“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its’s own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”                   1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLTimage1-3.jpeg

Ingredients:

Salmon

◦2 six or seven oz pieces salmon (I find Sockeye can be dry and taste more fishy. My favorites are Wild Alaskan or Coho salmon)

◦4 lemon slices

◦Drizzle of Olive oil

Sweet Potato Wedges

◦2 medium sweet potatoes

◦Cumin

◦Olive oil

◦Himalayan sea salt

Broccolini

◦Himalayan sea salt

◦Pepper

◦Garlic powder

◦Olive oil

Avocado Herb Dip

1 Avocado

1 Lemon

Himalayan sea salt

Any fresh or dried herb (I chose fresh basil)

Olive Oil

Steps:

Sweet Potatoes

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2.Cut sweet potatoes into wedges

3.Coat wedges with olive oil, salt, and cumin

4.Bake in the oven for about 35-45 minutes or until golden brown

Salmon

1.Coat top of the salmon with olive oil then sprinkle with salt, and place 2 lemon slices on each piece

2.Bake in the oven (at 400) for about 15 minutes

Broccolini

1.Sprinkle olive oil, salt, and garlic powder on the broccolini

2.Bake in the oven  (at 400) for about 10-15 minutes until crispy

Placing items in the oven all at once is possible but will increase cook time, so watch closely!

Avocado Herb Dip

1.Add 1 avocado, juice of one lemon, 1/4 cup of olive oil (exchange for water if oil-free), 4 large basil leaves (or another herb you like) salt to taste and blend. If needed, thin with 2 Tbs of water at a time.
