Bought some anti-oxidant-packed pomegranate seeds today, in the berry section at the grocery store. Gorgeous (and delicious) little jewels in my lunch salad of greens, sliced Honeycrisp apple, and walnuts, with a lightly honeyed vinaigrette.

And for dinner, slow-baked salmon and roasted broccolini. I got the slow-bake idea from Jacques Pepin Fast Food My Way. It is a delicious and pretty much brainless way to cook salmon – turns out meltingly tender every time. As I’ve said many times before, Yay for Jacques Pepin! If you’re looking for a holiday gift cookbook, Fast Food My Way is terrific. (Recipes posted in comments, below.)

And for dessert? More gift wrapping! Woo hoo! I was a busy elf today, wrap, wrap, wrap. Once I get going it’s actually quite fun…it’s the getting-going part that I truly suck at. Procrastination is an ugly disorder from which I suffer miserably.

Tomorrow night, the partying resumes, this time at the lovely and luscious 112 Eatery, with Rudy& Ana and Stu & Debbie. Guaranteed fabulousness, stay tuned…

    Oven!-Baked Salmon :)
    Adapted from Jacques Pepin Fast Food My Way

    1 tsp. olive oil
    1 large skinless and boneless salmon fillet
    1 1/2 tsp. salt
    freshly ground pepper

    Heat oven to 250 degrees. Oil a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper) or an oven-safe platter. Press salmon into the oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then flip and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 35-45 minutes, on the shorter side for medium rare, on the longer for cooked through. Serve with squeezes of fresh lemon or a simple sauce of 1/2 mayo, 1/2 salsa stirred together.

    He calls it "oven-baked," and it does take less than an hour. I should really call it "low-baked," since that's what's different about it. Check it out below...

    Slow-baked salmon at Fast Food My Way? Isn't that a bit of a oxymoron? Ha! :-)
