We were driving home from our new homesite when we noticed how bad he looked. He started having a shallow cough every few seconds. It only lasted for about a minute but that was one LONG minute. I was so scared that his tongue was swelling and he was having trouble breathing. I was plotting the driving route to the nearest hospital but then he stopped coughing and was all smiles. His face cleared up by the next morning. I guess we'll keep him away from walnuts until we figure out if they caused this terrible reaction.
Speaking of the house... we're slowly moving along. We decided on a house and had two appointments to choose all of our options. They were about to send off for the permits to start building when we freaked out and changed our minds to a totally different house. Now we have to start all over again. Hopefully they'll break ground in 3-4 weeks. We've had 5 showings on our existing house. We're getting some pretty good feedback but no offers yet. I consider it a good thing since we won't be able to move into our new house until March(ish).
Tristan had an unofficial visit with a college this week. I can't believe she's already thinking about colleges! This is such an exciting time for her and I pray that she'll make the right decisions.
What's for Dinner: Man! I haven't done a What's for Dinner in a long time! That doesn't mean I haven't been cooking though. I love the cookbook that Mom Z got me when she was here. It's a cookbook for toddlers! I have made tonight's selection twice and C gobbles them up!
1 cooked salmon filet or two small cans (5oz) boneless/skinless salmon
1/4 cup of panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup of mashed potatoes or 1/4 of potato flakes
1/2 of a small zucchini shredded finely
2 tbsp. mayo
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp dried dill
1/8 tsp dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
I also add a tbsp. of wheat germ b/c I cook with it a lot and have it on hand
Mix all ingredients together and work into some patties. Heat a couple tbsp. of canola oil in a skillet set to medium heat and then drop in the patties. Brown on both sides. Once all patties are cooked squeeze 1/2 a lemon and serve. I served mine with baked sweet potato fries. Yum!
