TV Dinner

Tonight, my boyfriend is having dinner with some buddies on the hill and our roommate won't be home until later. So... it's cooking for one. I actually really love these nights because the possibilities for dinner are endless! I can have whatever looks good or sounds good - and all I have to worry about is pleasing myself :-)

I've had the last bit of my smoked salmon in the fridge for a while and it needed to get used up so here is what I came up with...

1 serving smoked salmon (whatever brand/flavor you like)
1/3 c shelled edamame
1/3 c corn (I'll admit I used the canned sweet corn but it still works!)
1 serving sweet potato fries (or whatever sweet potato or other potato you have...leftovers are easiest)
olive oil

Mix it all together, microwave until you've reached the temperature you like best.

I know it doesn't seem like anything special but when you have the place to yourself, a TV in front of you and a few hours until Jersey Shore premieres...(yes... I've gotten sucked in... ) it's easy to relax with this comforting yet extremely nutritious meal!
