après skiing that no matter how good or bad the conditions were that day, you'll always find someone who will tell you that you should have been there yesterday, or last weekend. We were told we were a week late for beautiful Spring skiing, and, perhaps, a week early...?
The snow turned to rain, also squashing any hope of Sunday skiing. There was no repeat of the April 15, 2007 storm that brought us a surprising 4 plus feet.
Maple-Pepper SalmonWe also had the chance to go to American Flatbread in Waitsfield on Friday night, where they not only have amazing pizza ("flatbread"), but a mysteriously wonderful salad. The salad itself is simple- mixed greens, celery, and shredded carrots. We were once told the dressing contains a homemade organic raspberry vinegar, orange juice, sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, shallots and maple syrup. I'm going to play around and see if I can come close to replicating it. I'll report back.
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 lb salmon fillet
lots of freshly ground black pepper
Mix the syrup and soy sauce in a large Ziploc, add the salmon and marinate for 24 hours. Coat the top with plenty of freshly ground black pepper and grill, or bake on a cookie sheet at 450, for 10 minutes.
