Happy last week Friday of February! I’ve been home on “vacation” this week and even though I didn’t go anywhere I’ve had a pretty nice week at home. This week’s finds include a yummy salmon topper, a trip to the museum, a fun website and a movie night recommendation.
Warm Olive and Caper Vinaigrette
I made a really yummy salmon dish on Sunday. I made my usually sous vide salmon with lemon and dill but I added a vinaigrette that I saw from Milk Street. I’m telling you, if you don’t subscribe to this magazine/website you are missing out (thanks Meghan!) The vinaigrette upped my salmon game and I highly recommend it. Ingredients: juice and zest from half a lemon, 1 cup pimento stuffed green olives (chopped), 1/4 cup drained capers (chopped), 1/4 cup olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Directions: In a small saucepan over medium heat combine all ingredients except the juice and zest. Cook for about 2 minutes, it will start to sizzle a little. Add lemon juice and cook, stirring until warm. Mix in zest, cover and set aside until using. This makes enough for 4 salmon filets. SO good!
The Portland Museum of Art
The PMA opened its doors back up after a 6 week break and I was able to visit on Wednesday. The current exhibitions are called “North Atlantic Triennial” and “Interaction of Color.” The pieces were really interesting and if you are in the Portland, Maine area I highly recommend a visit.
I just got done filling my cart with Punky Brewster stickers, Super Mario fridge magnets and bunch of nostalgic greeting cards. This website has the quirkiest gifts and I love the 80s & 90s page. If you’re looking for some Shady Pines socks or a mid century retro designs coloring book you need to check this site out. Oh and the Care Bears puzzle, I think I’ll add to cart too.
Who You Gonna Call?
Ghostbusters! Speaking of nostalgia…we watched Ghostbusters: Afterlife this week and absolutely loved it. I felt like we were watching an old school 80s movie about a group of funny and quite capable kids who end up saving the world. If you’re a fan of the classic Ghostbuster movies you should give it a watch, you won’t be sorry. Also, did you know that Janine from Ghostbusters (Annie Potts) is also Sheldon’s Meemaw on Young Sheldon? My mind was blown.
I hope you had a great week and have a fabulous weekend!
