Friends, Snowdrops and Fish Cakes

11 Feb

1   We went to friends for coffee this morning – what a treat! I am itching now to get back to our lives as they were not only pre-op but pre-pain!

2   Afterwards we went to the garden centre to get some Snowdrops ‘in the green’ which is the best time to plant them. We have 50 extra now that the lovely Mr S will plant tomorrow.

3    Beautifully simple supper of Salmon Fishcakes made with salmon leftovers from the other night and mashed potatoes, also leftovers. I recently discovered Panko breadcrumbs which I had thought to be a bit of an expensive con but they really create a lovely crispy crust! I served them with Braised Baby Gem Lettuce, Petit Pois and Shallotts and some delicious Chilli Jam made by good friends.

    I too like Panko bread crumbs, we use them on many things we bread. For us we enjoy Tuna Patties or I should say crispy Tuna Patties, never thought to make them with left over mashed potatoes, sounds good.

    Leftovers are the best part of the next meal. I am sure you didn’t have any leftovers of the leftovers. 🙂
