Monday Madness… Meal Planning & a little Help from Club House

Sharing is caring!

As the kids have return to school, we start ramping up for another year of activities…well, technically, we never stopped during the summer but now it is getting a bit more complicated.  We now find ourselves in some sort of driving hell on Monday nights.  Son to Seikido at 6:15 pm, one daughter to Volleyball at 7 pm our eldest daughter to dance at 7:30 then pick-up at 7:30 (yes, same time as drop off of another), 8:30 and 9 pm…with three kids and two parents we are outnumbered!
So having dinner on the table and consumed by 5:45 pm is imperative.  This is when I need to rely on my trusty Meal Planning skills to make it all happen.
Since Monday is not a babysitting night (girls now have a share-job babysitting the neighbour’s kids), they are responsible to put dinner together… or at least do some of the leg work.
So one makes rice (potatoes, pasta, couscou), the other preps the vegetables and I get the salmon ready.  There can be no easier meal to prepare then fresh salmon.  We buy ours at Costco.  Always tastes great and the stock it everyday so it is always fresh.

My favourite tool in the kitchen (as many of you already know) is Club House Recipe Inspiration packs.  They give you all the spices pre-measured and all you have to do is add a few ingredients – next thing you know, you’re a gourmet chef.
You too can make this delicious salmon in a few easy steps:
1. Pick up Club House Recipe Inspiration – Asian Sesame Salmon at any grocery store in the spice aisle.
2. Open each packet into a measuring cup.

3. Add 2 Tbsp. of soya sauce and 1/3 cup of honey.

Tidy Tip: I have a special trick to make sure that the honey does not stick to the measuring cup: spray it with Pam and the honey just slide out!
4. Once you have everything mixed together, slather that sauce all over the salmon and bake it at 375 degrees for 30 minutes…(I would check it around 20 minutes.  If it is almost done, take it out of the oven and let it sit for a few minutes.

The taste is delicious and oh so very quick and easy!  This salmon didn’t last for long…kids loved it!
