A good and easy dinner

The diet changes that we've made recently have required more meal planning and eating in than has been our custom. But we're starting to hit our stride now that we're settling into our house. I've been planning dinners a week at a time. And while the whole thing means more cooking, I've found a few ways to cut some time off of preparation and make some dinners especially easy.

Tonight's dinner took less than 15 minutes. We had salmon from Trader Joe's. It was already marinated; I just had to put it in the fridge yesterday to defrost and then pan-cooked it in about 12 minutes. On the side was some brown rice I cooked last night (in half water and half vegetable broth, with a splash of olive oil) and a frozen vegetable medley (an organic "California" mix with carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and yellow zucchini). Delicious, healthy, and simple!
