Hi guys!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? Ours pretty much completely revolved around my girls musical theatre performances of “Cinderella.” They have been part of a program called “Broadway Bound” and they have been practicing with their cast of 5-8 year olds (!!) since September. It all culminated in the premier (Opening night) Saturday. They then had a Sunday Matinee and two more shows next weekend. It was pretty much the funniest, sweetest thing I have ever seen and I am so proud of my little munchkins- but I am shocked at how exhausting musical theatre is. I mean, we have been crashing SO early all weekend and kids and parents alike in our family have dark circles half way down our cheeks.

But maybe that’s just the holiday season?

Crispy Salmon with Winter Salsa

I also finished decorating the house for Christmas. Last year I did this decoration house tour- do you want one for this year? Is that interesting to you? If so let me know, I can post it next week.

And now onto the food. In a sea of sweets (don’t worry I have more coming the rest of the week!) I thought I would give you just a touch of savory (and actually- a seriously healthy!!) dish.

Crispy Salmon with Winter Salsa

I love crispy pan cooked salmon so much- being a Seattle girl, Salmon is just one of my favorite things. And when you put that thick extra crispy skin on a tender, flaky piece of fresh fish, it is truly great.

When it comes to a condiment for fish this good, I love the idea of adding a really fresh, bright and delicious fruit salsa. I made this and this variety with Salmon this summer, and now I thought it was only right to create a winter counter part. That is where this winter fruit salsa came in. Cranberries and pomegranate seeds pair with traditional spicy jalapeno, white onion, cilantro and lime to create a very unique and

delicious dish perfect for a weeknight, or any special occasion. Ahem…. We even have Salmon for Christmas Dinner sometimes- why not this variety??

Hope you enjoy ☺
