Well, I am really tired. This past week has been extra busy due to the salmon that needed to be canned, smoked and/or frozen in addition to all the stuff I usually do each week. Forty-two red salmon are a lot of fish to deal with in a short time. I canned 80 pints of salmon. I made three batches of smoked salmon and put ten vacuum-sealed, quart-sized, salmon-filled bags in the freezer after I had canned up 16 pints. Of course, there was a lot of snacking on the salmon before it got too far.
Also put away are 64 pints of fresh salmon which I canned. We had a couple meals of the fresh fish, too. Now, my husband will probably go fishing tomorrow! In a few weeks the silver salmon run begins. That’s the fish I like to tackle. Talk about a fight! They flip, jump, tailwalk, and run the line.
We continue to have lovely summer weather. Even with this afternoon’s downpour the temperature stayed warm. The area has been in deep need of a really good rain. If it rained that hard in the fire area, it should have really helped to slow it down.
I’ll bet this surprises you. I made a salmon and egg salad combo spread to put on crackers for snacks tonight. Actually, I had two jars not seal, so we need to use their contents within the next few days. I’ll probably make salmon casserole with the other jar.
Did you read that two studies showed that omega 3 fish oil was considerably better at controlling high cholesterol than the statins? There was an article in yesterday’s newspaper about it. I think we’ve enough salmon to keep our cholesterol just fine. When you combine all that salmon with the BTD how could anyone go wrong?
