Burn 'em up, Move 'em out, Rawhide!

So as some of you may know I've had a difficult time losing my baby weight. Ive tried a few things and finally happened upon something that's been working for me. My friend Aubrey suggested a diet she had done some years ago. It's called The New Beverly Hills Diet, haha! And guess what, it works. Aside from my canker sores and raw mouth from all the pineapple I've been eating there's not a single down side. :) I've lost 12lbs so far and feel great although I'd like to lose about double that.

Now, what's strange is that as I've been on this diet I've actually renewed my love for cooking. This is strange because I can't even eat or try most of the stuff I've been cooking! For some reason I've been obsessed and pouring myself over recipes, trying and tweaking to Rob's delight. I plan for days all of the fun concoctions I want to create. Soy Glazed Salmon, Chicken Madiera, Sarah's amazing burgers, cookies, spicy Moo Goo Gai Pan, muffins, breads, Submarine pasta, etc. So I thought I post one of Rob's favorites up to now.

I made him a glazed salmon with soy sauce, fresh ginger, garlic, and brown sugar. Then I made a mango salsa. Topping it off with sesame rice, asparagus, and wonton strips. It was interesting and Rob said it was the best thing I've ever made him.

Me trying to get a good pic of it...this makes it look messy, I'm really not a photographer. :)
The patronizing "mmmmmm" Rob gave me when I asked him to show me how much he liked it.
