First off: for those of you who have asked about our adorable grandson Matthew, I thank you so much for thinking of him!
Matthew is 4 weeks old now, weighing in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces and is a sweet delight. That’s Daddy holding him in the picture and his babysitter Coco supervising.
Kathy brought 2 adorable Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers along with her when she married our son Matt. Coco, the younger one, is amazing with the baby! She leaves Matthew’s side only for the essentials and tries her best to get her licks in every chance she gets. When we hold Matthew, the look on her face begs us, “Please let me have him ~ I know I could do better!” I know Matthew and Coco will be best friends as Matthew grows up, and Bella also, who leaves the babysitting to Coco most of the time.
Now for a great dish I hope you all will enjoy:
I guarantee you’ll like these salmon patties if you adore salmon the way I do!
This recipe is from an old friend and it is chocked full of flavorful ingredients to go with the canned salmon ~ corn kernels, Dijon mustard and paprika, for starters. Mom used to make them but just added eggs, cracker crumbs and onion. This is not my mom’s salmon patties!
The corn adds a crispy sweetness with the Dijon mustard and lemon juice adding zesty flavors. I used “pink” salmon. Refrigerating the patties for an hour ensures that they will not crumble when fried. These are simple and easy to make for fast dinner. Just flip them carefully when frying!
I really like salmon straight out of the can! Do you?

They’re tasty ~ scrumptiously good!!!
