Went hiking for the first time in forever near Rose Canyon Lake and had a blast! It was so amazing to be out in nature on a beautiful sunny day. Even got lost, and you know what? Had fun doing that, too. We were out there for about 2 and a half hours – not in any rush, took lots of breaks, and took lots of pictures. Afterwards, I was exhausteddddd. Ate this fantastic lunch then passed out for a 2 hours. Felt good.

For the salmon: seasoned simply with salt, pepper, and canola oil – then seared for a about 4 minutes on each side in a hot cast iron skillet

For the kale salad:

Tuscan Kale (Trader Joe’s)

Brown rice

Broccoli slaw (Trader Joe’s)

small grape tomatoes

raisins

All tossed together with lemon juice and olive oil to taste

Garlic fries from Trader Joe’s and followed the package instructions
