Rachel Ogden is an emerging artist who chose the popular TALL SHIP beer by Garrison Brewing, who is one of the pioneers of craft brewing in Nova Scotia. There once was a time when there was really just them and Propeller. This little painting measures 5" x 7", acrylic on canvas and will quench your thirst anytime.

Lynn gave us a great recipe as well, to inspire us all the next time we are heading out to a picnic or potluck. It's below! Have a great weekend everyone!
Cajun Salmon with Fresh tomato salsa
6 ripe tomatoes, peeled & chopped (nothing better than straight from the garden!!!)
1 small spanish onion, chopped
1 tsp each -- coriander, basil & chives
1 tsp Dijon mustard
3 tsps red wine vinegar
3 tsps balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt / pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together - even better if you do a few hours ahead & refridgerate.
4 fillets or salmon steaks
1/4 to 1/2 cup Cajun spice mix
1/4 cup butter
Dredge salmon in the cajun spice. Add to oven safe fry pan. Sear both sides using enough butter they don't stick. Then place skillet in 400 degree oven for 5-7 minutes until fish flakes.
The cool salsa with the spicy fish is a great combo!!!
