Honey Dijon Salmon

Honey Dijon Salmon


I’m always asking people what they are having for dinner, just to get some inspiration. I don’t enjoy making everyday food, I love making food at the weekend though and I will try some really complex recipes, its just the everyday food that is so, well, everyday.

My criteria is: everyone in the family has to eat the same, it can’t take more than 30 minutes to make (start of prep, to being on the plate), it is healthy – not a lot to ask?

Anyway, I came up with a very simple ‘recipe’ the other day and I will share…but please send me something you like in return? I’m in need of some inspiration!

For the recipe:

Le Cirque

Le Grand Chapiteau

I hadn’t felt the need to see the latest Cirque du Soleil in San Jose. I thought we would sit this one out, but when the opportunity to go with some friends came about, we dutifully went along– more for the children than for ourselves. What was I thinking??

As a youngster, I loved the circus. Of course back then, there was no Cirque du Soleil and the acts were mainly with animals – a man sticking his head in lions mouth, a woman riding around on a horse displaying varying levels of risky moves etc. Now our children sit open mouthed, marveling at the pure beauty, precision and athleticism of these multi-talented performers.

This particular Cirque was Ovo. “An immersion into the teeming and energetic world of insects”. It was the perfect one to see with the kids. – Not scary at all, not inappropriate as some can be, just a permanently moving, entertaining feast for the eyes.

If you get the chance to go, I highly recommend it and so do our girls.

Lost in motherhood

Me and My Beautiful Baby Boy

My current life consists of diaper changing, breast feeding, and comforting a cranky infant. Alright, alright, it also includes baby coos, sweet smiles and nuzzles from an extremely cute two month old boy. So why can I only focus on what I can’t get done? How about I give you a little sample? I am now lousy at responding to my friends emails. I forget to RSVP to important events in my friends lives. I didn’t know my girlfriend had stopped working in October. I forgot to pay the mortgage, don’t worry they aren’t going to foreclose on my house, but I now lack the time to get the bill paid…and I use bill pay, so technically it is a click of the button. How is it possible that I haven’t done it yet? I honestly don’t know. These are just the trivial things I haven’t gotten to, and don’t get me started on my career that is also currently on hold with no definite time frame of when I am going back.

Geronimo!

The Flying Dad


My dad turns 65 years young tomorrow. Not satisfied with
having a nice meal, or a celebratory drink, he has decided to shock the pants out of all of us and throw himself out of an airplane…though thankfully wearing a parachute.
My paternal Grandma had the brain disorder Alzheimer’s. I can only remember her with the disease and while my brother and I had a lot of fun when we were young, laughing about how she would call my dad by the wrong name, didn’t know who we were and would study the back of the table mat as if reading a really good book. It is only now that we are older we can see that it must have been very painful for my Dad to watch her deteriorate.
So, in order to raise awareness and money for the Alzheimer’s Society in the UK (or to try to avoid the disease in a very drastic way!) He is willingly going up into the skies tomorrow morning to launch himself out of said airplane.

Good luck Dad and Happy Birthday!
We are proud of you.
