Friday Favorites-4.2.21

Hey There, Friday!

I'm here with a little short and sweet post sharing a few FAVORITES.  Just like every Friday, I'm linking up with Andrea and hope you do too!

Super appetizing pic and blurry-bhahaha!  BUT, I wanted you to see the egg roll-one of my FAVORITES from growing up!  Lots of you asked for asked for the recipe and here it is...

-Egg Rolls-
1 pound of ground beef
Half of a finely chopped onion
3/4 of a bag of slaw mix {back in the day my mom would shred an entire head of cabbage-but who has time for that}
Soy Sauce
Egg roll wrappers {you'll find these in the refrigerated produce section}

Brown the ground beef with the onion.  Drain any excess grease.  Add the slaw mix or cabbage and allow it to steam.  You add the soy sauce to taste and kind of bring to a boil but then turn it low/medium to let the cabbage cook to tender.

Then you add about a tablespoon and a half of the mixture to the egg roll wrap.  Directions for how to wrap are on the package.  They're WAY better if you fry them but we put ours in the air fryer. 

You could substitute ground sausage for a little more flavor.  The recipe makes about 20 egg rolls.  I also like the filling itself-if you want to make a little extra to eat outside of an egg roll.

As I was asking my mom for the recipe, she just kept saying she thought I liked them so much because it was a childhood thing.  :)

I'm not sure I'd say this is a FAVORITE...but you know how your phone is always listening?  I don't remember the last time I was talking about cracked heels but apparently my phone just knows me so well.  This popped up on my IG feed this week.  I have no doubts my heels need these.

I have a pair similar to these and they really help.  I put moisturizer on my heels and instead of soaking into a sock, it stays on that gel pad on my heel.  Random FAVORITE-if you get dry heels too.

Friends, I've got nothing but super riveting content today...cracked heel socks and canned salmon recipes.  😂😂😂😂😂  But lots of you asked for the recipes so I'm giving you want you want.  It's one of my FAVORITES...

Salmon Recipe
3 cans of the salmon {don't drain and pictured above}
almost 1 sleeve of saltine crackers crushed {leave about 4 crackers out}
2 eggs beaten

Mix it all together and this should make about 9 patties.  {a little smaller than a burger}  Spray your nonstick pan with olive oil spray.  Cook until they're brown on both sides.  Probably 5-10 minutes depending on how quickly you cook them.

Again, super simple but that's how we do it.

*********************

And lastly the most FAVORITE of the week...
A Savior who died on the cross for me and for you.  A Savior who loves us so much He sent His son to bear the burden of our sins, shame, and sorrow on the cross.  How thankful I am for Jesus.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Our weekend holds a volleyball tournament, a baseball tournament, and celebrating that our Savior is Risen!  Hope you have a great Easter weekend!

I probably haven't had salmon patties in like 20 years. I'm going to have to fix that next week.

Salmon patties! Your Midwest raising might be showing! Carbondale, IL girl here and growing up salmon patties was basically all my mom knew how to cook. Have a great weekend!

i have always wanted to make egg rolls of different kids but never able to find egg roll wrappers at the store.

Where is your teal tie dye top from?

Joanne said...

I didn't even see the egg roll at first! LOL. I couldn't understand what photo you were talking about for at least a few minutes.

Those socks are intriguing! When do you wear them...just at night after you put lotion on? Do you have to wear them every night for them to be effective?

Unknown said...

I am curious since you are a Missouri person like me. Do you have mac and cheese with your salmon patties? Those were two things that always seemed to be served together when I was growing up?

My mom made salmon patties using the same recipe growing up. The only thing she did different was she put a little oil in a pan to fry them up. I made them when we first got married and my husband always loved them. I haven't made them in years though. I wonder if they would do well in the air fryer?!
