A Readers Gotta Eat

So obviously I’m obsessed with books, anything to do with books. I also love food. I mean, who doesn’t love food right? Obviously not everyone loves books, but you can always relate to someone with food. So what do I do when I’m not reading? Great question!!! I’m cooking!!! 😄 I love to make a mess of my kitchen as long as the product is something tasty 😋.

Lately I’ve been thinking about creating dishes to pair with books. I might have to do it for books I’ve already read, but for now it’s just a thought. I do try to keep my dishes easy to eat while reading. For example, this delicious lemon basil salmon and asparagus dish I made the other night!

It was super easy and soooo delicious! I added half an avocado to my plate as well. I have a weird way of eating avocado, I like to eat it with lime juice and mayo. Anyone else eat it that way? Or eat another kind of food in a quirky or unusual way?

I might need to work on my presentation 😳🤣 but I was mighty proud of the delicious meal I had thrown together for myself. The salmon was flaky and juicy and the basil was a great addition.

What I did was I bought two filet servings from the seafood counter at my local Wegmans. I placed the filets on top of the asparagus, then drizzled some EVOO and lemon juice. Then I added the chopped basil on top of the salmon and garnished with lemon slices. Baked at 350 degrees (Fahrenheit) for about 30 minutes…. et voilà! Super simple but yet sooo pleasing to the tastebuds. Oh, and easy to nibble on while you read! I didn’t spill a single drop on my book last night. 🥳🤓

I’ll check in with y’all on Friday! Happy Reading 🤓
