Greek Salmon

We now have several pieces of salmon in the freezer that we need to work thru and I know there are many recipes for Asian flavored salmon and that was what I was looking for.  But somehow I came across the recipe for Greek Salmon from Delish and since Greek is one of my favorite flavors (especially when Feta is included), I opted to put off Asian until the next time.  Even though I had more salmon than the recipe called for, I followed the ingredients for the topping and here is the pic from their site.

Rao’s Meatballs

After discovering Rao’s Marinara Sauce during an RVing trip to Wisconsin a couple years ago, it has become our go-to as we like it better than any other store-bought version and as well as our best homemade. 

Somewhere along the line Bev came upon the recipe for Rao’s meatballs and they have also become our preferred version.  Even though we’ve made them a couple of times, I can’t find that I ever blogged about them until now.  Bev was making them to have when Kathy’s family visits in June plus to have some on hand so the recipe below is tripled the original.  Click on the link above for the original recipe and this pic of theirs.

Tuna Macaroni Salad Deluxe

We had a couple pieces of Albacore Tuna in the freezer from our Sitka Salmon Shares and I have been exploring what to do with them when along came Chef Dennis’ recipefor Tuna Macaroni Salad Deluxe on his Ask Chef Dennis blog which used canned albacore tuna.  I modified the recipe for the amount of tuna I had and changed the directions a little but you can visit his site for the original recipe and more pics like this.

Swordfish With Tomatoes And Capers

With all of the seafood we brought home from Pensacola, it was time to get serious about eating what we already had on hand beginning with some swordfish.  About nine years ago, we made this dish using a recipe from Ina Garten and Bev decided she was a swordfish fan after eating it.  Since then, we have made and enjoyed several toppings but decided it was time for this one again.

Florida Trip – Days 16-18 - The Campground & Trip Home

It was our last day and with nothing scheduled, so my girls and a few others went into old downtown Pensacola to look around and do some shopping while I puttered around and readied the coach for the next days drive.  Since it was supposed to rain overnight and in the morning, we did as much as we could the day before, including attaching the car.

You may remember that I classify the places we stay as campgrounds, RV Parks, and RV resorts and I would call this a low end RV park as the roads and sites were all gravel but they did have paver brick patios at each site.  Check in was friendly and efficient and we were guided to our site even though it was raining.

Florida Trip – Days 14 &15, NAS Pensacola, Grizzly Axes, Fin & Fork

The big event for Wednesday was a visit to the Pensacola Naval Air Station to watch the Blue Angels practice but unfortunately, we were having some issues and were unable to attend, which was a bummer as this was likely our last chance to see them.  Here are some photos of the flying and the museum from those who went.

Day 13 (Evening) - Treehouse & Birthday

And the second important thing for me was to go to our rally hosts home for an afternoon in their treehouse – yep you heard right.  After years of searching for a lot upon which to build a home, they finally found one which had a Live Oak large enough for a treehouse which was a main criteria.
