Date Night


One important rule to keep in mind with menu planning is to be flexible. Just minutes after posting my menu for the week, our plans changed.
My parents came through Mankato on an impromptu visit and decided to grab the kids (actually, I think that is the only reason they stopped!)
This left just my husband and me. So, we took advantage of the free babysitters and went out to eat for a much-deserved date night.
I forget how nice it is to eat a meal and only have to cut my own food. Being able to have an uninterrupted conversation with my husband with no spilled milk was a recharge of the batteries.
Here’s a photo of what is left of my sweet salmon with pineapple salsa, roasted potatoes and broccoli. YUM!
Thanks Mom and Dad!

A mix of realism, humor, tips and delicious recipes. I am a mother, wife, passionate sewer and registered dietitian. I want to show people that food is medicine and getting back in the kitchen is the key to health. I love everything about food: gardening, shopping, cooking and most of all, EATING! Notice that "dishes" isn't on that list.... Food isn't perfect. It nourishes our minds, bodies and souls! As a blogger, journalist, speaker and broadcast professional, I enjoy talking about food and nutrition for websites, television, radio, magazines, and newspapers. I also work with companies to provide customized nutrition education and recipe development.
