Dinner Fails

Dinner was a disaster tonight. I had bought canned salmon. I thought I was buying flaked salmon, like tuna. No. It was skin-on, bone-in, stinky-sitting-in-my-fish-juices salmon. My plans to create salmon cakes, quickly fleeted into the compost. When I look at something I am about to eat and think, "EW!" I don't even bother. My next thought was to make roast beef sandwiches. Wrong again. The sandwich meat I had purchased had a small hole in the air tight packaging and the meat was dehydrated. Into the compost too. I ended up making butter dill sole with some leftover grains from the night before.

I also tripped on a toy and banished them all from the kitchen.

"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink...." -Matthew 6:25a

I find it interesting that Jesus says do not worry. Not try not to worry. Do not worry. I find the best way to tackle my problem is with an action that replaces worry. Prayer. In the example above, cooking something else to eat.

It was my hope to post a new gluten-free recipe for salmon cakes tonight, perhaps another. I hope to post some of our gluten-free experiments and finds this summer as we journey through July and August. Happy Summer.
