So something you should know about me is that I hate practical jokes. I can’t even watch hidden camera shows, they make me want to vomit. So I have never been a huge fan of April Fool’s Day. I would occasionally play jokes on my brothers because I never felt bad for them. Ha! I do enjoy harmless little jokes, so here is what I did for my kids on April 1st.
I found the idea on Pinterest to make brownies (brown E’s), but I also made cookies (cook E’s). Get it they have a little chef hat on, so they’re cooks. My kids got it right off the bat and they thought it was hilarious.
My daughter didn’t get the memo that these were pretend treats, she still thought they were pretty tasty.
My kids then begged for real cookies and brownies so I guess the joke was on me.
Well, on to my recipe. No April Fooling, we love salmon at our house and eat it regularly. We have a few recipes that we love, but last time I went to make salmon I didn’t have all the ingredients for the regulars so I looked up something new. This salmon has a light, but flavorful butter sauce that makes for a delicious melt-in-your-mouth salmon. I used dried dill for my fish because that’s what I had, but it would probably be even better with fresh. My husband and kids loved this salmon and were sad that I didn’t make enough for seconds! Best of all, this dish is quick and easy.
