blackened salmon

i made blackened salmon last night. i wasn’t originally planning on making blackened salmon, but i walked away from the stove for a little bit and when i came back i doused the salmon with some oil to salvage what seemed to be a disaster in the works.

the blackened salmon didn’t look very appetizing but it turned out to be quite tasty. i’ve been making many more dishes without recipes so i don’t know what exactly to call them. i’m going to call this dish my blackened cajun salmon meal. the next time i make it, i think i’ll call it my oops! i did it again salmon.

ladder 49

i just watched ladder 49 and it completely surprised me…in a bad way. this movie was not at all what i had expected it to be. instead of an action movie where we see firefighters, well, fight fires, it was a rather sobering and sad movie about the hazards of fire fighting. the families left behind, the dangers that are inherent in the job, and the ultimate loss of life for a character that the movie spent the whole time endearing us to is just too much for me.

i really disliked this movie. i really need to start watching some good movies, i’ve watched a few bad ones lately…
