It's another week of August here, but I can see the finish line! Fall is my FAVORITE season, and I'm always happy to see summer GO. I know, that sounds strange to many people in other parts of the country or world, but here in the US Southeast, it's too hot for this girl! I look forward to crisp, clear fall days and enjoying being outside again! And because we have looooong summers and short fall and spring seasons, I consider fall to begin on Sept. 1. I don't care what the calendar says!
This week, we are continuing to work on cleaning out our deep-freeze so that it can be defrosted. It's easiest to defrost when we can simply empty, unplug and drag it out the back door of the basement into the sun. It can then defrost and drain, and I can clean it without making a mess in the house. But it is currently FULL of food and we need to eat that first, so here's the plan! Italics indicate a new recipe we haven't tried.
Tuesday: Sauteed Salmon with Lemon Butter OR Salmon with Peas in Butter Broth, Onion Roasted Potatoes (I'll either use salmon filets we have frozen, or if the second recipe, some frozen cooked salmon I had been saving to make salmon patties)
