Happy Thursday FLASHERS~

I know that most of you will be glad to hear that we are bringing back our 'Positive Person' feature in August! We know that this is always a favorite of our FLASHERS and we look forward to once again shining a 'FLASH-light' on those who devote so much of themselves to making a difference in the lives of others and to impacting our community in such a positive way.  There truly is nothing like the heart of an individual who is willing to take time out of the busy day-to-day schedule to focus on others. Team FLASH has had the absolute pleasure of bringing on a summer intern this year. Ashley Brown has been working on the Positive Person features and I know you will enjoy
Ashley Brown
her writing style when we roll it back out in August.  Our hope is that we can continue to count on you to nominate adults or students that are deserving of the 'Positive Person' title.  It's so easy! Just click here to nominate someone. Spotlighting those who give so much of themselves is something that I personally enjoy a great deal and having our FLASHERS input makes it extra fun! What I find is that often those who take the time to nominate are quite worthy of the recognition as well.  What a great community we live in! Vero Beach truly is the small town with a great big heart! Thank you in advance for your nominations and thank you Ashley for helping FLASH this summer!  You are an absolute delight!

LADY'S YEARLY EXAM

I went to the doctor for my yearly physical.
The nurse started with certain basics.

"How much do you weigh?" she asked.
"135," I said.
The nurse put me on the scale.

It turns out my weight is 180.

The nurse asked, "Your height?"
"5 foot 4," I said.
The nurse checked and saw that I only measure 5' 2"

She then took my blood pressure and told me that it is very high.

"Of course it's high!" I screamed, 'When I came in here I
was tall and slender! Now I'm short and fat!"

DUCHESS KATE'S MATERNITY STYLE

 

  As we write this, the whole world is awaiting the birth of the future king or queen of England and Kate Middleton has gone into seclusion until the big event. Here at Flash, we're big fans of the Duchess of Wales and have especially admired her elegant taste in maternity clothes. Instead of the form fitting styles so many pregnant American gals (including Kim Kardashian pictured here) are sporting, Kate opted for loose fitting or empire waisted garments that didn't hide but didn't flaunt her 'baby bump!'  To view her choices, Click Here

  RECIPE OF THE WEEK

 

Salmon Burgers

Adapted From Food Network

  • 1 1/4 pounds fresh salmon filet
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons panko crumbs, plus extra to coat patties
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • sandwich buns
  • fresh arugula
Directions
  1. Pulse 1/4 pound salmon in a food processor with 2 tablespoons dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest and a pinch of cayenne pepper. 
  2. Transfer this mixture to a medium bowl and mix with 1 pound of salmon that has been finely diced. You want it to be a little chunky so you can really taste the salmon. Add in 2 chopped scallions, 2 tablespoons of panko crumbs, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. I used a cookie cutter about the same size as my bun and pressed the mixture into the cutter to create uniform sized patties. Pressing the mixture into the cutter also helps it keep its shape. Place on an oiled cookie sheet and chill for at least 30 minutes. You want the patties good and chilled so they will retain their shape. Heat canola oil in a cast iron skillet on medium-high. Cook the patties about 3-4 minutes on each side. You want them to cook through, but be careful they don't burn. Don't let the oil get too hot.
  4. Drain the patties on a paper towel.
  5. Toast buns, top pattie with dill sauce and fresh arugula.
