A happy accident for grilled salmon...

So...guess who was up all night with a sick baby? Yup, that was me. I'm not going to complain though. My little r is an amazing sleeper. She started sleeping through the night at 8 weeks, and now at almost 2 years I can count on one hand the number of times she's woken up during the night. She sleeps a solid 12 hours every night and takes long naps. Don't worry, I do realize that lightning rarely strikes the same place twice, so I'm mentally gearing up for baby #2's sleep habits not going as smoothly.

That being said...good sleeper or not, when mommy doesn't get any sleep at night, for what ever reason, the next day never goes well. Add to that, daddy's out of town on business so mommy's on 24/7 duty, and it equals one dead beat mommy, counting the hours until bed time.

Now that you know why my post is so late today, lets talk about this recipe. I came up with this to go on grilled salmon. I used to have a recipe for a cucumber sauce, but for the life of me can't find it. So I decided to just come up with a new one. To be honest, I like this one better than the one I had. A little happy accident I guess.

½ C. sour cream
