Lisa's Logbook - March 7

Outside: Sunny! Sunny! Sunny! and 45 degrees!!!!

Sounds: SRN news on the Christian radio station, people running through the house on their way (LATE) to youth group, a horn beeping

Home: getting ready to defrost the "new" fridge since it no longer stays cold (argh!) and shopping for a hot water heater

Projects: changing up the schedule, the lesson plans, and the chore assignments

Pondering: when to buy good running shoes - should I wait until mud season is over? Or should I buy them as soon as I start to run outside again regularly?

Teaching: The Lightning Thief - unit study will cover Empire State Building, Greek gods, making blue candy, and maybe learning how to play pinochle (anyone know how?)

Gratitude: Tax refunds came in last week!

Recipes: Need one for salmon. I've never cooked it before and I am intimidated!

Duds: black sweatpants, bright pink long-sleeved tee, white socks, wet hair since I just showered (after my 4 mile run!)

Reads: Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë and Brava, Valentine by Adriana Trigiani

Vids: Dance Flick, New York I Love You, The Genius Club, Noise (see the mini-reviews at Mirkwood Reflections)

Hopes: that I can schedule another couple essay classes

Love: when a child cuddles with me in the morning....

Plans: Spanish, Unit study on The Lightning Thief (begins Tuesday), Work, some soccer prep work for registration, and maybe a night out? and a Halo3 party at a friend's house

Pic: I can't think of a pic today, so I am posting without. Sorry! :-)

two salmon recipes for you:

First, make basting sauce: 1 tsp Thai Kitchen roasted red chili paste to half cup pure maple syrup. If you don't like food too spicy then reduce red pepper paste to 1/2 tsp. Grill the salmon-during last ten minutes, baste salmon with the sauce. serve with jasmine rice and stir fried veggies.

second recipe

Make dipping sauce: 1 tbls horseradish, 1/2 tsp sea salt,1/2 tsp dried dill or 1 tbl chopped fresh, 8 oz sour cream, mix well and allow to chill a few hours or overnight. Place salmon in rimmed baking sheet or pan, dot with butter and roast in 425 degree oven. Serve with new potatoes and asparagus and the dipping sauce.
