Baked Dijon Salmon
I don't like salmon. Luis loved this recipe. I am looking forward to making it for him again. He liked it so much that he started eating it before his lunch time. He had to restrain himself from eating it all. 2/11/2011 I made this for Luis again. Central Market had Yukon Keta salmon for $8.49/lb which was a sale price. (8) fillets cost $22.92. I laid out all the ingredients and measuring cups to make sure that we had everything. I had Organic Dijon mustard and chopped pecans left over from the last time i made this. I follow the advice of others and only used (1) Tbsp of honey each time. I used Italian seasoned Progresso bread crumbs. I had to buy fresh Italian flat leaf parsley and salmon from Central Market. I spread the thick honey mustard sauce on w/ a spatula onto each fillet, then used tongs to take it out of this goo, then laid it into a 4 Qt Oxo bowl of the bread crumb mixture and spooned and patted the crumbs over the fillets, then used the tongs to put each fillet into (2) different cast iron skillets that had been oiled. I cooked the fillets approx (12) minutes b/c our gas oven runs hot and does not have temperature control. Since the cast iron skillets hold the heat and the food continues to cook this was enuf time. I woke Luis up to eat the salmon and he really enjoyed it. I wish I liked salmon, but I love fixing it for Luis:) This is a good lunch dish for Luis. He never brings it back home, unlike the Tuna casserole dish.

World's Best Lasagna
This pasta sauce is excellent. We made it for pasta sauce an were so impressed. The fennel seeds really add greatly to the flavor and this was just w/ hamburger meat. I cant wait to make this recipe in its entirety and enjoy it. I will go to Whole foods for the meats and Central Market for the vegetables.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch
We made this twice. The first time we were so impressed. The second time we were bored w/ it so I froze part and the other part just sits in the refrigerator. It is kinda boring. It takes time to make the roux. We are not just "dying" to make it again soon. Canned mushrooms help this dish even for those who are not mushroom lovers. Luis puts lot of Tapatio hot sauce on this dish to eat it even though we put habeneros in the mix. This dish has been tying up too many plastic lunch portables. Luis & I are gonna have to bite the bullet and eat it to have more dishes available.
