maple- glazed salmon w/ pineapple salsa

after an amazing weekend away with one of the best girls i know, i came home to my 3 favourites & a fur mutt.
being greeted at the door with hugs and 'i missed you mom' was pretty great, until i walked in the kitchen to a chilled glass of rose, and an amazing dinner marinating in the fridge, a girl couldn't ask for more.
but then the ice cream came...
a winning weekend all around.
