I’m kind of stumped on what to talk about today. We’ve been stuck in the house since we got home because of cold and snow and it’s now turned into ice and no one likes to skateboard and scooter (is that a verb?) on ice.
And oh, I know what I’ll tell you about. I’ll tell you about how cold my house was when we got home from vacation.
So when we left Colorado, it was probably in the 50s. And that’s hot if you’re my husband. Hot enough that every time I turned the heat on, he’d walk right behind me and turn it off.
You see where I’m going?
The heat was off for the entire 12 days or however long we were gone. And we happened to come home on the coldest day EVER. I mean, it was snowing in Texas. No one ever told me that it snows in Texas. I was shocked. Anyway, so it was negative 16 or something equally ridiculous when we finally got to Colorado.
And the temp in our house was…
38 degrees. In my house.
Thankfully, it was warm for the majority of the time we were gone so the pipes were okay and all that. I would’ve full-on ugly cried if we had no hot water.
My husband has been on a fish kick lately so I made him this Easy Honey Salmon and now he’s obsessed. And I don’t mind because it’s cooked in an aluminum foil packet so it couldn’t be any easier. Plus it’s one of those recipes that I always have all the ingredients. He ate the entire pound of fish in one meal so it must’ve been pretty good!

Easy Honey Salmon
- 1 pound salmon, cut into 2 - 3 portion-sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
- salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 375F. Grab 3 pieces of aluminum foil, large enough for each piece of salmon. Lay a piece of salmon on each piece.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, thyme, and salt and pepper. Spoon this mixture over each piece of salmon. Fold up the sides of the aluminum foil and fold the top over to close.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and flaky.

oh my goodness, that’s cold. How long did it take to warm the house? Thank goodness nothing froze! … This salmon looks so tasty. I just started eating salmon and looking for great recipes.
Oh my gosh, HOURS. It took me two hours to pick the dog up because the roads were so bad and it was still only 52 when I got back! It was a cold night.
Oh my gosh this looks amazing. I am really trying to get salmon back into regular rotation. Gorgeous photos!
