    Oh yeah, my best friend in Korea is leaving tomorrow morning. Tonight was her going away, so we opened the second bottle I bought on my birthday. This is your MDA drunk warning!

    Budget paleo: not crab cakes

    IMG_2219.jpg

    I just used this recipe here but with canned wild salmon instead of pricey crab. I was bloody lovely. When making it, I though 0_0 a whole teaspoon of lemon peel?? But trust me (and Mark or whoever actually made the recipe); it's correct. Luckily, every time I buy a lemon, I freeze the zest if I'm not immediately using it. Budget rule number 36, never waste anything.

    Now, the important stuff. Can you taste/feel the bones and skin? No, and yes? The first time I felt bone, I thought it was just crispy edges. So yes, but not really.

    It was really good though.

    My mom used to make a canned salmon casserole as a quick dinner when I was a kid (this was before the days of fast food when dinosaurs roamed the Earth...) My brother and I would fight over who got to eat the crunchy bones. That's the best part!

    Canned salmon is its own thing imo, I sometimes eat it by preference over fresh, knowing that the bones are doing me good as rich in calcium. I find the skin a bit too slimey and 'icky' and pick that off. Kudos on the recipe hack!

    My dad made tuna casserole at least every other week (Kraft dinner + tuna). It wasn't bad actually, but not my favorite. Too bad the bones probably would never fly nowadays! I thought they were actually kinda tasty toasted. The skin I have to mash in so I don't notice it, though I enjoy it on fresh salmon.

    I wish I could get on board with salmon skin, that goes in the bin too; my cat won't touch it either unfortunately. I know it must have great nutrition. I love childhood food reminisces - just looked up kraft dinner My father made steak pies from scratch but didnt really get involved in family meals beyond that, except, he loved carving chicken I think (dead carcass + knifework = man's work )

    Lol man's work. I'm not sure where exactly Kraft dinner sits on the Traditional Midwest Meal plate. It's more of a northern thing, but it definitely made appearances. Perhaps Mandatory Spoonable Starch? Potatoes and noodles were both fairly common.

    Wow sudden craving for pasta marinara.

    Real potatoes? We had this bizarre dried processed potato mash, advertised by space dwelling robots in an iconic TV advert. I seem to remember eating it dry, crunchy, salty like popcorn from the packet. I'm getting carried away, maybe should start a food's nostalgia thread somewhere lol.

    Yes to the marinara, bet you can whip up a lovely sauce

    Had a medical for me apprenticeship when I was 16, company Doc put his hand on me chest went breathe in, breathe out, told me I was alive and that was it more or less, found out later he used to spend as much time as he could in the local working mens club, getting bladdered....

    Indeed, it seemed to fill father with such pleasure and pride, that's more than OK by me.
