Recipe: Tuna Cakes

I brought home this huge bag of tuna from the foodbank (they have reams and reams of it and are having a hard time getting rid of it).   So I thought today I'd make up some tuna dishes, so to eat now, some to eat later. 

First up: Tuna Cakes.  Hubby requested I make these.  I made a small one to tempt my son and to my complete shock the rest of the tuna cakes disappeared almost instantly. :)   His enthusiastic "you can make these again" warmed my heart.  :)

 I used this recipe


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 10 tablespoons Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3 (5 ounce) cans tuna, drained
  • 3 tablespoons diced onion
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 



  1. Beat eggs and lemon juice in a bowl; stir in Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs to make a paste. Fold in tuna and onion until well-mixed. Season with black pepper. Shape tuna mixture into eight 1-inch-thick patties.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; fry patties until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
I'm reading this recipe over and realized I forgot one ingredient: The bread crumbs.   But it turned out so well it surprises me.  :)   Next time I'll put in the bread crumbs  :) 

My thoughts: YUM!!
Hubby's Thoughts: These are good
Son's thoughts: A request I make them again.

Look, Hear, Set your Heart

Today we are reading from Ezekiel 40:1-4. Last time we met we learned about how He will Pout out his Spirit. You can read more in my Ezekiel Studies here and here.

Once again the hand of the Lord comes upon Ezekiel.   He was brought to the city where he saw visions, in those vision he was on a very high mountain and and he saw a structure
like a city down to the south.

He saw a man like bronze with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand standing in the gateway.

 And the man said to me, “Son of man, look with your eyes, and hear with your ears, and set your heart upon all that I shall show you, for you were brought here in order that I might show it to you. Declare all that you see to the house of Israel.”

This vision is going to be something Ezekiel has to tell the Israelites!   He needs to see this thing.  ACK!!!   I can hardly wait!   I find myself sitting here eagerly anticipating what this man in bronze is going to show Ezekiel.

As I realize that I wonder... do I go to church like that?   Do I regularly approach God's word with the eagerness.   Right now I am listening to a fascinating book called Ariel and I am just enjoying this book and want to hear what happens next.  I compare those two feelings...this one of wanting to know what the man in bronze has to say and What will happen with the dragonriders in Ariel.

And you know what... right now it's the same.  I want to know... but I know if life gets busy I can put off that anticipation.
