Art about Cash

what can I say? I love him so much I must make art about him
and here is Teal being a MERMAID in San Diego. Cash says " why didn't I get to go?" Sorry Cash, Southwest doesn't fly massive dogs for free.

Salmon Burgers!

Sounds strange, I know, but tastes great.

A pound or so of Salmon will do (fresh not canned)
One Egg
Chile powder (optional)
crushed garlic
Salt and pepper

Grind up your salmon in a food processor or just finely, finely chop it. Pop it into a bowl with the egg and spices and mix it all up ( I prefer to do this part with my hands ;) )
Heat up some olive oil in a pan and plop down a couple patties (make these however big or however small you please, just keep in mind that the smaller ones will cook much much faster.)
Lower your heat to medium while your make your "cheese sauce"

Cheese Sauce:
Equal parts cream cheese and Ricotta cheese
Lemon juice
chopped green onions or scallions

Stir it up, flip your patties, and pop some cheese on top. add a bit of water to your pan and cover it to create some steam to melt that cheese all up over your patty.

Cut up some red onion and avocado for toppings and smother some mustard on that bread/bun.

Cash says: "Hey and don't forget to give your pan scrapings to your pretty pooch!"
Simone says: "Gimme some of that CHEESE SAUCE"

An Ode to the Mother

Love you momma

What to do? What to do?

What do you do when your rats push their bedding into their food? Do you ask them politely to not do that? Do you scold them? Do you feed them better food?

Oh rats, how you keep me confused. But nevertheless delighted.

mmm Turkey Burger

If you aren't that into beef and not too stoked on veggi-burgers, here's your burger!

Ground turkey
One Egg
Garlic (mooshed)
Red Onion
Cilantro (optional)
Bell Pepper
Salt and peppa

Green chile and cheese are always a great topping... but whatever floats your boat.

Chop your onion and your bell pepper (and cilantro) and throw them in a bowl with the ground turkey and smooshed garlic. Break one egg into it and add about a tablespoon of oil. Mix it all up (I prefer to use my hands) and add your salt, pepper, and cumin to taste.

Drop some oil and butter in your pan and set to high. drop in some good sized patties and take the heat down to med-high. Have your sliced cheese at the ready. Flip the patties when they start to turn white around the sides. Add the cheese and put a lid over your burgers, and the steam should melt it and make your turkey patties exquisitely delicious.

Toast up some bread and add your preffered condiments.

Simone Approves!
