a foodie evening

it was just a regular wednesday night, but jamey and i chose to make it special by having a "foodie" evening. we set out just to make dinner, and to use some of the things we already had that were ready to go bad, and ended up with a feast that inspired hours-long food comas. jamey makes this amazing maple glazed salmon with chili powder, and that was what we built our meal around. if he's feeling adventurous, he makes a baguette-with-goat-cheese-and-mixed-greens salad to go with it, and since he had mixed greens that were going to waste in the fridge he decided to make it. i had red potatoes from the farmer's market that needed to be made, and a desire to use my rosemary plant before the season is over, so there was our side dish. at the grocery store, i also intended to find some sort of dessert to contribute to the meal, and ended up making devil's food cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and blue crystal sprinkles. at that point, it was official: we were going to spend way too long in my hot kitchen, make lots of dirty dishes, and eat the most awesome meal of the summer. and that's exactly what happened, as the pictures prove!
