This is what we’re having tonight – tomato soup over pastry, honey mustard salmon and roasted brussel sprouts. This will probably cost over $100 if the five of us were to order the same thing at a restaurant. Today, everything costs around $25. Looks like a lot of work, but really not. IMG_0992

In the past, I’ve tried making my own tomato soup. Now that took a lot of work. On weeknights, store bought tomato soup (from Trader Joe’s) will do the trick. We bought a bag of wild salmon from Costco. I used the honey mustard marinade and baked it for 400 degrees (right after the pastry soup was done). This took an hour or so before it was served on the table. I loved it how Ah Lo took his lovely time and enjoyed every bit of it!
