Salmon Patties-quick and easy

I don't have a picture but trust me these are the best and easiest Salmon Patties, I've also made them with canned Tuna.

Salmon Patties
1 can(15-16oz) salmon or mackerel, drain setting aside 2 Tb of juice
1 egg
1/3 c minced onion
1/2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Drain salmon, remove skin and bones if you want to. In a medium bowl mix salmon, egg and onion; stir in flour. Add baking powder to salmon juice, it will foam up a lot; stir into salmon mixture. Form into patties and fry until golden brown. Serve with tartar sauce.

Homemade Tartar Sauce
Mix together Mayo and chopped pickles(sweet or dill) varying the amount of mayo to pickles that makes you happy. I mix about 3T mayo to 1tsp of sweet pickles myself. Any leftover sauce will keep in the frig for a while. Much cheaper than that little bottle you can buy at the store!

Rising Waters

We have had A LOT of rain lately. My DH let me know the creek had risen so I decided to take some pictures of the event. Don't worry we are on high ground with chance of flooding.
