Mock Adventures in Dinner- Tuesday Night

My recipe plan for the evening, let's see how it goes :) 

Salmon Patties
Carrots and Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce
Baked Beans
Fresh Fruit with Banana dressing
Ruby Red Tea

For the Salmon Patties I used:

1 14 oz can of Salmon
1 egg
3/4 of a cup of breadcrumbs (I prefer Italian seasoned) 
1 Tbsp of garlic

I opened the can and added all the ingredients to a mixing bowl. I mashed up the little bones with a fork, because it totally adds a neat crunchy and it adds calcium to your meal. I formed them into patties about the size of my hand (I have little hands)
I had fried some bacon to use the grease to add some flavor to the salmon. It turned out to be a mistake. The patties would not fry up properly and kept sticking to the bottom. I then waited for it to cool down and reformed them into patties. I then reformed the patties and put them on a foil lined tin for the toaster oven and broiled them for about 7 minutes. It was pretty successful.

Now, onto the next order of business:

Asparagus and carrots. I used a bag of baby carrots, and I used fresh asparagus with the ends trimmed off. I steamed them in the Rice Steamer (with the steaming basket) for 10 minutes. I used the  I opened a package of hollandaise seasoning from Stonemill and used organic plain almond milk instead of the cow's milk and made it according to the directions.

The baked beans I baked earlier:
I mixed 2 cans of pork and beans, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/8 of a cup of MockKetchup, 3 Tbsps of dehydrated minced onions, and 2 turkey dogs cut into slices into a casserole dish. I baked them for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

The Banana dressing was super simple:
1 banana, 2 tbsps of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of sour cream, and 1 tsp of lemon juice whipped up in a blender.

I didn't get a pic of the beans. I forgot they were warming and I demolished the dinner before I could take a pic of them. :D

This is agreat idea for a quick and tasty (and cheap) dinner. I like the asparagus because it's so versatile, you can make at least 10 different meals with it.
