Monday Night Menu: The Recipes

Despite the fact that I read a lot of food blogs and own a nice stack of cookbooks..I rarely ever follow all of the steps in a recipe! Since I tend to add/remove/change quantities like crazy, I'm not sure of anyone else will be able to follow..but figured it was worth a post!

Here's what I ended up making last night (see previous post for recipe inspiration).

Salmon w/ Honey Mustard and Herb Crust
Preheat oven to 450

1. Pat 2 salmon fillets dry
2.Lightly blend (I used a mini food processor):
olive oil, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, and fresh parsley.
3. Pulse and add enough oil so that mixture looks wet but not liquid-y.
4. Smear honey mustard on salmon
5. Spoon the breadcrumb mixture onto the salmon, and create a nice top coat.
6. Cook for 15 minutes (uncovered)

Watermelon & Feta Salad
1. Chop into large bowl:
--Approx. 2 cups watermelon
--A few handfuls of bell pepper (I used yellow)
--6-7 fresh mint leaves
--A small handful of green onion
--2 medium sized tomatoes

2. Stir in:
--Approx. 1 cup feta cheese
--Enough olive oil to coat
