Can you believe it? It is snowing this morning. The ground is warm, though, so nothing is sticking. The temp is 36*. It’s just a bizarre picture out the kitchen window…heavy snowflakes falling on redbud trees in full bloom and on flower beds brimming with daffodils.
Monday is sometimes a late night for DH, so I try to plan something quick or something that can wait. Salmon is wonderful, as it can bake in about 12-15 minutes. If DH calls before he leaves work, supper is just a few minutes from the table when he walks in the door.

baby baked potatoes (These can be prepared ahead of time and popped back in the oven to reheat as the salmon cooks.)
Chicken Cordon Bleu

Tilapia with Parmesan Crust
I put the fish in a single layer on a baking pan lined with no-stick foil sprayed with cooking spray.
Drizzle the fish with lemon juice if you like, or add some to the Parmesan/mayo mixture.
Mix 1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese and 3 T. light mayonnaise and spread on fish.
Mix 1/2 c. Italian bread crumbs, 1 T. basil, 1 T. oregano, 1 tsp. dry onion flakes, salt/pepper and sprinkle it over the fish.
Bake at 400*F for 10-15 minutes, depending on how many fillets you are using and how thick they are.
