Paper Flowers.

I have been making paper flowers all day today.

Every second that I could squeeze in a minute.

Tomorrow I am throwing a simple little birthday bash, in the backyard, for my mom and 2 of my sisters.

Wow, they are fun to make! And they are everywhere.

The flowers, not my mom and sisters.

When the girl`s were napping I made 5 of them.

No, I don`t really have time to make them (or to sit here and post on my blog for that matter). But a girl`s gotta have her creative outlets doesn`t she?

(The answer is YES.)

I plan to have a flower in each soup cup and also a string of them over the table.

That is, IF I can get enough made to make a garland. 🙂

CAN YOU BELIEVE the only things you need to make them are: a ball of string, a scissors, and a $1 pack of napkins?

This is what we had for supper. It was SOOO (insert guttural moan) good!

And it is also healthy. How IS that possible?

Here is how you make it.

Slap frozen fillets of Salmon on a baking sheet/pan. Coat with olive oil, lemon pepper seasoning and dill weed.

Bake at 200 degrees until soft and flaky. Between a half hour and an hour?

Pan sear a bag of Asian veggies in a frying pan with equal parts butter and olive oil.

Butter and olive oil should get married- (and have babies!)- they have a great thing going when you put them together!!

Make some chewy brown rice in the microwave. (Double that water to however much brown rice you put in) Cook 5 min at a time, covered. usually takes 25 min? in the microwave.

Add salt and butter to taste.

Mix rice, salmon and vegetables together.

Good luck!

I`m off to make more paper flowers!! Just kidding. 🙂
