What's for dinner?

I did a pair of posts about a month ago suggesting some options for breakfast and lunch. Now, here's an easy and great dinner for after a good workout or long day. In the mood for a sweet potato, but don't have an hour and a half to bake one? Try this.

Sweet Potato Fries

2 small sweet potatoes (frenched)
1 tblsp. olive oil
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. sea salt

Preheat oven to 400F. Toss potatoes in olive oil and spices and coat evenly. Place skin side down on a aluminum baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes. Set oven to broil for an additional 4 to 5 minutes.


2 C broccoli
2 tsp. butter

Set a pot of water on the stove on high and bring to a boil. Place broccoli in a colander and create a steamer by placing the colander over the pot of boiling water. Steam uncovered for about 8 minutes. Transfer broccoli to a hot pan with broccoli. Cook until butter melts and coats broccoli evenly.

Orange Dill Salmon

1 large salmon fillet (thawed from frozen)
1 tsp. sea salt.
2 tsp. dill
1 tsp. pepper
juice from 1/2 an orange
2 tblsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 400F. Coat salmon in olive oil, spices, and orange juice. Place on a broil pan skin side down. Bake for about 25 minutes until thoroughly cooked and flaky.

That's it! Get those potatoes goiand salmon going while the oven preheats. Get them in the oven. Walk away for 20 minutes then come back and work on your broccoli. You've got a fantastic meal in about 35 minutes.
