Live Action Quick Tips

Did you know….

A croquette is a small patty made from meat, potatoes, or vegetables. These ingredients are mixed together, then coated with breadcrumbs and deep fried to create a golden, crunchy outer shell. While the croquette can serve as both a snack and a full meal, it’s most widely prized for its portability, which makes it a popular convenience food. The name croquette is likely derived from the French verb croquer, which means to crunch.

Many people mistakenly believe that this food originated in France, but it can actually be traced back all the way to the early Roman empire. The Romans used a pastry-like coating around meat or vegetables to create a dish known as rissoles. This recipe spread throughout Europe over time, and by the early 18th century, the French were the first to use breadcrumbs in place of the traditional pastry coating. The first written record of the croquette in the United States came in a late 19th century cookbook. Croquettes remain popular in various forms throughout Asia, Europe, and the Americas.(wisegeek.com)

Mom’s Recipe: 

Frances Dampier’s TasteBook Recipe

Happy Sunday everyone!!

Another day for peace and relaxation before we all wake up with a case of the Monday’s and get back into our work routine.

Every day can be a happy day when you wake up with a fabulous breakfast! Let’s talk about it….

Just like on Saturday’s, my family always starts our day off with food for the soul; and what better day to feed the soul but at home with the family right before getting ready to go to church to feed the spirit as well.

Today I was in for a special treat for breakfast as you are in for this special treat right now my friend!

I woke up to a smell that brought me back to the days of old. When I was a young lad and my Mom who was raised in Mississippi would call me and my brothers in from outside saying “Boooys, Come on in.. Dinner’s Ready!”

We would run in the house as quick as we could and this sweet smell of some mystical creation by my mother’s hands was laying on the table.

“What were these cake looking things?” I would say to myself.  I don’t know but knowing my Mom they were tasty.

I would take a fork and slice it oh so gently since it was so easy to pass the fork through and when I bit into this fried cake it gave me the utmost satisfaction as a kid.

It was light and flavorful with a crunch added to it that leaves you in a mode of excitement upon every bite. It leaves you begging for more and more and it really gets interesting when you add a mustard dip. Now the party really can get started!

This is how I felt as a kid growing up so when I walked down the stairs this morning and smelled this southern delight of enlightenment of the soul I dug in quickly.

All the memories came back instantly of my childhood; the sweet taste of the salmon, combined with this fried crunch which left me in awe as I continued down this freeway of desirable satisfaction.

Combined that with eggs for breakfast and this makes the perfect meal of choice for an exotic and elegant morning experience. True live action eating!

If you have never tried Salmon Croquettes then I highly suggest you take the time to make this with my Mom’s recipe on the top of this blog. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

You can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner and they always will leave everyone at the table completely satisfied. I recommend making a spicy mustard sauce for dipping as well. I found a recipe you can use here:

Well thanks everyone for joining me on today’s adventure! I look forward to seeing you on the next run! Keep hope alive!

Eating is an enjoyable way of life.Live it..Learn it..Love it!
