Recipe For Salmon Pasta

I love the saying “it never rains, it pours”. And this past week, it seems to apply to me very well. Last Thursday night I lost my charm bracelet which has a charm for each year we have been married. Then I decided I would make a pasta dish for our Sunday night supper. I am using up all our tinned ingredients as I want to only eat fresh food where ever possible, and so I created a pasta dish using tinned salmon as that is what I had in my pantry. I decided to take some pictures of the unfinished dish, to see how they would compare to the end product. I then placed the pasta into the cold oven to ‘store’ it there until we got home from our wine tasting, but I ended up knocking the edge of the dish against the edge of the oven, and the pasta ended up all over the floor, between the (non removable) door of the oven, and under the oven. It was a mess which had to be painstakingly cleaned, morsel by morsel. I was so grateful for the photo’s I had taken, as the end product was not very pretty at all. Dave says the flavour is good, so I am sharing with you my ‘disaster’.

  5. I’m so sad that your bracelet never turned up. I’m sure you’ve looked everywhere you possibly could. Maybe you need to have something special like that, but different, for every seven years of your marriage. Dave can start saving now. 😉 These kitchen accidents do happen, but at least it was salvageable and still looks so tasty. Hugs xx

  6. Miserable about your charm bracelet, and when that dish hit the floor you must have almost wept! Knowing all the work necessary to get all that clean again. Don’t give up on the bracelet though these things have a habit of being found again. I once lost three rings off my shrinking fingers in a london winter and in spring after the man had come through to clean the gutters they were all left twinkling in the sunlight – found and returned to me by the neighbour who had heard me lamenting their loss. I was amazed! have a much better day today tandy!! c

  13. Oh dear, it happens to us all. I once went to a food demo that Anthony Worral Thompson did at a BBC Good Food show and he dropped the dish too. He was rather under the influence at the time though 😉 Still, I´m sure it tasted fabulous and I am holding out hope that the bracelet will turn up…

  15. That sounds great, I love salmon – more the fresh than the tinned, but whatever is available really.

    So sorry about your bracelet, it is so hard to lose the stuff with emotional ties

          1. you just have to start a new one,. first charm to represent what was lost, and a better catch and safety chain on it as well

          2. a better catch and a safety chain is a great idea! I think however that the one charm must have caught on something a caused the bracelet to break. I will try and make sure that I don’t get more of those type of charms 🙂
