I had every intention of a blog update over the weekend but we got just a bit busy. Well here it is Tuesday and I am just getting to this. Not a whole lot to share except a quick alternative to the way you might cook your salmon patties or crab cakes, a little something we did over the weekend, and some recently finished crochet projects.
So first, the cooking tip. Do you like salmon patties or crab cakes? I love them!! No one else in the house eats them but every so often I will make up a batch of salmon patties to have as a snack. When my mother taught me how to make them, she showed me frying as the cooking method. I don't do much frying, mainly because I hate cleaning up after frying...LOL!! Here's an alternative...baking! I just mix up my ingredients like I normally would. I scoop out portions and put them in my muffin tin and broil for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes I take them out and flip them over in the cups then broil for another 5 minutes. It's so simple, it's healthier, and is way easier to clean up.
As for our weekend, I have mentioned before that my husband does a type of racing called drifting. Well last May the engine blew up in the car so it has been down all of this time. Well I am happy to say that he has gotten the racecar running again and was able to get back on the track this past weekend. I know he's extremely happy and I am happy for him since I love drifting, too. Here he is doing what he loves.
Here are some pictures of my 8-year-old son and my 7-month-old this weekend. As you can see, the baby is sporting another hat made by mommy and it's quite appropriate for the upcoming holiday this weekend.
As far as my crochet projects, I finished these hats for a customer. I never thought the "boob" beanies would be SO popular, but I have about 6 of them I am going to be working on this week.
Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by!
