When the Moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie : That's enough-e
Now we are One.....

No Serenity here....

The back of the Zhivago lacy edged cardigan is finished and I have started the left front. The kind lady at the Wool Shop has put another ball away for me as I expressed my worries about needing another ball. They have dyelot issues, apparently. I  am also onto the second ball of fuzzy wool for my ruglet. I need 6 more balls. That will make it measure 150 x 110 cm-ish. That is quite a handy size.

I inquired at the Cinema about “Serenity” and when it would be screened and the helpful girl looked up the schedule till October 20th and there is no sign of it. This is terrible news. I know there is a special screening in Hobart on the 29th, next Monday, but what about us?? It looks like DVD for me.

Tomorrow the Knitting Coven meets again, 1 pm at the Monkey Bar near City Park. I am hoping for a nice glass of wine again and a bit of a gander at everyone’s knitting.

The Labradors had an excellent walk today, though they have decided not to play with any of their toys today. They just want food. I gave them half an apple core each and some dried fruit.

Salmon and Potato Cakes

( I am making these for my tea)

  • 1 kg mashing potatoes : Desiree, Tasman, Pontiac

  • 800 g can Red Salmon, drained, deboned and deskinned if you want – I do!!!

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • juice of a lemon

  • finely grated rind of lemon

  • 60 ml mayonnaise

  • chopped parsley

  • breadcrumbs

Peel potatoes and place in a saucepan of COLD water and bring to the boil. Simmer till tender, drain and mash.  Add all the other ingredients except for the breadcrumbs. Season to taste and fold together gently. Use a ¼ cup measure to make evenly sized salmon cakes. Roll them in the breadcrumbs and then refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Shallow fry in vegetable oil till crispy and golden on the outside. You can also fry them with a minimum of oil and then bake them in the oven at 180 C for 15-20 minutes. Serve with mayonnaise and lemon wedges.
