Tuesdays always seem like the busiest days for me. After teaching a 9:45 class I run home and get stuff done and eat lunch with Anna. Then I make dinner and do things around the house while she sleeps. When she wakes up, we play and then I am off to a 6pm class. By the time I get home, it’s bed time. So this is my nap/get things done time and I need to clean like crazy before Thanksgiving – in 2 DAYS!!


Here is a fun holiday recipe from Dr. Mike Fenster– check out his interview if you missed it!

I think these look so cute! They would be great if you have a holiday dinner party coming up!


Mermaid’s Purse

  • 8 ounces Smoked salmon or gravlax, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. Crab meat
  • 1small hot pepper, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1Tbs parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • ¼ cup red onion, finely diced
  • 1 Tbs capers
  • 12 chives
  1. Assemble all the ingredients together except the salmon and chives. Cut each slice of salmon into ~ 2x2inch square.
  2. Place ~ 1 -2 tsp. of crab mixture in the center of each square.
  3. Pull the corners up together to form a purse and tie off with a chive.
  4. You may place these in a serving vessel, cucumber slice or cracker.
