Peaceful home

The temperature dropped today as forecast and if you happened to be up early enough you'd have seen frost on the ground. I saw the frost after it had started to thaw leaving behind glittering jewel drops. While the day was cold it was still nice enough. 
For supper tonight we are having Salmon Rissoles...the recipe is below.


Pink or red salmon drained and flaked
4 green onions chopped
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 egg
Flour for rolling
Vegetable oil


Cook potatoes in saucepan until tender. Drain. Mash with butter until smooth and season to taste.

Add breadcrumbs, salmon, green onions, lemon zest and juice, and egg. Mix well. Allow to cool slightly. Shape into patties. Roll in flour shaking off excess.

Heat oil in frying pan on high. Cook patties in 2 batches for 5-6 minutes, turning once, until golden and heated through. Drain on paper towel.

We served up supper with steamed beans and this variation of a Cauliflower Bake, it's the same method but we added broccoli in it as well as the cauliflower. This is a very frugal old fashioned dinner and goes down well with hot custard and sweet pie after.

I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.


  1. I love salmon rissoles - they taste so creamy. I must try the cauli/brocc bake, I had never though of that. Thank you for the suggestions.

  2. That has cured my dilemma for tea tonight - I was feeling like something different....this is it. Oh - the little handwritten card for cold-cream looks tantilizing too.....
