Here it is!

Broiled Salmon with Creamy Lemon Sauce


Phase 1

This deciptively simple salmon entree includes a sinfully rich tasting lemony sauce that will impress ever time.  For best results, squeeze your own fresh lemon juice.

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers
1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet


Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Reduce heat to low.  Stir in the lemon juice, capers, and lemon pepper seasoning and cook for 5 minutes.  Add the sour cream and cook for 5 minutes, or until heated through.

Meanwhile, place the salmon on the prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes, or unitl the fish is just opaque.  Serve with the sauce.

Makes 4 servings

Tomereader, thank you for the recipe.saving it and will pass on.
Size is just perfect, please don't worry about.

One turkey cooked picked and ready for the freezer, threw some rolled oats in this one. Now to do the next 12 lb turkey...

Tomereader, the salmon recipe sounds good.  I am not a salmon fan, but I'll try it some day.  Tom doesn't like fish, but I do.

Good morning everyone, 27 but feels like 21. Must be pretty windy again. Not as early here this morning, woke just before 5, better than 3:am, right?

MARY ANN  I sleep good one night and the next I am lucky to get 3 or 4  hours.  I used to get at least 7-8 good hours sleep without waking.  This has been going on the last few weeks. Hope you do go home Thursday, nothing like sleeping in your own bed.

AMY  so Buttercup did not want the gooseberries. Gosh I have not seen them in years. For some reason they are bammed in this state, something about them destroying some trees, cannot remember what ones. More snow for you to play with? We really have not had anything this month only a dusting a couple of times that melted in the rain that always follows.

LLOYD  plain angelfood cake is not too bad but the icing will not do much good for you. I like strawberries and whipped cream on a slice of it.

PHYLLIS  like you I am looking forward to warmer weather. Been to dold here for me to go outside for some fresh air and walking. I don't get Schwann's any more  but never tried their fish. Like you I know I should eat fish but seldom eat it. I did like their mac and cheese but no in the microwave. I would put it in a casserole and into the oven.

TOMEREADER  what you said about being big was easy to read.

Wish my favorite was here, I would ask her to cook fish for me, her husband loves fish and she makes it often for him. Time for my second mug of coffee.

Have a good day.

Good morning everyone.

Warmer temp is -3° F this morning. So far looking like a great day. Need to do domestic duties (thanks Callie)and I was going to mail a letter but forgot it was Family Day. Some places may be open, not many and the post office will be closed.
Yesterday the neighbour came and borrowed our wheelchair, he had to take his Mom to the city for a CT scan if an xray here didn't show anything.I went over and fed the dog and cat for them and will hear how his Mom is later today. She is 93 yrs old and sharp as a tack!

Better get on with the day.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Bubble, thank you for posting that.  I just finished picking the turkey and both dogs stayed close...with hopes I would drop some. I did drop part of a raw carrot and Jesse took care of that. They don't know it but I did save a bit of turkey for us to make a sandwich for lunch.

Laundry is blowing on the line and it is a lovely day!

Hi, Joy! Hope you get better fast & the food is super good (dream on  ;)   )

Amy, that is so cute of your pup bringing in the wood! Thanks, Bubble for the link & posting.

Got warm enough today to open the sliding doors & air the house. The thermostat is set on 68 but the inside temp is 2 degrees warmer! Thermostat sets on the other side of an inside wall that gets sun. Quite sure the house smells better. Supposed to get colder for a few days so also aired the RV & charged batteries. Now I need a nap! All 3 cats had their supper & back out so have the house to myself. I noticed that one evergreen bush is covered with bag worms.... they are fresh & have the outsides of their bags covered with the berries from the bush. Some years the birds eat those berries, too bad they can't get the worms in the bags.  :knuppel2:

JaneS

So nice to come by and see JOY'S post.  I wish you better every day! 

I had an appointment with the chiropractor (in my case she's an applied kinesiologist).  I felt so good when I left there that I just wanted to curl up and sleep.  It's a little under an hour's drive to get home from there and as soon as Cathy dropped me off, I took Mickie for a walk, had something to eat and then curled up on the couch.  I slept for a good two hours!  I haven't slept that well since I fell in December!

We both had some supper and then I made the mistake of turning the TV on and I slept off and on ever since!  I wonder if I'll sleep in bed tonight!  We shall see.

SHIRLEY, I'm looking forward to the day that I can open the doors and windows and air out this house.  It always smells so good after a long, shut-in winter!

Now I'm off to check out my bed.  I wonder if there are as many zzzzs in there as there were on the couch?

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy and healthy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone.I have 2 different weather things on this PC one says 24 and the other  says 34. Take your choice, crazy computer. One says rain by 11am and the other says rain by 1pm. Then the one here in our posts says something different.

LLOYD  I have known too many diabetics whe think they can eat every thing they want and think their meds will take care of it. Still have to be careful what they eat. Saw it in my family. So far my children do not have it and neither do I.

AMY  love those stretches. So sad when some get old and are still have a good brain but the body starts falling apart. I am not 90 YET and my body sure does not want to do  I want anymore.  Drives me crazy watching someone do what I did better than they do and they are getting paid.

JANE  you don't really want to know about my day yester day. I had no CNA Friday and none yesterday either and no call from the woman who makes the schedule.  I know some celebrated President's day but these people worked, If no one comes today I will call my insurance company and complain.

AMY  love the foto of Jesse with the wood, looks as proud as can be helping his MOM with the wood.

BUBBLE  thanks for the link.

JOY  it is so good seeing your post. Maybe assisted living would be the best for you. I think about that at times but don't think I can afford it. You are missed in here.

SHIRLEY  wish I could open my windows and air this place out. We are not allowed to open window till it is over 60 outdside. Crazy manager and HER rules.

JANE  hope you slep great last night. I went to bed around 9 last night and woke at 5 this morning so had enough sleep to face the day.

Have a great day.

Good morning everyone..
We did have a skiff of snow overnight..with more to come today. Not sure when the music begins for the dance.

Finishing the jobs that didn't get done yesterday. I did manage to put over 24 lbs of turkey away for the dogs in the freezer.

Shirley, I would love to open the windows and doors to have the fresh air in.

Gloria, maybe there is a different company that could take over and be better at their job?

Better get a move on here..

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning everyone. we are at 33º and cloudy and  calling for high of 39º today and some sun. have a good day just as you like. Gloria thanks as long i do not have pain it is alright with me. just do not want any more head knock's or falls. so far it takes relay hard knocks to brake my bones. but i do not want any more of the ones that cause blood blades. I have had enough tubes in holes they drill in my head to rid the blood on the brain.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I did sleep well last night.  I must have been really worn out yesterday.  I didn't go to bed until almost midnight and I was awake and ready to roll at about 5:30 with no breaks or wakes in the meantime.  I'll take that every night!

LLOYD, if you want to avoid those needles, avoid the things that cause them to be used on you.  Mind the drs. and mind Nancy and leave the chores to someone else.  If they don't get done, well...they'll be there later.

When I got up this morning, Mickie got her pill and we went out for a "quickie", then we came in and waited for the boinger for breakfast.  We had it a little early this morning and it's only 10:30 and she's telling me it's time for lunch.  We've already had a nice long walk and we'll surely have another later.

I think Frankie is off today and if she is, she's coming over here to give her doggie a bath (she doesn't have a bath tub, just a shower) and then she's giving Mickie a bath, too.  She says that's payback for all the rides I've given her.  I don't need payback but it's nice!

I've got the chicken cooked for the dog food (not nearly as much as AMY did) but enough for 3 batches of food mixed up.  With the turkey and elk in the freezer that will last about a month.  I also saved out enough to make chicken noodle corn soup whenever it is that Frankie is coming over  She loves it and so do I!

JOY, keep on keeping on!  We want you all better.  You enjoy your family so much that we all want you to have that continue!  And I'm sure they are all looking after you because it's plain to tell, they LOVE YOU!

AMY, your kitty is absolutely right!  We do all need a different perspective now and then!  I don't think I can stand on my head any more but I used to be able to do that right out in the middle of the room and not so long ago.  My Dad challenged all of us to learn how to do that and his challenge was by demonstration.  He was well into his 70s and could still do it and I accepted the challenge.  I was probably at least 70 and could still do it.  I have one daughter who accepted the challenge, too.  I wonder if she's tried lately?  I wonder if I'm too old to try?  I suppose I am!  If I were to ask that question of daughter Cathy, she'd get a horrified look on her face and make me promise NOT to try!

I guess I got a little wordy this morning.  One more note...my BP is down this morning.  I hope it stays down!

I wish you all a lovely, healthy day!
Make it your own in every way!

And, PLEASE, share it with us.  We're a nosy bunch!

Well, it is not nice out there. The school busses were cancelled and we did get the rain after the snow.

Well, your kitty did the trick, Amy, I looked at things upside down & put the bit between my teeth & told that doctor's office that "I'm walking!"  Got an auto call from the pharmacy that my pills were once again ready to be picked up so called a human back & asked what pills??? Seems the doctor's office decided being allergic was not reason to listen to me, so ordered them again. Last straw. I got all kinds of excuses from the lady on the line at doctor's office, even asked if I'd like the doctor to call me, but I explained "too late"...

So I called Blue Cross & Medicare to ask what my position was, whether they would pay for me to get the surgery from another doctor even though this one ran so many tests & would be sending them bills. They do pay for another opinion, even when I explained that I went to the surgeon's office "for a consultation" and not prepared for tests, felt intimidated right down the line as they measured, etc. and got me ready for surgery! What happened to "consultation/ a meeting in which people or groups have a discussion before decisions are made"??? I explained that I didn't refuse, felt whipped, beaten, bullied, threatened, overwhelmed, defeated, afraid, out of control, I was ready to give up except so many others in the same boat, afraid what would happen with  insurance.

By now we have now battled over one prescription since Feb.7, I am a basket case. Had to change shirts twice today between calls, because the under arms had dripped to my waist! Now I know I am not alone in this type treatment and can now understand why my husband would not go back when his eye was botched & only saw a blur until he died... so I declared war on being treated like cattle going to slaughter.

Blue Cross lady was so nice & after listening to my story assured me that they would pay again when I was ready to find another doctor. She connected me with Medicare & another understanding lady that said they would certainly pay for a 2nd opinion. I did not have to make a formal complaint but insurance did say they will make note of treatment of this doctor.

My nerves are slowly settling down, I do not like to do battle but told them without any hesitation that, "I was willing to take this to the public" if they had a problem with my walking. I can't imagine how many little old ladies & men might come out of the woodwork if they knew someone was willing to fight for OUR rights! I am drained, daughter has changed her flight plans & I have some eye drops that are paid for out of pocket, that I hope the next doctor will agree to. So that's been my day.

Jane, glad your BP is down. I took the 2nd dose of the script my cardio dr sent, actually cut the pill in half because big warning on bottle "May cause dizziness.. wait to drive". Lady at the grocery store told me about a place that sells "natural" means for health issues, I will go there tomorrow. Also called the optometrist office & she wasn't in today, but they told me she did write a script for glasses "as my eyes were that day", in case I didn't opt for surgery. So I will have some new glasses made that hopefully will get me through the summer and worry about this next fall. Haha, I put off the valve surgery, the knee surgery and now cataract surgery, one of these days it will all catch up with me! Not too sure I want to live to 120 at this rate!

Cats are waiting to walk down to the river so will shut up. ONWARD! Hope y'all approve of my taking up the banner for Seniors Everywhere!

JaneS

SHIRLEY, I sent you an email.  I hope it helps you out.

I've had a busy day.  Took Mickie for 3 walks, did an errand, ground up the chicken for dog food, made chicken noodle soup and a side dish of chicken salad for my lunch, fed two doggies, entertained Frankie, washed towels, folded them and put them away, vacuumed the flooded spot 5 times (it still looks dirty) and did my usual crossword and word puzzles.  Whew!  At least I didn't have to shovel snow! It was actually up in the mid-forties today!  I heard geese on the nearby pond.  I think they're a little mixed up.  I think it's early for them.

Now I'm going to run the dishwasher and get my jammies on.  Might go to bed a bit early tonight.  We shall see.  I hope you all had a great day!

well I am in at a reasonable time tonight to bid you all good Night and sweet dreams.  JaneS I was reading before Posting and read where you were scolding me. a up date the other day I went Ku medical center and they gave me a through going over. there nurse called me to day and gave me the results. she said what you are doing is just right keep doing it just like you are. she said the numbers are perfect. she rattled off what, but all i reamber was the blood sugar. they told me to take my blood sugar in the morning before i eat.I do that. also they told me while back to if i eat weight at least two hours after eating to take it. I read one time a old Man said happy at my age Is not wetting my pants, I agree. also one time not to Meighen witch President they were interviewing they asked him what brand of underwayer he wore. He said it depends. have a rest of the day the best.

Good Morning everyone. Nancy has a stuffy Head and pressure in her ear. that makes her hard to live with right now, I sure will be glad when warm weather gets here. I told her we should get in the RV and go to Las cruses NM. and visit some old friends there and our kin in A Z on the way and then go
 zagging along the way to Tampa and spend rest of winter there. that did not please her either. some days cant please. Hope your day is going better than our;s is.

Good morning everyone.

Doing the happy dance here because we didn't get all that snow we were told about. Must have went further north.

Taking Kyle to appointment this morning then home to work about the house. Have friends dropping in later for a visit.

Shirley, goodness it is your body, you know what is going on and how it reacts to meds. Good for you to get another opinion and just maybe a set of years on the Dr that will listen to you.

Lloyd, good morning. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Joy and Phyliss hope each day is much better for you.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning everyone, another damp one here and just turned the heat up. I was a happy o woman, at last my favorite CNA is back. It was so good to see her again and she is happy to be backto work at last. She was out for 4 months or more. I hope the one in charge will let her keep the same hours. I will soon be eating better with her here. She likes cooking and what she cooks is good. We just sat and talked yesterday and it felt great to have her back. It will be 3 years since she first came here  in March. She is like a family member by now.

AMY  Some companys are worse than this one. The lady who made the schedules was great but she  had no help and the stress got to
her and her doctor made her take a sick leave, her BP was so high he was worried she would have a stroke. This new one has help and does not know what she is doing. For one thing is if the CNA's had a better  wage they  might last longer. They have to work one day on a week end and I had a new one for a week till she found out she had to work a Saturday. Om Monday she never showed up for work and never called in, she just quit after 5 days.

LLOYD  I would not like any holes drilled in my head either. Just be very careful what you do and how you walk. We want you atound for a lot more years.

JANE  glad you slept good last night. I was sound asleep around10 last night and woke a little after 5 this morning. Gee nothing much happens in my life to talk about. I'm just happy to have my CNA back at last. Great your BP is down.

SHIRLEY  you make me so glad I have had no reaction with any med. Glad you walked out on that pushy surgeon.

LLOYD  most people I know wo are diabetic take a reading first thing in the morning and 2 hours after eating.

Have a great day.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's 30º here right now and heading for a high of 39 today.  I can take that!  I hope the geese can take it.  I heard them on the pond this morning again.  I really think they have their directions mixed up but at least the pond isn't frozen any more.

YAY GLORIA!  you got your fav gal back!  I sure hope she can stay around.  It's so nice to have someone you who makes you feel comfortable.  That's how I feel when my cleaning dynamo is here.  I like her personally and she does a terrific job.  She like to talk but it doesn't slow her down!

Frankie is going home this morning.  She has to work this afternoon.  We've had a good visit and enjoyed our chicken noodle soup together.  I think she as up during te night and had some more.  There's a clean dish and spoon and a serving spoon on the counter in the kitchen.  She often has "middle of the night snacks"  Her work schedule is very erratic and she just can't seem to settle into a meal routine.  I understand that.  Back when I worked full time at WM I was pretty much the same with meals.

LLOYD, it sounds like your minding your doctors and doing as you should.  Keep that up!  I hope Nancy feels better soon.  I wouldn't want to jump in a camper and travel if I didn't feel well either.

AMY....Goodie, Goodie!  for no snow!  But I bet the snow blower is beginning to feel like a wall flower...no one to dance with!

I wish you all a lovely, healthy day!
Make it your own in every way!

And come by and share it with your nosy friends!

I'm trying to decide if I want to keep my hair appointment this afternoon.  It is a dreary day and is only going to get more so.  The weather people are saying that we may get snow tomorrow.  Not much and it won't last long but I vote that we don't get any.  However, Mother Nature doesn't pay attention to me.

I saw my doctor on Monday and she was happy with me so I'm happy with me, too.  Things are going well for the present.  I enjoy the good days and endure the not so good days.  That is all that any of us can do, isn't it?

I made Fudge Brownies in the IP yesterday. OMGosh!, that will make any kind of day better.  Chocolate always brightens MY day!  David is very willing to help me eat it, too.  Isn't that kind of him?  ;)

I hope Joy is doing well and that Mary Ann is able to come home where it is always more comfortable.  I'm thinking of everyone who is having worries about whatever and wishing them peace.

Take care, All.

Turned out to be a great day, chill but not bad. Managed to chase,catch and corral dust bunnies then washed all the floors.

 Managed to get all the blocks sewn into rows and now need to sew rows together.

 Company came and Jessie was so excited..loved getting more pats from someone else. We all had a good laugh when my friend was petting him and up came the hind leg! :yikes: I knew what was happening but our friends didn't and the look on their faces was priceless. When I am sitting on my chair Jesse will come close  and I pet the inside of his leg...hence he lifts it to make sure I rub all his leg.

We have had supper and now ready to just enjoy the evening.

Phyliss, I am with you on the chocolate. Happy to read your Dr is please and yes all one can do is put one foot ahead of the other. Or sit and eat chocolate till the feeling comes back :)
