As inspiration form the neighbor boys down the street, we decided to give Tanner a “Summer Haircut”. We decided he looks pretty good with a buzz!
We had a hard week with Tanner last week. He is trying to forge his independence. Luckily, he is much better this week! One thing we changed (thanks to Trent’s idea) was his bed time routine. He used to stay up until 9:00-:9:30 reading in bed, but now we give him 20 min, and then the lights go out. He goes to sleep right away, and has even slept in a little!
Although he has been a little naughty, he has had some cute moments. To try and talk him into his haircut, we told him he would look like his friends down the street. As soon as he was done, we wanted to run over there and show them! On Saturday we bought some salmon to have for a few meals. Tanner is obsessed with eating fish and wanted to have it for his quiet time snack on Sunday. We didn’t let him, but we did have it for dinner on Monday. He ate at least half the portion we cooked, he just tanked it. I never knew a kid who could down fish like that! Tonight when I was putting him to bed, he was jumping off his bed saying ” Aiiirrrr, Tanner!” I don’t know where he got that from, maybe from watching basketball with Dad.
While I am at it, here is my salmon recipe. I adapted it from another recipe and it is going in the cookbook.
½ pound linguini
2 TBS olive oil
1 large clove garlic minced
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 lb salmon fillets
3 TBS Capers
2 TBS lemon juice
1 TBS dried basil
Cook pasta as to package directions. When done, toss with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Then, heat a pan to medium-high heat with 1 TBS olive oil. Season salmon with salt and pepper then cook both sides for 2 min, depending on thickness. When salmon is finished, add capers, lemon juice and basil to pasta. Serve salmon portions over bed of pasta, top with Parmesan cheese.
The salmon we got is from Costco in the fresh seafood section. It will easily make three meals for us, and it was only $11. A inexpensive way to eat nice!
