STEAMED EDAMAME & BROCCOLI WITH SALAD OVER PAN SEARED SALMON AND BOILED NEW RED POTATOES

Steamed edamame & broccoli with salad over pan seared salmon and boiled new potatoes

Aren’t home-cooked meals the best? As much as I enjoy from time to time going out to eat, I actually like cooking and seeing facial expressions when my family or friends taste food that I just made.
This was a little bit of this and that, and it actually worked very well together. 
I can’t call it really a recipe ’cause it is so simple, but I will try to write something. 
You know the feeling when you want to cook something and don’t know what? Literally speaking, I go with a flow and make or cook stuff that comes closer to my hand. Yeah! That’s exactly how our lunches or dinners are done these days. Recently my friend asked me if I cook everyday? I was smiling a little, because it might be unusual to some, or many, but yes, I cook every single day, and I don’t think that I made the same meal in period let’s say two plus weeks. So it is always something new and different. I think they like having me around eh?! Lol! 

“There is nothing that makes me happier than sitting around the dinner table and talking until the candles are burned down.” ― Madeleine L’Engle, A Circle of Quiet

The salad was “DA bomb”, by the way! 
I love salads; adding, as much as fresh raw ingredients to be packed with nutrition; however overall I think this meal was needless to say very healthy indeed! My fish was fresh, so cooking was done faster, but if you have frozen, just defrost then pan seared. Everything else you can finish very quickly, seriously! 
My dinners are done, really fast; maybe because I multitask, or perhaps because I learned to cook faster so I can do photoshoot, then feed my family -most food bloggers would agree on this. I am doing it in 30 minutes or less for many years, so I have time to shoot and still serve it in a timely manner before they start to complain.  
If you take longer, that is not a problem because we all doing things differently. Some people that I know actually like to take their sweet time, but me… That’s so not me!:)
