"Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers" Review

Here is the link again. Overall the recipe was good, the flavor was nice, I added dill as suggested by some reviewers.

I messed up by only buying a 5 oz can of canned salmon instead of the 16 oz can called for by the recipe, I halved the recipe but I think the consistency of the burger was still a little bit off. One broke up while I was pan-frying it.

My husband ate it all and said it was "okay", I unfortunately did not have enough for my two year old so she had veggie hot dogs and leftover peas and tomatoes for dinner.

I will probably make it again, but chop up the parsley and onion ahead of time, it would make the whole process a lot quicker.

Menu Plan this week (6/22)

I am slacking on cooking because it is so hot!!!

This week's menu plan:

Monday: Salmon Burgers + Green Salad + Sweet Potato Fries
Tuesday: Eggplant Artichoke Parm in Slow Cooker w/Spaghetti (recipe from Southern Living) plus salad and maybe green beans.
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Middle Eastern night: Chick Pea patties (recipe here) + Tabouli and maybe hummus, I don't think I'll make the salad listed in the link. I will use leftover buns that I bought using Target coupons last week instead of pita bread. I am trying to throw away less food.
Friday: not sure, we have family in town starting Friday a.m., so we may go out.

I have not tried the recipes for the salmon burgers or the chick pea patties before, so I'll post later on how they are.
