SO I have 2 unexpected guests for dinner today (thought my brother and niece were not coming over till tomorrow morning). Bro is 6'5" and eats...a lot. He's also a low-carber (or was when he last visited almost 2 years ago). Niece is a low to moderate carber.

I have 1.4lb filet of salmon, which seems maybe a tad skimpy for this crowd. So I was thinking of thawing out maybe 3 Phillips crab cakes and spreading the crab across the top before baking the fish. What say you?

I don't have enough broccoli (coz we ate a bunch of it ourselves last night w/rotisserie chicken-), so green beans it is, and I could fix some cole slaw. For dessert I can offer yogurt with homemade strawberry rhubarb sauce or matcha tea ice cream. I could fix homemade guacamole and blue corn chips & veggie sticks for an appetizer. And chill a bottle of white wine.

Do you think my "stuffed salmon" idea will work well? I've never done that sort of thing before.

Fixing jambalaya and cauli rice tomorrow (when younger bro will join us), lamb chops & brussels sprouts Tuesday Or maybe take-out pulled pork or ribs from the farmer's market on Tuesday ;-) Elder bro offered to buy takeout for our lunch tomorrow. Too bad the excellent local thai joint isn't open for lunch any more (darn covid!).
