Friday evenings – a bit of cooking and TV

After a boot camp session and then a short break I came home ready to prepare dinner.

Melissa has had a busy week and was at home looking after our sick daughter – so I was excited to come up a nice meal. We had some Salmon ready to go so during a brief work break I found a recipe for a Herb crust and carrot purée.

Our rosemary and chives have been growing spectacularly so they were in.

For the carrots I added a small bit of butter and brown sugar at the end for smoothness and a slight extra sweetness.

It came together well. I fried the skin side and then put it in the oven for 5 minutes. Beautiful.

Here’s a photo –


After cleaning up we grabbed some slice and Baileys n milk with ice and settled in. I finally convinced Melissa to watch Game of Thrones with me.

I can’t wait for Season 3 so I hope to rewatch 1&2 before it begins. We’ll see.

Next week I hope to blog a bit more about some fun comics news from my world – but if you’ve seen my twitter or Facebook you’d know a bit about it.

Looking forward to Saturday!
