    The little dot on this thread tells me that I've made 1 or 2 contributions over the time that this has been here on TEG. (It should be a sticky, don't you think?) Usually, I don't have anything special from our menu because food is so simple around here. But, DW cooked salmon the other day (my favorite fish :)) and I had left-overs in a sandwich and then, left-overs again - in an omelet for lunch today.

    Usually, DW just bakes salmon under cilantro and shallots or lemon basil or dill. A couple days ago she made a marinade that she has done before and baked the salmon in that. She just does this off-the-cuff, with the appropriate ingredients (as she sees it). The salmon was very good and I found a recipe on the internet for something very similar as a grilling sauce and just assumed that the measurements are just about the same.

    Please, whether you use it as a grilling sauce or a marinade - feel free to adjust and adapt it. DW used Garden Salsa peppers altho' she usually uses jalapeos, for example. I think it is better with the jalapeos but they aren't quite ready in the garden and the Garden Salsa peppers were ;).

    Here's the slightly modified "Spicy Herb-Grilled Salmon Steaks." The first 3 ingredients after the salmon are from our garden:

    salmon steaks

    1/2 cup basil leaves
    1/3 cup green onions
    3 tbsp jalapeno pepper (minced & seeded)
    2 tbsp water
    1 tsp sugar
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    2 garlic cloves (minced)
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    Juice from a lime

    Add, "cooking spray for baking dish" and you've just got everything that went into the oven. Today, I did a real good job finding all the pepper bits to go with the salmon for the omelet, while leaving the basil leaves behind. Oh, and there was a little Tillamook cheddar that went on the eggs there also :).

    Found a Quinoa salad recipe in the Sacramento Bee and just finished making it. I used what I had....

    Toasted quinoa, ckd
    fresh tomatoes, diced
    1 minced spicy pepper (mine was jalapeno)
    Cucumber, diced
    Radishes, diced
    left over green onions, sl thin
    leftover 1 C canned white beans, rinsed, drained
    1 bu of fresh cilantro
    2 Tbsp cumin
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    garlic clove
    juice from a fresh lime

    So far, tastes great. Will taste even better after it sits around in the frig....

    The recipe called for roasted corn off the cob, but I didn't grow corn this year.

    I'm attempting to make candied red habanero peppers... According to my recipe, it takes a few days to make because I have to keep adding sugar. I double gloved my hands, but they somehow still ended up with chili on them because they are on fire. Additionally I touched my face and it is now on fire. This is just silly.
