Good news—we’ve arrived!
And everything looks just the same as it did when we left
On the way, I made a pit stop at Starbucks to pick up my default travel drink,
A grande café latte with nonfat milk, Truvia, and a splash of half & half.
Being the frequent traveler between Miami and Orlando that I am, I’ve developed quite the strategy for success when it comes to surviving the long four-hour trek. I’ve learned that I need to have coffee, water, and good music, or else the trip is a blow.
Oh, and snacks—but that is always a requirement in any given in any situation
Being that it was already 4:30 when Will & I got back, we dropped off Popcorn and swung right by Publix to pick up some goods for dinner. As soon as we walked into the kitchen, I was already getting my hands dirty in some freshly-bought salmon and veggies. Twenty minutes later, this creation was being devoured.
I call it Roasted Tomato Salmon Pasta–
First, I roasted some onions, broccoli and half of a cubed tomato at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Then I seasoned a salmon fillet with salt, pepper, and minced garlic, and broiled it in the oven for about 7 minutes on its own.
While the salmon cooked I prepped some carb-less Pasta Slim noodles by rinsing them in a strainer, then heating them in a pan with 3 Tablespoons of tomato sauce. I forked apart the salmon fillet and piled it with the roasted veggies on top of the pasta. Presto! Italian made healthy & easy!
I was really surprised with how much flavoring the roasted tomatoes added to this dish! The next time I make any type of pasta with red sauce, I’m going to be sure to add a few freshly roasted tomatoes for an extra kick.
But then again, salmon was included– so I was set either way
Alright, I’ve got lots of unpacking to do! Hope all of you had a great weekend!
A bit to do: Will & I came across this video of these crazy guys using corny pick up lines on random girls. If you’re in need of a good laugh, check it out!
A bit to think about: Do you have any default necessities when traveling?
Ever roasted tomatoes?
