fast, easy & cheap

I found this recipe in an old edition of Kraft's 'Food & Family' magazine and tried it this week. It was a big hit - all the kids - including Bryce - really liked it!! It is for Fish Cakes, using tuna, May and Stove Top. There are several different variations you can do with it, including using crab, salmon or shrimp instead of tuna; rather than copying them all, just click this link and you will find all the different possibilites for this super fast, easy & cheap meal. (I kept it extremely low-key since making it the first time and hoping for a good response, so I didn't include the relish, cheese or carrots. I'll probably try secretly adding them slowly, since I can already tell the kids we're having something they already said they like!)

I also tried another delicious recipe from the same magazine, but it wasn't quite as big a hit. (Bryce wasn't home). Kate liked it, Todd & I loved it, and the boys tolerated it. It will probably be reappearing on our dinner table again. I will try to post that recipe in the next day or two also.

Here's the fish cakes one... enjoy!!
