Now when I cook, I make it count.

  
Since giving birth, I have to find time to do the things I enjoy. I’ve realized how much I took advantage of the little things in life. So I try to have fun when I’m doing normal day to day activities like cooking:

So, I decided one night I’d make dinner (I was very hungry and never have time to do this daily), and this is what I chose to make:

Pan-seered Salmon with potatoes & onions and steamed Brussels 

4 pieces of frozen salmon

Salt & Pepper 

Goya

Smoked Paprika

2 Garlic cloves 

1/3 c chopped mushrooms 

Vegetable oil (ran out of olive)

Butter

Pan-Seered Salmon 

I used frozen salmon so of course I let it thaw over night in the fridge, then I seasoned it with light salt & pepper on one side, & Goya on the other (I’m weird like that). And let marinate for 30 minutes.

Red Potatoes w mushroom, garlic, & onion

I chopped and rinsed 3 medium red potatoes and cooked them in a pan with 3 tsp of vegetable oil (I usually use olive but ran out). I first added the garlic (which burned a little— I forgot it cooks quick should’ve put that in last?) but anywho I cooked it until it was kind of browned and wasn’t translucent. 

As for the Brussels, I bought the bag of steamable vegetables (pop them in the microwave for 5 minutes faced down, added butter and pepper

Voila! Dinner is served.
