Hey there! I hope you are all having a great week. I had fun walking my feet off at the Fancy Foods show in San Fransisco this past weekend. If you haven’t been to this convention, imagine thousands of food brands from all over the world. The show takes up two huge convention centers across the street from each other! After an hour my stomach was sooo full, I couldn’t eat anther bite! (Stay tuned for my report so I can share all about the up and coming gluten free products that will be hitting stores this year!!)
I was pretty tired by the time I got home, and I wanted an easy dinner that wouldn’t make a huge mess to prepare.
We had a large family breakfast the other day and we served smoked salmon for the bagels. The salmon didn’t all get finished and it had been hanging out in our refrigerator for a long time. I am not sure how long smoked salmon will keep, so I needed a smoked salmon recipe to use it up quickly.
