So sensational salmon salad

Today was challenging.

I got to work and my adorable little nephew was there, which made me smile. He always makes me smile and his presence when I arrived at the office was a great start to my day.

But that's about where it ended. The poor guy hasn't been feeling well, and about an hour before his scheduled doctor's appointment, he threw up all over the front of himself and all over his office pack-n-play. From there, things kept rolling downhill.

But I don't want to rehash every detail, so I'm going to bypass the painful parts and move on to my evening, which got better from the moment I fell into my wonderful husband's arms.

He always makes things better. I love coming home from a bad day because he gives the best hugs and always listens and finds some way to make me smile.

And then there was dinner, which was fresh, healthy and fabulously delicious.

I made a salmon salad with fresh, wild salmon from my family's fishing lodge in Alaska poached in white wine and champagne dressing, lettuce, spinach and radicchio from a local organic farm, tomato, avocado, grilled asparagus, boiled potatoes and homemade croutons made from a whole wheat english muffin.

It was so delicious! I ate a huge plate of it with a glass of bubbly water made with our SodaStream soda maker we got for our wedding.

Everything was so fresh and filling, we got up from the table with full bellies.

Now it's off to bed with us so we can start it all over again tomorrow! Hopefully it will go a little more smoothly than today did!

Goodnight, friends!
