So, originally I planned to post a recipe for home laundry soap. My friend Mindy came over and FORCED ME to confront my procrastination on learning how to make my own.
I just love Mindy. She's one of those friends that says, "You know you want to. You know you do. Here, let me prove it to you." And she's always right! Next, I have to start watching Dr. Who. She tells me it's amazing and since she's always right, I know it will be!
Anyway, she came over to my house one day with all the ingredients to make laundry soap. I'd kept meaning to.... but had somehow never found the time or remembered to buy the ingredients. But I sure remembered it whenever we ran out of regular laundry soap and had to run to the store.
But after I was done writing up this blog post, I found the tag "laundry soap" in the labels and realized that Jan had already covered this! (Whooops! Last minutes change of plans. Enter salmon patties.)
I'll leave a few pictures here so you can see what a great friend Mindy is (no, she's mine, you can't steal her away) and then we'll move on to salmon patties. I'm not looking in the tags to see if those have already been done because it's all I have right now! Ha! I shall proceed in willful ignorance.Another shot of the goods, which I think is very close to Jan's recipe.
Now, it's Lent so I was making a meatless meal tonight. We don;t eat that much meat, usually. We're more pie and ice cream people. (I'm just kidding. Please don't call CPS.)
So, this recipe is probably pretty standard for salmon patties but instead of cracker crumbs, I added flavored croutons. A friend of mine said she always made them that way and once I tried it, I liked it better!
1 can of salmon (or fresh salmon, which I had, so I used that)
1/3 cup minced onion
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning or other Cajun seasoning (or, seasoned salt, which I used this time because one of my kids asked for "plain" salmon patties)
1 TBS fresh parsley
1/4 tsp fresh lemon juice (my friend uses zest but I never have)
1 cup of crushed crackers (about 20) or a cup of crushed croutons
3 TBS of water or chicken broth
Wishing you a prayerful Lenten season, everyone!
