Salmon Cakes

1 can salmon, flaked
1 Tablespoon grated onion
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
2 eggs slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Cooking oil

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir together. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat until it sizzles when a drop of water is placed in it. Divide salmon mixture into eight parts; shape each part into a round cake. Cook in hot oil in a heavy skillet, turning once, until each side is browned. Serve with mushroom soup or cheese sauce.

My mother, Doris Hill, collected this recipe and wrote it by hand on a recipe card for her files.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
