Grilled Salmon

We grilled with this salmon recipe last night & loved it! It's super easy to prep & clean - my 3yr old enjoyed pouring the spices into the bag. And it's very yummy. We served it with couscous (on clearance at Big Lots) and broccoli.

4 small salmon fillets (I used the frozen pack from Aldi)
1t lemon pepper to taste
1t garlic powder to taste
1t salt to taste
1/3 cup light soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil

1. Mix everything but the salmon together in a large ziplock bag, until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
2. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
3. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade.
4. Cook salmon for 6-8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

We're trying to cook more fish, so if you have favorite fish recipes, I'd love to borrow them!

Oh yummy... sounds really good. Wish it wasn't on your blog, but on a plate for me! lol

Anyways, thank you for the kind comment you left on my blog last week. :)

Sounds yummy. But I'm a much bigger fan of buying the marinade rather than making it these days (I'm sure you can relate... not much time for cooking). My latest favorite is Lawry's Sesame Ginger marinade on salmon. I put the salmon in a plastic ziploc bag with some marinade sauce, shake it, and put it back in the fridge for an hour or so before grilling it. I also used the same marinade on pork chops last week and that was quite tasty as well. For both meats, I like having the extra available at the table for my sauce-crazy husband.

By the way... there was a study done that showed that marinating meat for at least 30 minutes substantially reduced the carcinogens produced by grilling food. Please don't ask me to quote the source... it was on Good Morning America and I was half-watching while supervising breakfast!

Children's Prayers During Meals

The Armistead family taught our children a lovely blessing to sing at the dinner table. It is sung to the tune of the children's classic song, Are You Sleeping?

God our Father
God our Father
Once Again
Once Again
We bow our heads to thank you
Bow our heads to thank you

We love this blessing, and we've recently adapted it to involve younger children and guests. Instead of everyone singing each phrase twice, we sing it as an 'echo prayer'. One child leads the song, starting with the first phrase, "God our Father". The rest of the table echoes. Then the leader leads the second phrase , "once again", before waiting for the table to echo. And so forth, until the whole blessing is sung.

It's an easy way to remind our children (and ourselves) to give thanks to our Provider and Sustainer throughout the day.

Goody Bags for Marriage Retreat - please share your ideas!

Reader Question:
I am in charge of creating 74 goody bags for an upcoming marriage retreat for my church, and I am in desperate need for some frugal, creative ideas on what I could put in these bags. In the past I know people have put little candy bars, a bag of microwave popcorn, a couple of packs of hot chocolate, tea bags etc so I was looking for ideas that might be something similar, but maybe a little different too. Would you have any fun thoughts on this?

A Few Ideas:
Visit - Meredith does a fantastic time being incredibly hospitable on a budget.Our women's retreat coordinators wrapped the following things in a cellophanebag: a mininotebook, a pen, a candle, peppermints, chocolate kisses,and a colored paper quote/scripture. A friend just suggested packing candies that correspond to questions: an almond joy - share a joyful moment in your marriage, a hershey kiss - something about your first kiss, snickers - laughs, lifesavers - when your…

26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers

My two boys LOVE legos, so they naturally end up scattering lego creations and random lego pieces throughout the house.  Last weekend, we converted their closet to be a LEGO WORLD.  Now they can store lego (and knex) pieces in their lego world, they have instructions for all of their kits in a ziplock bag, and they have a place to display their favorite ships.  And I have a mostly lego-free kitchen and living room!!

I just stumbled upon a great article with ideas for storing legos, if you have similar struggles in your house!  Check this out:  26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers
