If I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a cake...



It's almost 1 pm and I am still in my jammies. hey, gimme a break, I rarely get the chance to relax so I decided today was a relax day...at least for 30 more minutes. I wanted to try something different the other day so I took my crabcake recipe and substituted tuna canned in olive oil for the crabmeat. It was actually really good. Wife wanted to have "tuna melt burgers" (her idea that I was supposed to figure out how to make) so this is what I came up with. I just combined them with bread crumbs, onion, red pepper, jalps, s &p,and an egg. I then shallow fried them in olive oil and melted jack cheese on them in the broiler (on a butter bun from the bakery). Pretty tasty. I think a mini version would make a great snack for a cocktail party. The soup is a veggie soup with beans made for wife's sister. her and her squeeze were passing through and we made this for a speedy veg-tastic dinner. The salad was lunch yesterday that we had before mom and dad dish left. I used a brown sugar rub on the chicken and combined it with greens and sunflower shoots from shadowbrook farms. Also had made some croutons from the seeded pain de campagne that we started making at the bakery. Pick some up, sesame and flax seeds toasted to nirvana creating a crunchy, nutty crust on an intensely flavorful country bread...yes please!
Also, went to the market for the first time this year. I hadn't been in 2 years, It's getting huge! I couldn't believe the number of new booths that were there. If you live lincoln, you have to go check it out. I am thinking about making another trip next week since my lettuce has finally quit (time to plant again!)
