Almond Blossom Fairy and Weekly Menu Link
Thanks for stopping by! I'm back to tidying up my stamp room and trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Last night's effort was suffered in polite silence by my crew. I found a recipe on line for salmon casserole with canned salmon, peas, peppers and eggs, sort of a crustless quiche idea. This recipe was ideal because I had all the ingredients on hand and the exact amount of preparation time before dinner. With this auspicious start, I knew that I had used up all my luck before dinner even started. It was ok, they ate it (heavily bribed with the other half of their piece of cheese toast), remarking only that it was a dinner that didn't require chewing, only squishing through their teeth. I don't have an exact quote as the daughter in question's memory is failing now that this is Going On The Blog. Tonight I have less in the pantry than yesterday, and even less inspiration. Maybe we will have Pancake Day early! Speaking of dinner, I did find a great website that does menu planning. It's free, it includes recipes and it's nutritious, and the whole works. It's put on by the government of Ontario and I would highly recommend it. Had I been out shopping today, I would have the ingredients for numerous tasty meals. Here's the link: Eat Right Ontario. It's a bit wordy with a lot of links to get to a 40 page download (did I mention this was a government site? she said snidely), but it's top quality, full of great resources, and worth it in the end (did I mention I am a public servant? she said smugly).
Thanks again for stopping by!
