I recently started watching Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix instant and I’m addicted as well. Every night I like to watch 1 or 2 or if I’m bad 3…Good luck because now I’m on season 5 and there’s no slowing down!

Mmmmm…that salmon looks delish! Great dinner!
PS – Last night I made your Funfetti Cupcakes into a cake and I LOVED it! Thanks for an amazing recipe! It’s a family favorite now! :-)

Looks like a balanced, fabulous meal!
And binge watching TV shows is the best. I’m doing that with Mad Men!

Looks delicious.
I stopped watching Grey’s last season. I tend to watch shows once they are out on DVD so I don’t have to stop between episodes

Yum!! I love salmon.

By the way, I bought pork belly at the farmers market yesterday and totally thought of you.

That salmon looks glorious! I wish my Adam could make something besides boxed spaghetti…

OMG, it’s SO easy to get sucked in when you own the series on DVD! haha For us, like a year ago, it was CSI Miami seasons 1-3. We had them all watched in 2 weeks time!! Yikes! But hey, it’s a stress release, right? :)

Heather March 6, 2011 at 8:56 am

Looks delicous! We are getting ready to watch the last season of the Tutors, we wait until it is on dvd, should be fun.

Seasons 1 and 2 of Grey’s are the best!!!! :-)

Exactly what I was going to say! It went downhill from there :(

But – is that your new kitchen!! It looks awesome! (or is that Adam’s place?)

I stopped watching Grey’s after seasons 1 and 2 just because of school work and a busy schedule, but GOOD LUCK is all I can say. Basically, it’s a wonderful excuse to load up on chocolate and wine ;)

Reply

AshleyH March 6, 2011 at 9:20 am

:D I am doing the exact same thing with Grey’s Anatomy right now too! I blew through Season 1 when I had bronchitis and now I’m working through Season two during any spare moment I have. I didn’t start watching the show until I think season 5 so it is nice to get the back story and understand so many parts of the show better.

oh and your lunch looks great :)

That salmon looks PERFECT.

Looks delicious!

P.S. I DREAM of moving out of NYC and having a kitchen like that someday!

Paige @ Moxie and Marmalade March 6, 2011 at 9:45 am

hahaha I do the same thing with TV shows. I go on serious binges and finish the season in a matter of days. It’s the best way to watch TV, in my opinion

Kristen @ Change of Pace March 6, 2011 at 9:50 am

Grey’s is good up until a certain point… You’ll know what I’m talking about when you get there :) Dinner looks amazing… What pinot noir is that?

Kate March 6, 2011 at 9:58 am

Such a great show! S2 is definitely among the best seasons. Glad you’re enjoying it!

Mango Jalapeno tequila marinade! YUM! (my husband and I accidentally spent a whole weekend watching Dexter. It is hard to watch only one episode when you have the whole season!)

Dinner looked fabulous! Salmon is one of my faves!! :-)

Joie March 6, 2011 at 10:23 am

Don’t hate on me, but I sometimes eat salmon like that 7 days a week. I love a good salmon scrubbed with lots of olive oil and topped with garlic spices and avocado. The richness is yum.

If you get addicted to boot camp, try http://www.fitstudio.com — look for BCx. This is a free version of a boot camp program that is local to me and it has completely changed my life from an exercise perspective, I became a runner because I started this boot camp, I lost 20 lbs because of this boot camp, and the confidence I gained, in all areas of my life, amazing — I know that sounds ridiculous, but it is SO true.
Anyway, have fun with it :)

Oh my gosh best meal ever! My boyfriend made cedar plank salmon for me for the first time a few months ago, it was amaaaaazing! Glad you had a fun/delicious night :)

The Mango Jalapeno tequila marinade..omg WHERE did you get that? I HAVE to have it!!

Pinot noir and PB Fudge. I have to have those, too :)

Your new kitchen and new house look fabulous!! Congrats for getting settled in! I read on twitter I think a couple days ago you came home to an ant infestation. Hope that’s all handled. Ants and California in the spring…I hate that combination!

8 episodes, haha. Love it. I’m the same way … that’s the negative side to having seasons of show’s on DVD/Instant Netflix. It’s nice that you don’t have to wait to see what happens next, but then it’s like a continuously long movie that never seems to ever end and sucks away your life. We spent like the whole weekend watching season one of a show once and were left with a huge cliffhanger only to realize they never came out with any more seasons … it was a sad day.

I LOVE salmon. I haven’t had it in such a long time, and I always feel “lighter” or something after having it haha.

Marie March 6, 2011 at 2:03 pm

Holy monkeys, that salmon looks absolutely fabulous! Speaking of salmon, I once cook some in my dishwasher, of all places, and it was surprisingly awesome. So tender. I also have some potlatch seasonin that I got at Williams Sonoman that is salmon’s best friend. It would seem that I’m slightly salmon obsessed.

Sarah @ The Rounded Teaspoon March 6, 2011 at 2:19 pm

Dude,
That salmon looks amazing. More importantly, I heard an interview with the author of The Tiger’s Wife today. She was super-interesting and is called one of the best writers under 40 by The New Yorker. This is her first book, which I’ve just preordered. As a fellow voracious reader, I thought I’d recommend.

Totally don’t even like Grey’s but when it’s on, all of a sudden three hours have passed and I have no idea what happened. It just does that to people.

Dinner looks fantastic and Grey’s can become such an addiction! I remember when I finally got into the show I went out every week and bought a new season until I was all caught up.

I’m going out to buy a cedar plank just to make that salmon! And I was hopelessly addicted to Gossip Girl when I first discovered it last year and was catching up on the series.

Really, it’s okay to become a Grey’s addict. The show pretty much rules my life. I sometimes forget the show is not real. It’s bad.
