2 large zuchinni
2 large yellow squash
1 red onion
1 red bell pepper
1 bunch shallots

1 lemon juiced
2tbsp  dijion mustard
olive oil
salt and pepper

Make the marinade for fish first
Wisk all ingredients into a bowl and then place the fish in a ziplock bag and pour mixture into bag. Set inside fridge for 45min-1hr (all day if you want a strong flavor-less time if your in a hurry)

Cut veggies into bite size chunks, onions and pepper can be sliced. shallots you can cut ends and tops off and slice the "whiter part" into slices
take the liquid ingredients and and stir together. Pour over veggies
Place in a baking dish and cook on 375 for 20-45 min (depends on oven type and your desired texture

In a hot pan add a little olive oil and pan sear the salmon on both sides. lower heat to low and cover. Cook for about 4-5 minutes pending thickness

Serve with a slice of lemon and the veggies.. Taste great with brown rice as well!

Its baseball season in Texas!!

There is one thing, well a few things really, that we look forward to in April and that is Opening day of the Rangers ball season. Brent and I have attended the last 2 years but unfortunately could not make it today. Next year we WILL attend! Great game to the Rangers they played hard! We are looking forward to taking the kids plus 2 of Bray's friends for his birthday to Saturday's game. Its the ALCS Ring ceremony tomorrow as well!

This past season we were extremely fortunate to be able to attend MULTIPLE games with our kiddos and just the 2 of us. I was pregnant with Marshall for most of the season BUT while in the hospital I bought 2 tickets the the game that was 2 weeks away :) Marshall attended his first major league baseball game at the ripe ol' age of 2 weeks (WIN)! Youngest baseball fan in the ballpark! We followed that game up with the ALCS playoff game (WIN) and then with an ALCS championship game (WIN). Then for the FIRST time in franchise history we were able to take all of the kids plus my father and grandfather to a World Series game (WIN). It was the most amazing things I have ever experienced. The ambiance was unbelievable. The fans were loud and proud. They guys took their only win of the series that night and we were there.

We are looking forward to another amazing season of Texas baseball. Will be posting lots of pics throughout the season of our mini baseball fans~

Love to all~
