stephmodo: Summer Dinner Swap

Summer Dinner Swap

• 02 August 2007

For the past few years my neighbor Kate and I have been swapping dinners on and off. Just a few weeks ago we decided to resume this wonderful tradition. This is what I made for her family this week:

Seared Herbed Salmon
Roasted Potatoes with Fresh Herbs
Fresh Corn Salad
Garden Salad
Banana Cream Pie for dessert (yes I made another one...)

I can't wait to see what she brings next week! You guys should do this with your friends/neighbors too! It takes minimal effort to simply double the meal you are already preparing for your own family.

Caveat: To get that crispy crust on the outside of the salmon, put a few tablespoons of olive oil in a cast iron pan and turn the heat to medium high for a few minutes. Then place the fillets in the pan and cook for about 4 minutes on each side.


  1. I love this! When we lived in Charlottesville, VA we did this with 5 friends!! We would just have the others pick up the meal at our house. It was awesome--like a restaurant every night, and you barely had any dishes! I miss is so much now that we have moved.

  2. Now THAT is a great idea!

  3. I hope you post what you recieve next week. What fun for you and your neighbor.

  4. Wow, what a fantastic cook you are.


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
