and even when Scott offered his point and shoot to take the rest of the photos I just refused, whined and pouted. It was not one of my more proud moments. There is light at the end of this tunnel, though!

Dinner was DELICIOUS. We ended up buying a pre-seasoned bourbon salmon, steamed some fresh green beans, and served it all over jasmine rice. Had some shrimp and cocktail sauce while we were cooking and watched an excellent hockey game (Go Lightning go!). It seems that if I just relax, go with the flow and try not to get so worked up and stressed about the little things it all comes together in the end.

In the meantime look forward to next Wednesday. There’s talk of homemade Thai nomz in the works! It should be quite the night!
