Such a good kitchen day!

I've had such fun in my kitchen today I just had to share. Looking for new ways to serve salmon (hey - it's heart healthy you know!) I decided to make some fresh salmon burgers, seasoned with cumin and shallots. I topped them with a bit of caper and parsley aioli and served on grilled french bread. To go with it I made a wilted spinach salad with a citrus honey dressing and a spicy mango chutney - Oh my gosh, I was so happy with the way it came out!



While at the farmer's market today I found these beautiful pickles - nice and small and just perfect for canning. A bit of dill and garlic and some salt water brine...
and viola, tomorrow we will have half sour pickles! My daughter's out of town for the weekend so this will be a nice surprise for her when she gets home tomorrow evening as these are one of her favorite things! I'm anticipating that they'll be gone by Monday morning, LOL!


Anyways, kitchen's closed for the evening and I'm off to the craft room with Murphy at my side to create! Have a great Sunday everyone!
