Hawaiian Delight

So I got an email from my dad reminding me to update my blog. I have been so busy since school started and also TV shows started. Today was a little crazy at work, we had our usual Rehab Meeting before seeing patients. We had 17 PT Evals today. 17!! at 830 am. Of course PT referrals keep coming in til 3:00 pm. It was crazy. Ever since MLK ( Martin Luther King Hospital) closed we have been busier. NOT COMPLAINING!! Anyways, then we had the Mish for dinner tonight. We had Hawaiian Delight. Shrimp and Pineapple Fried Rice, Teriyaki Salmon with Mango Salsa ..YUM-OH! The boys helped me set the table and make the yummy Vanilla cake with whipped topping . UMMMMM...Here's the recipe from Meiling Dawson

4 cups cold cooked white rice

Combine mango and the remaining ingredients

Marinate salmon for 1-2 hrs in teriyaki sauce. Heat grill to medium high and coat with non stick cooking spray. Lay salmon on barbecue. Close and cook for 4 - 5mins until sear marks are visible. Rotate 45 deg. and repeat. Flip salmon when criss cross pattern is visible. Cook until firm and done.

Then the boys and I helped me bake the cake and set the table. It surely was a fun night. I have to go now. Season Premier for some of my fave shows is starting tonight.
