For the first time this year, we broke 80 in Boston. Ahhhh, it felt fabulous. And it called for celebration with a refreshment.
I enjoyed my first summer beer of the season while making Kath’s Maryland Salmon Cakes. I like salmon in general, but the canned stuff does make me a bit nervous. I was glad that I was on high alert when opening the can because I swear there was an entire vertebrate in there – not thin bones but big knobs that looked like joint pieces. Luckily it was easy to pick them out, but it sure seemed dangerous to me!
I subbed full fat greek yogurt for the mayo because we don’t really keep mayo in the house. I also made Kath’s aioli with greek yogurt, hot sauce, mustard, and Old Bay and it was the perfect accompaniment.
These were awesome!!! I was pretty surprised that they weren’t very fishy and even Matt (who does not like salmon) liked them.
It was nice to make something new, as I feel like I’ve been eating a lot of the same lately. I also realized I haven’t tried any new beers recently:( It seems like I was drinking way more beer in the winter when it was too cold to do anything else. I also think there’s a lot more variety in the fall/winter seasonals because summer beers are supposed to be lighter, which often means fewer ingredients. I’m headed out of town yet again this weekend, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll get to visit the unique brewery at my destination…
Are you guys traveling for memorial day?
Oh, and happy birthday to my friend Sara today and to my friend Corbin tomorrow!!!!
