Happy Birthday, Three Headed Chef!

So it's Tom's birthday today.  That means tonight I get to make his favorite Salmon Croquettes and Macaroni and Cheese!  Last year it was Ham Tetrazzini, but hey, he waffles back & forth.  But always the Salmon Croquettes.  I know, it's not healthy or diet or anything . . . I always insist on a side salad (this year with fresh Kale from our garden!) just to have something "green" on the plate.  But it really is sooo good.  So happy birthday Chef-Tom, and Enjoy!

Greek Yogurt & Garlic Salad Dressing

Sorry, no photo for this one folks.  It was so good we ate it all before we even thought about the camera!  You're going to love it, too, and it's so easy to make.  And it's so good for you!  Enjoy.
