Yesterday morning I looked out the window to see some beautiful transport winds moving quickly across the sky. This first one looked like a man with a beard flying with his arms outstretched (the darker cloud in the center).
Can you see the man with the beard in the dark cloud. If not what do you see?
A few seconds later the clouds spread out looking like waves.
Then the clouds blended even more as they flew by.
Have you ever had salmon patties? My mom used to make them so I thought I'd give them a try. Sometimes they're called salmon cakes but I've always known them as patties. It takes about half an hour to prepare and serve these and they're really delicious. I always keep canned salmon in my pantry because I like to make a cold salmon salad in the summer; I'll add salmon patties to my wintertime meal list. The asparagus spears were canned I prefer fresh, then frozen, over canned.
Drain one can of salmon well and put in a medium sized mixing bowl. Next add one beaten egg and some bread crumbs, sprinkle in some cardamom and red pepper flakes. No need to add salt, canned salmon already has salt added. Mix well and form into patties.
Melt butter and add some olive oil to a frying pan on medium high heat. When butter and oil mixture is hot (I sprinkle a couple of small drops of water in the oil and when it pops I know the oil is hot), gently place the patties in the frying pan. Turn over when brown on one side and turn down the heat and cover and cook till brown on the other side and cooked through. Serve immediately. One can of salmon made four generous sized patties. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
