Spiced Brown Sugar Salmon

Spiced Brown Sugar Salmon

Creating a meal plan isn’t particularly exciting news but the benefits of the trusty, little schedule will help you save time in the kitchen, money as well as cut down on food waste. (After all, there’s a reason we devoted a section to it in our book The School Year Survival Cookbook!) We recently fell off the meal plan wagon when summer started. I think we were so excited that we could finally live an unschedules, fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants-life that we took it too far and tossed our meal planning as well. As a result, I felt like my old, pre-kid self standing around hungry at 6pm wondering what to do, except this time there was a small, hungry body with me! I had to bring some structure back to my life so the first thing I did was to start my meal planning again. I instantly threw this new recipe down on the plan.  As dinners go, this Spiced Brown Sugar Salmon is gold. No marinade. Barely any prep. Quick cooking. What more can you ask for on a summer’s eve? You’re right?! Ice cream! Ice cream is what you could as for on a summer’s eve, so I highly recommend you make this and then eat ice cream. Those are the rules.
