Playbook Challenge: Roasted Salmon and Asparagus with Spicy Mayo and Chives

Day 2 of  Dinner: The Playbook Challenge. This was unbelievably satisfying. It’s one of those dishes that’s more than the sum of it’s parts. I served it with couscous drizzled with vinaigrette, and a green salad with avocado and dried currants.  We’ve been trying, trying, trying to eat more cleanly… I lie awake at night planning meals, imagining myself rejecting a grilled cheese in favor of some superfoods salad that’s bursting with nutrients. But the reality, is of course, different when I wake up and face the day.  Not to be hyperbolic, (but let’s face it: it’s sort of my forte), I think this recipe could get us on course. It’s really that good.  (Photo courtesy of John, who was equally satisfied!)

BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
