  1. Greetings Pat.

    Funny because we also made fish cakes yesterday. We made a mountain of them but they were so good that we finished the lot for lunch and dinner.

    Ours had no butter, nor onions, nor carrots. I won’t go anywhere near onions. I’ve always detested them. Ours had EV olive oil, egg, sardines, salt, turmeric and chilli powder. I was a bit heavy with the chilli powder but they were still nice. I will be more careful next time.

    Today we will make a pot of hummus. We all love that here.

    • Hello Dai, ahhh…you love fish cakes too! Wonderful! But yours is the healthier version. Me and the girls love butter . And I sometimes add tumeric too. Please leave some of the hummus for me, will ya? Stay calm and eat healthy, my friend.
