Food: Dinner Tonight – Salmon Burger

Variation is key to a successful dinner get-together – even for a busy family – who sometimes can’t sit down together for a proper meal. I say, create a menu and put it on display in the kitchen and see just how quickly everyone shifts their schedules around to be present for dinner. Here’s one I’m making tonight. I love Salmon burger and most of the time I order it in restaurants, thinking I can’t make it happen at home. But…this recipe has helped me get over my insecurity about making Salmon burgers:
