Back from vacation and back to cooking!

I've been looking forward to making the recipes on this month's Kitchen Play's Progressive Menu. This month's sponsor is the Cherry Marketing Institute. My only real experience with cherries is eating them raw and spitting out the pit! This is true. I promise. I am not a cherry pie fan, but you can give me a raw cherry any day of the week.

This family loves salmon so it seemed natural to try the entree first. This recipe really got me out of my grilled salmon rut.

The Tart Cherry Salsa, complete with one whole jalapeño, was out of this world! By the way, do you ever wonder what it looks like around here while I'm preparing supper? There you have it, math homework and Polly Pocket right next to Mommy's sharp knife.

The salsa, paired with a salmon filet was simple perfection. I added apples, cherries and swiss cheese on a bamboo skewer for the children's delight. It was fun!

The deadline for Kitchen Play's menu this month has been extended to March 11th, so you still have time to participate! You really should give it a try!
