Firefighter Cookies

Today was our yearly open house for the Fire Department. I don't do nearly as much as I use to since taking care of the glambabies during the week. I decided to make something the kiddos could help with , and at least make it a fun experience. They always love cutting cookies out and eating frosting, so cut outs it was....
Why being the fire chiefs wife, do I not own at least a fire truck cookie cutter, I will never know. I have hundreds of cutters, and not one fire department related...ughhh...well I did what I could with a a western hat and boot...then I cut the reindeer's antlers off, and it became a dog....lol.
Yikes... we made over a hundred cookies total !

Low Carb Salmon Patties


You’ll love the taste of these salmon cakes because it takes a different approach at making salmon taste even better. If you love salmon but have grown tired of the same old presentation, give these salmon cakes a try and you’ll find that they’re easy to make and even easier to eat!
I get this bread at Walmart, and it is a life saver! You can use any flavor you like. The white bread has 35 calories and 6 net carbs per slice, wheat has 35 calories and 5 net carbs per slice and are fantastic tasting.  No High Fructose Corn Syrup. I practically skipped out of the store the first time I found this!

When shopping, be certain to check the sell-by date so that you know you are getting the freshest bread possible. Store bread in a room temperature setting, away from heat sources like microwave ovens and stoves.Just be warned this is not a gluten-free product and you’ll likely have to play around with your insulin dosing based on how you respond to high-fiber counts if you are diabetic.











VIDEO HERE....
  1. 1 Can Salmon
  2. 1/2 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning
  3. Diced green pepper to taste
  4. Diced onion to taste
  5. 1 tsp. Dill
  6. 4 T. Mayo
  7. 1/2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
  8. 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  9. 1 Egg
  10. Dash smoke flavor or 1 tsp. Bacon Grease
  11. 1/2 Cup low carb bread crumbs
  12. Rip 3 slices of Healthy Life bread into small pieces, and toast lightly in oven to get as much moisture out as possible. Then crumble before adding to salmon mixture.
  13. I used fresh cooked salmon for these, but almost always I use canned salmon, your choice...
  14. Open salmon and drain thoroughly. Place drained salmon in mixing bowl and flake evenly with a fork.
  15. Add onion, bread crumbs, green pepper, Old Bay, dill, mayonnaise,Worcestershire, Dijon mustard, smoke flavor/bacon grease and egg. Stir until well blended.
  16. Shape the mixture into patties about the size of an average burger or less.
  17. Cook in oil {I use 2 T. Olive oil, and 2 T.Butter} in skillet over medium heat until browned on each side. Turn only once while frying, or they may fall apart.
  18. Note: The mayonnaise helps the patties hold their shape, adds flavor, and keeps them from being too dry.
  19. Sauce....Mix 5 T.Mayo, and 2 T. ketchup and a dash of mustard....Delish!!
