The weather remains wonderful! Hopefully, this weather will continue through Saturday and provide an excellent environment for Hometown Christmas. For details on this event, see the Calendar of North State Events.

For dinner last evening, I grilled large salmon fillets on the indoor grill and poached sugar snap peas with slivered white onion and slivered Roma tomatoes. All was seasoned with Red Monkey Lemon Pepper Spice. I built a tray from heavy-duty aluminum foil, doubled. I sprayed this with Pam olive oil spray. The tray allowed about 1" around it for the heat to convex from the cooking element. I cooked the salmon skin-side down and did not touch it until it was done. I built a dome from another piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil so that the heat would gather and convex about the salmon and cook thoroughly. A nice glaze appeared on the outside, and the inside was juicy and moist. It was a delightful meal.
