We had a crazy interrupted night, both me and the hubby had doctor’s appointments, he’s sick and contagious so he couldn’t be entrusted with dinner. That means they had to wait for me to make dinner and like usual the doctor’s office was about a ½ an hour behind schedule. That’s why I picked this recipe for tonight. It would be relatively quick and easy.

The original recipe only served 2, to ensure I had enough to feed them all, I bought 1½ lbs. of salmon and used 4 cups of tomatoes. The tomatoes were frozen Juliets that we had harvested at a friends organic farm in August. I left them thaw on the counter before tossing them with the seasonings.

This was a very mild dinner, it would be excellent in the summer time. I would probably switch out the thyme for something different the next time, my youngest didn’t like the “pokey things”.

I have to give credit to my oldest son, I had to have him take the “tomato toss” picture. I figure I’ll have to teach one of them how to take pictures for me at some point.
