What's for dinner

I have recently rediscovered the salmon at Costco.
I offer you 2 great & healthy salmon meal ideas.

1) Compliments of Colby - Rub and drench the salmon in pesto (costco). Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes until it begins to flake a bit. And that's it. Enjoy. (Did I do okay, Colby?)

2) Mix 1/4 cup butter (or substitute olive oil), 1/4 c. soy sauce, 1/2 T Worchestershire sauce, 1/2 t garlic powder and add 1.5 lbs salmon (1/2 of bag). Coat well. Cook on BBQ grill on heavy duty aluminum foil. Baste occasionally with leftover sauce. Cook until juices are white or until salmon starts to flake. Les and I coated it with pepper when it was done, which we thought made it taste just right.

Both are great served with steamed asparagus.

Go Jazz!

I better write this soon before the game tonight... we have Loved watching the very intense Jazz games this last week.  The Jazz are 2-2 with the Lakers and tonight's game is in LA.  Yikes!

On Monday night Les and I decided to go to the Gateway for some errands/dinner.   I was just browsing around Urban Outfitters when I happened to run into Kyle Korver.  In the past I have proven to be very un-cool around "famous" people.  So I am trying to overcome this flaw.  I non-chalantly walked over to him and said: (conversation almost verbatim)
       "I have a question - are you Dutch?"  
He said "Yes, I'm part Dutch."
"I'm Dutch too, and my Grandma told me that in Dutch your last name means 'basket-maker'."
He laughed and said "Yeah, it does."
"Good, because I've been telling people that, and sometimes my Grandma is silly and I don't know if she is being serious." Small pause  "Nice to see you."  And then I gave him my number and walked away.  not.

By the way, isn't this picture of him pimp?  And do you think he took it himself?

I'm sad that Gus wasn't with me.  At that moment Les had him in a different store.  Gus would have freaked out to meet an actual Jazz player.  He is obsessed with basketball - in case you haven't already seen the video.

P.S. On our way home from the Gateway we noticed that the marquee of The Depot read "Kobe is in town, hide your women."
