Fall Days

I got lucky today! Rob and I had a rare day off together ~ I slept till 9:30, waking up to the smell of bacon (mmmm bacon). Rob made me a HUGE breakfast ( I didn't actually eat ALL of that bacon>)

After breakfast, we ran some errands; I went to the library for the first time in 4 months (so glad the strike is over). The weather was gorgeous, crisp and clear. All the leaves are turning too. I love this time of year...

In the late afternoon we watched a movie together, napped and generally luxuriated in our not working state.

The plan for dinner was simple ~ salmon, rice, salad. But while in the market, we saw the most beautiful chanterelles, so I had to grab some of those.
Unfortunately, as I started to prepare dinner, I discovered that the salmon was less than fresh smelling. Change of tack; I marinated the salmon with olive oil, lemon and tarragon. The mushrooms were sauteed with tarragon, butter and white wine, then I made a cream sauce and added the mushroom mixture to it, before spooning it over the cooked salmon.

What a wonderful day! I love when LB makes breakfasts like that (though I have to confess that I might have eaten all that bacon...). And despite the not-so-fresh salmon, it sounds like you were able to form it into a lovely, seasonal dinner!
