Salmon Croquettes and Martini Caper

Recipes in this Post Salmon Croquettes Martini Caper Every once in a while, I make too many mashed potatoes.  Yes, it’s true, even Spane and I cannot eat as many as I made the other night with liver and onions!  A long time ago, I discovered that salmon croquettes were particularly good using a left over baked potato as binder.  I had left over mashed, why not I thought? These turned out so good I didn’t even have chance to take pictures!  Amber and I munched on them while we sat and talked over a Caper Martini.

Grapefruit Tiger Martinis

Yesterday, was girls night out.  My friend was coming to visit me and I wanted to make something special for us.  I had seen something on the Internet about the great fruit cocktail made with vodka and black pepper.  I posted to Facebook that I had gin and that I would post back once I had made my cocktail.

Here’s my recipe for Grapefruit Tiger Martini. Ingredients   1 cup gin Half gallon of pink grapefruit juice 1 tablespoon tiger sauce 4 grapefruit sections Freshly grated tri-color pepper Ice Club soda Directions In a … Continue reading

When I had Spane on November 21, 2003, I started thinking about what his First Holy Communion was going to be like. When he was Baptized at Holy Family Catholic Community Church on May 17, 2007, I started counting down the days. There were 1460 days, or 3 years, 11 months, 29 days until his First Holy Communion. In case you wondered, yes, I am counting down the days until his Confirmation, which should be about 2192 days, about 6 years from now.
