Salmon Croquettes or Patties



These little patties are very flavorful and healthy.   Two of these patties contain more calcium than a glass of milk.  Great served with wild and brown rice and steamed vegetables. 


Salmon Croquettes or Patties

2 cans (14 1/2 oz) Pink Salmon, drained and flaked
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups of bread crumbs
1/2 cup of green onions or purple onions, chopped
1/2 cup of chopped celery
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 tablespoons butter
 lemon wedges or parsley for garnish, optional

In a large bowl combine salmon, eggs, 1 cup of the bread crumbs, onions, celery, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Form into 8 patties and evenly coat with the 1/4 cup of bread crumbs.  In a large skillet over medium high heat cook 4 of the patties in 2 tablespoons butter for 8-10 minutes turning once until golden brown.  Repeat with the other four patties and butter.  Garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.

Church Babies made from Hankerchiefs


I remember these adorable Church babies when I was a little girl.  They were made from handkerchiefs and were designed to help sweet little girls everywhere stay a little quieter in Church.  And if one was dropped, it never made a noise.  

I am making them for my granddaughters for Easter and decided it would be a good time to share the easy tutorial.

Supplies Needed

1-16 inch square, men's white handkerchief
1 yard of frilly white lace trim
2 yards of 1/4 inch ribbon in your choice of colors (I used baby blue)
Embroidery thread for eyes, mouth, nose and design
(I used black, red, pink, baby blue,green and yellow)
cotton stuffing or batting for head





Start by folding the handkerchief in half.   From the seam edge, measure 1 inch down the fold and fold to that point and pin.  










Tack at the very end with white thread. 







Open the hanky up and turn it over.  See the little loop for the neck ribbon. 
This will be the top (head) of the baby. 







Now at the bottom (which will be her skirt) draw a little design or you can hot iron a transfer on it.  Even the child's name would be cute.  I drew three little daisy like flowers.






A simple little embroidery pattern done!  








Pin your lace on the bottom edge of the hanky (skirt) and sew it together.






Cut a 20 inch piece of the ribbon and thread it through the little loop you made at the top of the hankie




Grab a fistful (thats how I measure;) of cotton stuffing or batting. 







Place the cotton inside the hankie just below the ribbon. Gather the hankie around the cotton and tie with the ribbon to make the head. 






Cut a 4 inch strip of lace and pin it to the top of the baby's head for a bonnet look. Sew or tac it to her head.






Draw a sweet little face on your baby and don't forget to put a couple of dimples.






  



Embroidery her little face and use regular white thread to make an indentation for her dimples.










Tie the corners of the hankie into knots to make her hands





Cut two pieces of ribbons, 9 inches each.  Tie each one on each side of the bottom to make her sweet little feet. 






Also she needs is to be loved by a sweet little girl!
