I love lazy Sundays, especially when I stayed out late the night before and it’s chilly outside. PLUS I get to spend the day baking or creating something new in the kitchen! Last Sunday morning I went to the farmer’s market and bought an absolutely lovely salmon fillet that the guy had caught fresh in Alaska. It was a bit of a splurge but it was completely worth it! I decided to make a simple, creamy lemon dill sauce to accompany it and it turned out so well I wanted to share it with you! I even had enough leftover to use with sauteed shrimp the next night.
If you haven’t already you need to go enter to win my giveaway for Nikki’s Coconut Butter! That stuff is absolutely addicting and I can’t wait until my next order arrives… although it won’t be for awhile now because I am going to start a 21 Day Sugar Detox once I move next weekend!
I forgot to tell you, I am moving into my apartment in less than a week and I am pretty dang excited! I have loved living with my parent’s for a few months and am definitely going to miss hanging out with them but it is time for me to live alone. I have never lived alone in my 25 years and I am anxious to see how it goes. The thing I am most amped about is having my own kitchen and not having to clean up after anyone else! I have always shared a fridge with at least one other person (and up to 3 other people) and I am inappropriately excited for all the freezer space. <– How you can tell I’m obsessed with food…
If anyone reading has lived alone and has any important advice to pass on, let me know! It will definitely be a big change since I am a pretty social person and like to talk, but maybe I’ll just have to start throwing dinner parties all the time? or talking to my cat more… hopefully not the latter.
Anyways, hope you love this easy sauce next time you make fish for dinner! Have a fun and lazy Sunday
