Days Off

Well it's finally the weekend and time to start to get ready for winter. Even though it has been unseasonably warm one morning I'm going to wake up to snow. It frosted slightly last night and the geese are heading south so it's right around the corner.

Wishing For Snow

This is my least favorite time in Alaska. All the leaves are gone the grasses are brown and it usually rains a lot. I love the first snow of the year. I covers up all this mess and the air smells so clean and it's visually pleasing to the eye. But it looks like I'm going to have to wait awhile as it has only frosted twice since last month.

Tinfoil Salmon

I get asked every day what is the simplest and the best way to cook salmon. I have found that baking salmon tends to dry it out unless it is sealed very tightly in a container.
I take a nice fresh piece of salmon and lay it on a piece of foil and salt and pepper it. I also like a little garlic powder, a pat of butter,a slice of onion and a teaspoon of white wine. Seal the foil very well and bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Enjoy!
