Goldi-lox and the Two Hungry Bears
It is so easy to run through the drive-through when hunger gets the best of you. But, in honor of Earth Day, I decided to buck the urge and think up a healthy, quick alternative for the hunger bug.
I love to brainstorm ideas for new dishes. I am guilty of falling into the rut of cooking the same old things over and over. Sometimes you forget the endless possibilities out there. Since starting this blog I have been inspired to create more new and exciting dishes in an attempt to bring the joy back to eating at home.
While driving to Harry’s Farmers Market I began my mental grocery list…it had to be quick, I wanted it to be healthy and of course it had to be yummy! I decided on Salmon lox served on toasted whole wheat english muffins with a garlic-dill cream cheese spread and capers.
Did I have a recipe? Of course not, I told you…I am a sniff and taste kind of cook. But I can share with you some of my delicious and fresh ingredients in case you get the urge to create a little goldi-lox for yourself. I started with salmon lox, sustainably farm-raised with no antibiotics or hormones.
Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder helped out in making the cream cheese spread. He began by softening the cream cheese and then added a sprinkling of dried dill and a dash of garlic salt.
For a fresh, simple side dish I picked up some bright red tomatoes ripened on the vine and grown with no pesticides and a couple of zucchini squash.
