The lime green room now has furniture again and new bedding. Next up: curtains and pictures. Peace! And now this very tired triathlon mama is ready for a big bowl of ice cream!

And some more fun recipes too. Tonight's dinner was salmon cakes, spaghetti squash and cooked cabbage--the cabbage and squash both from the the CSA.
I got really frustrated when I first started making salmon cakes because the recipes were so complicated and time consuming. Then, my friend Mary introduced me to this quick & easy recipe and it's been a staple in our house ever since. Thanks, Mary!
3 cans boneless, skinless salmon; drained
3/4 c. crushed saltines (or cracker of your choice; about 10 crackers)
1 T. lemon juice
3 T. milk
pepper to taste (this Maryland girl also adds Old Bay, of course)
Mix salmon with saltines, egg, lemon & milk. Add pepper & Old Bay.
Shape into patties. (Makes about 6 medium patties)
Saute with olive oil or broil until brown (about 5 mins per side)
I love being a member of the CSA because I get to try so many new veggies. This is the first time I've ever made spaghetti squash or cabbage. The spaghetti squash was really good and so easy--and so cool in that it really does look like 'sketti! I found these two simple recipes for squash and cabbage online. I seasoned both with pepper, sea salt and olive oil. Enjoy!
1/2 head of cabbage (chopped)
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. water
Salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter in a large skillet add chopped cabbage and toss until cabbage is coated. Add salt and pepper, and water, cover. Cook until cabbage is done about 15 minutes.
