As a quick FYI, my mom's art show was this past Sunday and I'm really proud of her. A lot of people came out to see her work and everyone was suitably impressed. My big mistake was that I didn't set goals for myself like I've done in these things in the past and way overdid it and felt awful. I even went to hot yoga a few hours later and just barely survived.
Tomorrow my friends and I are going to try and get together for Pub Trivia, so I can assume I will have at least one beer there. Hopefully my body wont be too upset with me.
Now, as promised, The Chronicles of Leftover Salmon.
Ok, I'm pretty sure these are my own invention so I will have to vouch for them if someone tries them and isn't pleased.
This is a double portion recipe, or a his and hers if you will. Really easy to split in half OR just save one pancake for the next day.
1/3 cup egg whites (1 serving)
1/3 cup oats (Old Fashioned)
Leftover poached salmon (use smoked salmon or any kind of cooked salmon here)
1.5 tbsp (eyeball this) fat free cream cheese
1/2 tsp baking powder
Salt/pepper to taste
Things to consider adding: scallions, garlic, dill? I didn't have these on hand but if you do, give this a try.
Don't worry if it looks a little runny, it'll get solid on the pan!
Grab half (or divide portion into 4 small cakes) and pour on the pan. It wont solidify immediately but if you agitate the pan and the cake moves, it's probably a good time to think about flipping.
Here's what it looks like once it's flipped.
This whole recipe barely comes to 400 calories (depending on size of salmon leftover) meaning hers was less than 200. It DEFINITELY filled me up while still leaving room for a fruit/yogurt/both that satisfied my morning sweet tooth. On top of that, these babies have TONS of protein and omega-3 fatty acids (hello, salmon!) and fiber (oats!) so I call these a win.
Thats not to say I never waste. I can't EVER use up all my herbs or scallions or celery before it turns bad. Celery is the worst culprit because I feel like even eating it plentifully doesn't allow me to finish just one package before it becomes limp.
Ok, I'm out of here. BTW, I don't know if I'll cook anything at all tomorrow but I do have a Doughy Overnight Smoothie sitting in the fridge, getting all mixed up and waiting for me to blend it tomorrow. Now that I've fine-tuned it, I will post pics etc! =)
