Roasted salmon: I can ever get enough of it.

We have a few favorite, but salmon is always our run to for dinner.

Last night we had fun putting together something new.

With our backyard grapefruits ready to be enjoyed and a tree full, what a better occasion to enjoy them at dinner time too.

Easy put together sauce, just make sure that none of the membrane of the grapefruit are in the sauce.

After the pulp is removed, squeeze the juice out and discard. The membrane not only it gives it a bitter flavor, but they are no fun to eat.

Salad with Champagne dressing and smashed fried potatoes as a side dish.
Lovely combination put together in less than 40 minutes.

Start with the potatoes as they take the longest to cook.
