Simple Salmon on Toast

Salmon on Toast | Fork Knife Swoon

Happy Easter weekend, darlings! Do you have plans to celebrate the holiday? The Honey has a four-day weekend, but we’ve been so busy this month, I’m perfectly happy to play it low-key this year, hunkered down inside for a cozy weekend. It’ll be just the two of us celebrating tomorrow morning with a lazy Sunday brunch, and perhaps a jaunt with the pup in the afternoon between Spring rain showers. Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Happy Easter Weekend! (And a Simple Salmon on Toast)
