The Egyptians believed that cats absorbed the fire of the sun through
their eyes. At night, the sun was reflected in cats eyes, and so long as their
eyes glowed, the sun would rise again the next day.
The salmon is just season and pan seared in a bit of screaming hot canola oil for 5 minutes on each side. The zucchini is sprinkled with seasoned salt and sauted over medium heat until it just begins to soften.
1 3/4 cup boiling salted water
1 cup cracked wheat
2 tablespoons dried cherries
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
2 tablespoons chopped dried apricots
2 tablespoons chopped onions, cooked until just translucent
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
1 green onion, thinly sliced
Pour the boiling water over the bulgar and cover tightly, let sit for 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
The garden is really hard at work with all this beautiful weather this week. We are supposed to get rain on Saturday which will be well appreciated as we are quite a bit under the precipitation average for this time of year. The bicolor hyacinths are new this year and I quite like them. I also added some new crocus last year as they were getting thin.
