There have been many requests for smaller dinners for two.  So, we decided that I will come on every once in a while with a recipe for two.  Some of the recipes will be with fresh fruit and vegetables.  Some with canned goods.  Some with either or.

I don't have a large garden here in Florida - just a real small one.  There is just the two of us. of course we do share sometimes and give a dinner to someone who is sick, had a family death or just can't cook for them self for some reason.  We don't have a farm so we don't eat as much as we did when we working all day and half the night.  Also, sometimes, certain items, are less expensive to buy  at the store than grow at home.  So here are two recipes for one or two people.

1 cup flaked, cooked sea food (tuna, salmon, shrimp, crab meat, lobster)
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp finely minced onion
salt and paprika (to taste)
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup lettuce hearts in small pieces

If sea food is canned, drain off water or oil.  Lightly mix ingredients in order except mayonnaise.  Chill thoroughly.  Just before serving, toss with mayonnaise to moisten. Serve on crisp lettuce.

NOTE: You may garnish with lemon wedges, hard-cooked egg lices, or shiny ripe olives.  I also serve with corn muffins.


1 tbsp sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup Bisquick
1/4 cup corn meal

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix all ingredients.  Beat vigorously for 30 seconds.  Fill well-greased muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake 15 minutes.       Makes 6 muffins
