Shopping Around the World In November

cute-kitten-sitting-shopping-cartThanks to Piglove and Fozziemum for providing us a forum to tell everybody our recipes.  Go Bacon!

We are supposed to be cooking up a Thanksgiving side dish but our Thanksgiving was last month, in October.  Mom and dad won’t appreciate anything to do with a turkey so close to Christmas.  The peeps in the States can hack it.  Well, we’re a little different.

So what are we cooking then Shoko?  Mom says she’s making up fish cakes.  How un-Thanksgiving like.  Well, this dish is for a break after all that  turkey.  Most of her ingredients are from the vegetable garden….but not the salmon Shoko.  Too bad, we could be rich if mom could grow fish out in the garden.

What’s that Elfin John doing?  You want to help us?  We don’t need your help, thank you.  I think we should let him help, Shoko.  He may be turning over a new leaf and who are we to stop his progress.  I don’t believe it Kali and now I feel guilty.  Oh, alright,,,,he can help us.

Here is a picture of the ingredients.


Here is a picture of the ingredients mom forgot to show in the first photo.

Now that you’re confused we’ll tell you the ingredients:

1 onion, diced…$.030
1/4 cup shredded carrot……optional
4 average old potatoes…
1/4 cup green pepper…$0.25
1/4 cup red pepper……$0.25
4 drops Worcester sauce…optional…cupboard
celery leaves….2 tbsps..optional
1/2 cup frozen peas
Sockeye salmon…..150 grams (5.3 ounces)… $5.25

Mom sends to St, Jean’s Cannery for her salmon.  Wonderful tasting salmon.  St. Jean’s Cannery is in the city of Nanaimo where Nanaimo Bars were invented.

We are all ready to get underway.                                                             aashokochef

Fry the peppers, onion,potatoes, dill, fall, nip, Kali, electric, cakes and shredded carrot, until they are just soft. Throw them into the mashed potatoes with Worcester sauce.  Add the dill and all other ingredients.  Your mixture is set to be fried.                                                             aaelfinbowlHey you…Elfin!!!  Get away before you fall in.

Good grief, I need a nip smoothie.  This little guy is getting to me.

aanipdrink2Thank you Kali.

Now, lets get out the electric fry pan.  Turn the temperature to high and spray a bit of oil in the bottom of the pan, about a tbsp.  Shape the cakes into round shapes about the size of a hamburger patty. When these rounds are in the frying pan press them flatter with a spatula. Our fry pan  holds 7 medium fish cakes.                                                                 aafishcakes1

These are the cooking fish cakes.  Mom is not great at flipping them over but she’s the boss.                                                                   aacookfc2There you have it friends.  Now for a sip of my nip smoothie.

What are you doing in my smoothie, you oddball!

aaelfindrinkYuck…I don’t want an elfin smoothie!!

May the food I burn, light your path.


KALI…..ORANGE                                                                            sistersinarmsfall

    The fishcakes look very…interesting although I’d maybe leave out some of the ingredients, like Kali and catnip…that elf! What WAS he doing..?:) xx

      You know the fish cakes taste even better without these odd ingredients. Mom doesn’t care for nip and certainly not a mouthful of Elfin. He just hung out with us and offered suggestions. We ignored him so he jumped into my smoothie.

    Oh my! Now this is something I can sink my teeth into – and maybe the fish cakes too – snorts with piggy laughter. Your little Elfin John might be turning to the good side – at least I hope so. Off to print this recipe now for mom – thanks for sharing! XOXO – Bacon

    Those sound sorta like salmon patties. But with a lot more stuffs in ’em. Course none of us are fish eaters, so what would we know. MOL We think we got a bit confused there, are you fryin’ up Kali? We don’t think dat would be very nice. Big hugs fur all.l

    Luv ya’

      I guess they could be called salmon patties. We usually use whatever is in the fridge to fill out the ingredients except for the potatoes. One time we had leftover haddock so we used that. It was very good.

      We decided not to throw Kali into the fry pan and fry her up. She’d probably too tough for us. MOL
