De-Stressing the Stress

Today's healthy food recipe is inspired by A Stressful Day.

A kid-friendly seafood restaurant
A VERY understanding husband or friend
A crappy camera phone to document your experience

Begin by ordering FANCY pre-dinner drinks.

A beer for your husband...

 ...a dragonfly mojito (in a classy beer mug)* for yourself.

While enjoying drinks and adult conversation, distract child with crayons and Star Wars Legos.

Savor every last calorie and bite of cedar plank salmon with shrimp and broccoli.

When finished, top off the night with a delicious soy chai from Starbucks.

Stress levels should wane within a few hours.

*feel free to substitute wine, gin, vodka or really any alcoholic beverage in place of mojito

That salmon (and everything on top of it) look delish. I'd substitute a bottle of wine.

I try a similar recipe a few times a week! And can I substitute Diet Pepsi? ; )

Oh yeah, that would do it. Stress relieved.

Sounds like the perfect remedy for stress :)

I'd take wine, but I do like a good mojito. The salmon looks delicious!

My husband rolled in last night, this sounds like a perfect evening. And that salmon looked great!
Another question. How does a dragonfly mojito differ from a regular one? I'm a mojito fan. And inquiring minds want to know!

That was the prefect way to end the day. Dinner looked delicious. It's cracking me up that the beer came in a goblet but the mojito came in a beer mug. LOL.

Stop by the blog if you can. We're celebrating memories.
