Fettucini with winter king, cocktail shrimp, mushrooms, and spring vegetables

The title says it all.
John's still away, there is the bit of left over winter king salmon.
Arrange the spring flowers. I think it is time to get the hummingbird feeders out. Poor little buggers are going to be cold, tired, and hungry.

Toss a butter lettuce salad with olive oil and red wine vinegar, add some slivers of carrots and a fan of avocado. Make a nice fruit salad with a mango that looks like someone took a machete to lingering in the frig, some kiwi, an orange, and a banana.

Pour some Villa Maria Unoaked Chardonnay.
Put the fettucini on.
Slice some crimini mushrooms, what turned out to be baby leeks, garlic, and sauté them in a bit of butter and olive oil. Added the salmon, toss in last night's steamed broccoli, and a dollop of the wine. Then a nice big dollop of heavy cream. Allow it to reduce a bit, and add the (drained) noodles.
Light the candles, and enjoy a late supper.
Decide to have a bath with Kniepp Valerian and Hops in hopes of sleeping soundly through the night, to be awakened at 2 am by cat barf. Some people are able to get back to sleep after that. I've heard.
