This past week I bought some salmon (no fish left in freezer), so this week's cooking will include poached salmon (one of my all-time favorite, simple recipes) as well as another quinoa salad of some kind. Quinoa has quickly becomes a favorite "simple" grain, giving a fresh, nutty flavor to fresh vegetables like corn, peppers, jalapenos, and avocados, as well as black beans.
I may also try some Fourth of July specials, if there is a party...
