Baked Salmon with Basil & Lemon Potato Salad

Okay, this is going to be fast and easy – just like riding the Waltzers – so there won’t be the usual level of banter (I’m sure my brother will be delighted). I’m tired, and there’s every possibility that I’ll fall asleep shortly after writing this — so let’s be brief, my fine, citrus-seeking friends….

Cheese & Spinach Roulade

Okay, kids.
