Smoked salmon thingos

Heh. More "thingos". Canapes, perhaps? Things very stressed at the moment. Big, scary concert this weekend. Too much difficult music to learn; being done during work lunch breaks with iPod, score and pencil. New Italian language classes with homework being completed during morning tea breaks. Aieeee!
So, a pretty photo and something easy today. Little smoked salmon appetizer thingos made in conjunction with my friend Belinda (who, coincidentally just posted about "chicken thingies") a few months ago when we were performing in Ballarat. Round of pumpernickel (that were tres difficult to prise apart!), light Philly cream cheese, smoked salmon and lemon juice. If we had've been more organised we would have mixed the cream cheese with the lemon juice and a few capers or herbs or something, because the smoked salmon was very rich. But, hey, we were on holiday, we were relaxed, and I think everyone enjoyed them anyway. The blue plate was courtesy of the rental house. I'm not a fan of coloured food platters, (too Playschool) but this worked. The artistically arranged salmon was all Belinda's work. I'm never so neat. :-)


  • Hehe, my salmon does look very neat! Or we could have sprinkled some dill over the salmon!

    Why is it that pumpernickel bread gets stuck? I wasted half a packet the other day because the centre of each slice (big slices not rounds) refused to come apart.

  • aaah so you are a smoked salmon girl too. i wonder how they'd go with a savoury version of your wholemeal pancakes... hmmmm...

    actually i am hoping to make the wholemeal pancakes tomorrow morning... however we dont have any buttermilk in the fridge. do you think i could substitute half yoghurt half milk?
