    @The Duke

    A beautiful day here as well; which translates into yard work.

    I made another favourite for supper last night.

    Simple but filling.

    Creamed Salmon on Toast (In two parts)

    “White Sauce”

    From: “Canadian Fish Recipes”

    Issued by: Department of Fisheries of Canada, Ottawa
    Published by: Edmond Cloutier, C.M.G., O.A., D.S.P.
    Printer to the King’s Most Excellent Majesty, Ottawa, 1951

    1.Thin (for soups)

    1 tablespoon butter
    1 tablespoon flour
    1 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    2.Medium (for vegetables and fish)

    2 tablespoon butter
    2 tablespoon flour
    1 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    3.Thick (for croquettes)

    3 tablespoon butter
    3 tablespoon flour
    1 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    Melt butter in top of double boiler.
    Add flour, mix well and cook one minute. Add milk gradually, stirring constantly until thickened.
    Cook two minutes. Add seasonings.

    Variations of Medium Sauce

    Cheese Sauce: Add 1/2 cup grated, Canadian cheddar cheese.

    Oyster Sauce: Add 1/2 cup chopped, cooked oysters with their liquid.
    1 teaspoon lemon juice may be added.

    Mushroom Sauce: Add 1/2 cup chopped, cooked mushrooms.

    Egg Sauce: Add 1/2 cup chopped, hard cooked egg.

    Celery Sauce: Add 1/4 cup finely chopped, cooked celery.

    Notes from me:

    The milk called for is whole milk.
    A very much easier way of making any version of this sauce is to melt the butter over very low heat. Add the flour and stir until smooth. Raise the temperature to about 1/3 of the dial and cook until the mixture begins to bubble and change colour, about 1 minute. Add the milk, salt and pepper and raise the temperature to about 2/3 of the dial and stir constantly until the sauce boils and thickens.

    A croquette is a fried breaded roll or ball of mashed potato, minced meat, etc.

    The number 2 sauce is the handiest white sauce I know. I use it at Thanksgiving to cream cauliflower or Brussels sprouts. Number 1 sauce makes an excellent base for onion soup.

    “Creamed Salmon on Toast”

    White Sauce Number 2, above.

    1 cup (approx.) canned salmon, (any type) drained
    1 cup cooked peas, corn, green beans, carrots, etc. (or one cup total of any kind of vegetable mixture)
    2 slices of toast, buttered to taste
    Add the salmon and vegetable(s) to the sauce, and heat through.
    Spoon over toast.


    Makes 2 or 3 servings

    Notes from me:

    This works well with canned tuna, too.

    “Kitty Rocks the House” by Carrie Vaughn releases today!!

    My local Chapter’s store says they’ll have 9 copies on hand.

    Kitty is a werewolf pack leader in Denver, who also associates with vampires. It’s a good series.

    good morning and happy tuesday locos A few more days left of tabby’s bday celebration, but will she show up? Shika happy passover sounds correct. I won’t be having a sedar, but my family down in FL will be.

    On to today’s holidays. As already mentioned, today is the first (of 8) day of Passover. India has Dolyatra. Hawaii is celebrating Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole Day.

    From the pamphlet entitled:

    “HAWAII THE ALOHA STATE NEW YORK WORLD’S FAIR 1964-1965 SOUVENIR RECIPES”

    Published by:

    PINEAPPLE GROWERS ASSOCIATION
    215 MARKET STREET
    SAN FRANCISCO 5
    CALIFORNIA

    MAUI FIZZ

    Garnish each drink with a half slice of pineapple.

    One recipe makes 2 frothy drinks of pineapple and rum.
    A delightful eye opener for brunch.>br>
    Whir 3 ounces rum, 2 ounces lemon juice, 4 teaspoons bar sugar, 1 egg, and 1 canned pineapple slice with ice in electric blender. Strain into two 10-ounce glasses. Fill with charged water.

    Notes from me:

    Charge water is club soda.

    bar sugar also goes by bakers’ sugar, berry sugar, castor sugar

    I find it interesting to note that blenders were so new then that they had to be specified as electric.

    The wording is exactly as it appears in the pamphlet, and the formatting as close as I could get it.

    Hi JFri! Hi marg! Your weather sounds lovely and warm. I thought that 6 degrees was warm, but you two beat me.
    Dry, it is bright and sunny here too. I love it.
    Akenta, thanks for plying us with holidays. That is one LONG name for the Hawaiian holiday.
