Fancy Schmancy

Hello again, blogging world!  What a busy week...  Things are winding down at least for now, so I'm extremely happy that tomorrow is Friday.  I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off between a billion things to do at work and school.  Anybody know what that's like?


Anyway, I made a fancy schmancy dinner tonight.  At least it seems pretty fancy schmancy because I can't even really pronounce it.  Isn't that what makes dinners fancy?  These pictures are kind of fail, but my camera was being particularly difficult this evening.  Sorry!

Dilled Salmon Cakes with Tzatziki Sauce

Cucumber and Cherry Tomato Salad
with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Okay, so I can pronounce everything except for "tzatziki"... and I might have that down.  I'll never really know until I meet someone who actually knows how to say that.  ;-)  Or I look it up.  Eh.  I'm feeling kinda lazy.  I should also tell you that the above link for the salmon cakes is NOT the recipe that I used.  Mine were both out of that darn WW magazine that doesn't have anything online.  The salmon cake recipe is very similar though... just use one less egg OR keep the extra egg and maybe yours won't fall apart like this:

Still pretty tasty.  :-)  I might actually add that extra egg next time and see what happens. 

The salad, however... I do not recommend unless you love onions.  I do love tomatoes.

...but not onions.  It's basically a salad made up of tomatoes, cucumber, and onions with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette on top.  Here's Jimmy eating a forkful of onions (cause he'll do stuff like that):

What a good guy.  He even posed for me!  Hopefully the onions didn't burn away his tastebuds!  :-) 


  1. I LOVE Tzatziki sauce. Love love love. its so good on gyros and chicken souvlaki i don't know how to teach you to pronounce this it kinda like tat-zee-kee. Sometimes i use it as salad dressing when i make a ton of it. Enjoy

  2. :-) Think I got it! I've never really had a gyro or chicken souvlaki... I guess I should!


Leave me some love! :-)
