I wasn't even sure I'd have time to cook anything, but I discovered a little pesto in the freezer and decided to make one of our favorite standbys, Pesto Salmon. I served it with a box of Near East Wild Mushroom and Herb Couscous and a spinach salad.

We served a new wine with dinner. It was an impulse buy at World Market, a place full of impulse buys. This month they were featuring Timbuktu Big Block Red for about $10. Apparently it is produced only for World Market. While I liked the wine very much, it did not pair well with the pesto salmon - too much interference - a lighter wine would have been better. The wine is flavorful and fruity, but a bit on the dry side.
