Isla had her last day of school today! It was bittersweet- her teachers this year were so wonderful and such a good fit for her. We will definitely miss Miss Karen and Miss Vida! Also bittersweet: that I spent 3 hours of my last day “off” for the next three months sitting at the Toyota service department. Ughhhhhhh. But at least now my inspection sticker is legal. So there’s THAT.
Ok so here’s part 2 of last night’s dinner. As you know, I made the pineapple-teriyaki salmon, which was fab. A few weeks ago I bookmarked this recipe for A Pinch of Yum’s 5 minute magic green sauce. We weirdly always have pistachios on hand (one of the few things Isla will eat), plus avocados and limes… and the rest was easy to gather: cilantro, parsley, jalapeno.
Literally 5 minutes later, this:
I actually added more lime juice and a splash of red wine vinegar, because I just always crave more acidity. But this was really good! Last night I tossed some with cold zucchini noodles to make a quick, random salad with dinner:
Per the recipe, this sauce would also be great as a dip or a marinade. Lots of possibilities!
Happy Memorial Day weekend everybody!! I’ll be back on Tuesday! Which just happens to be my birthday! Just saying!
