Lemon Garlic Salmon with Sweet Potato Chips

What better way to come back from my short hiatus than with a delicious meal, and the first I cooked in our new home?  Food is so integral to how we feel, both physically and emotionally, and in some ways, this meal really made our house feel more like a home.

One of the things I liked best about this meal was how colorful it is.  I’m not a professional food photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but this was fun to plate and easy to make look good.

Rob had fun making his look good, too…

I guess it’s fun to turn your food into a face whether you’re 3 or 30.  😀

While there were a lot of elements in this dish, it was surprisingly easy to put together, and only took about 30 minutes from prep to plate.
