Dinner with Emeril...Lagasse of course!

My best friend, Marsha and her husband Kirk were joining us for dinner.

Hmmm.....what to prepare?
Since I had some potatoes that I wanted to use up and some fresh salmon from H Mart... I googled "Salmon and Potato Casserole" and came upon
Emeril Lagasse's tempting recipe.

It was delicious...I tweaked it a bit (only because of the ingredients in my kitchen) but it turned out fabulous! It smelled so good when it came out of the oven...that I forgot to take a picture until we had already busted into it! Four people and we ate half a casserole!

And for Dessert? Gotta use up those browning bananas...so... voila...

"Banana Walnut Cookies with Lemon Icing".


I wasn't sold on the lemon icing...but they were totally yummy!
The flavors blend perfectly!
By the time a couple of my daughters showed up later with a few friends...
the cookies were gone!

Leave me your email address if you would like either of the recipes and I will be happy to send it to you!

If it isn't too much work, I would love the salmon recipe. That sounds so good to me. Thank you so much. Isn't it fun to sit and eat with good friends?

Those cookies look yummy, too bad I don't bake (just not good at it!).

Both look real yummy. Unfortunately...my family are not salmon fans. They're no fun but I would love the cookie recipe if it is not to much trouble. Plz send to amyh549@yahoo.com.
Thanks Carrie!

OK, so now I'm totally tasting (in my mind) those cookies! And the salmon casserole? Sounds great(can't tell you how pretty it is, but the sign of a good casserole is that it's dug into"!

I love salmon but it is not my other 1/2's favorite. That sure sounded like a very yummy comfort food. How fun to enjoy a nice homemade meal with good friends.
Love, Diane
