i am so inspired by susanne's latest post...her flowers are gorgeous and blooming, and it makes me want to have pretty pots of flowers on my front porch. my poor herb garden is in need of attention too... i want to weed it and cut back some of the herbs that have gotten a little out of control.

mike inspires me too...he's stays so busy and full of energy all the time. today he closed a big loan that he's been working on for a couple of doctors here. then he's coming home and mowing and edging the yard!

and my mom inspires me...she and les are settling in their house and getting everything organized and cleaned.

so i'm inspired and can think of lots of projects i want to do...if only i had some energy and wasn't sleepy all of the time! but i'm determined to clean the rest of my house today and cook a good southern dinner tonight (cornbread, sausage, black eyed peas, and cabbage.)

here's the recipe for the salmon and spagetti dish i made...i found a recipe in giada's newest cookbook and then changed it up a bit...and i made it for just the two of us, but it could easily be doubled.

1/3 bag of organic spagetti

2 natural salmon fillets

1 lemon

2 tb olive oil

1 1/2 cups fresh organic spinach

salt and pepper


boil water and cook spagetti. while spagetti is cooking, cut up salmon into 1 inch squares and season with s & p. heat up skillet and cook salmon until done. in individual bowls, put 3/4 cup spinach in each bowl. when spagetti is cooked, toss with olive oil and juice from one lemon, plus s & p. put spagetti on top of spinach, then top with salmon and parmesan.

it may sound like an odd combo, but is so yummy! and the hot spagetti cooks the spinach a little, but it's still crisp. enjoy!
