Just that Kind of Day


April Rain Song

by Langston Hughes

Let the rain kiss you.

Let the rain beat upon your head

with silver liquid drops.

Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

The rain makes still pools

on the sidewalk.

The rain makes running pools

in the gutter.

The rain plays a little sleep-song

on our roof at night.

And I love the rain.

Cook's notes: It was just that kind of day that makes you want to hunker inside far away from the drizzling cold outside. A festive meal can definitely brighten the day. This salmon dish is super easy and flavorful chockfull of heart-healthy protein, vitamin A and omega-3 fatty acids!
The recipe was adapted from a copycat Ruby Tuesday restaurant recipe. The salmon was served over rice with steamed broccoli.
