DIFFICULTY LEVEL: OY!
Vikki doesn’t like to cook.
Or do laundry.
I guess it helps when you have a live-in who does all of that for you.
But when her live-in gets a Sunday off, Vikki steps up to the plate and reminds her family that she is capable of making a delicious meal… and can load up the dishwasher.
Believe me, if this dish was too difficult, Vikki wouldn’t be making it.
- Ginger (sliced or minced)
- Chopped scallions
- Salmon (large cut - deboned)
- Peanut oil
Wash and dry the salmon. Place scallions and ginger right on top of the salmon. Wrap in tin foil and place in oven for about 20 minutes at 350, until salmon is cooked through. If you are cutting it into portioned sizes, a bit less time in the oven… unless you like your salmon well done.
On the stove top, sauté the ginger and scallions in peanut oil.
How to Plate: Cut salmon into pieces and dress sauce over the salmon and serve! Voila!
I've been so RELAXED while drinking my spa water, I haven't even THOUGHT about cooking!
But I have searched the net for a popular trend in all price ranges-- the ZIP UP.
Here they are:

Often the luxuries in life have to be cut out to make room for necessities. Like food, water, electricity... and shoes.
But if you have to cut out your "spa day" or have no money to go get that massage you really really need, I have a cheap alternative.
No, I don't mean going to that Thai place down the street. The following drink is the one thing that can always keep me close to a state of relaxation-- a refreshing and fancy take on H2O.
- 1 Lemon, sliced
- 1 Lime, sliced
, sliced Orange
- ½ Cucumber, sliced
- Ice cubes (optional)
Add all together, and stir only once.
How to Serve: In a pitcher, pour in water and enjoy. You can jazz up your glasses with a wedge of lemon or cucumber!
