Horseradish Encrusted Salmon $7.99

Well I was having blogger trouble today, so this recipe is going up long after I had the Salmon for dinner, and its a good thing because not only did I not post recipe before I made it, I also couldnt get a good picture because my not so hightech camera was out of focus and I, being not so hightech, couldnt figuire out how to adjust it. Michael, my 11 year old, usually adjusts my camera while playing with his I touch, watching a Baseball game, and dribbling a basketball, all at the same time. That brings me to a sadder topic, Michael who just finished the 5th grade(ugh!! where did the years go?) had his first, well technically second, boy girl party. It is actually his second, but the first doesnt count because it was last year when he was still like "girls-yuck !". He never utters that word now in reference to girls. He says things like- and very nonchalantly, I might add "oh, girls going to the party, thats cool". Today when I dropped him and his buddies off at the party, he didnt give me his usual "bye mom, I love you", it was more like "hey, see ya later", and at that, he was off, to a world I remember like it was yesterday, and a world where "mom" was no longer number 1, but a means of transportation.
So at that, I came home and made my Horseradish Encrusted Salmon, cinnamon sweet potatos, and brussel sprouts, and enjoyed a nice healthy, welbalanced meal by my lonesome. I will say, I am a huge horseradish fan, and the salmon was awesome, and Im going to have to make it again, and soon b/c I want to put up a picture, and Ill have no problem eating that salmon again. yum! Here is the recipe, and hopefully it wont be too horseradishy for others, but I just love the strong horseradish taste.
