Of Triton Blog Tour: Guest Post with Anna Banks + Giveaway

Today I'm a part of the Of Triton blog tour hosted by Macmillan. So excited about it! Because I adored Anna's books, Of Poseidon and Of Triton. I cannot wait for you all to read this awesome sequel. My tour post is a guest post with Anna, which is a recipe to Galen's heart :) I think it's amazing. Thank you Anna! And thanks to Macmillan Kids there is also an US/Canada giveaway at the end of the post, where you can win one paperback copy of Of Poseidon, one hardcover of Of Triton and one Of Poseidon bookmark. Which is an amazing prize that you should all want to win. Will you try out the recipe? :)


A Recipe for Galen

Humans have this adage that goes something like this: “The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Contrary to popular belief, that doesn’t mean that guys want you to blow affectionate raspberries into their belly button (who knew, right?).  

It means that guys like food. I know. It seems too easy. But guys are simple creatures. Even Syrena guys.

So here is a recipe for Salmon Broccoli Soup.  Trust me, it will wow Galen. It’s something that Rachel whipped up for him one day, and he loved it. (Of course, you’ll have to find some way to get Galen to your house. I suggest promising you’ll babysit Rayna for a solid week if he will come over for dinner. But that’s just me.)

Ingredients:

1 can (15 ½ oz) of boneless skinless salmon
1 pkg (10 oz) frozen broccoli florets
2/3 cup chopped onion
3 tbs butter
3 tbs flour
2 cups half and half
3 cups milk
2 chicken bouillon cubes
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp thyme
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Directions:

Drain salmon, reserving liquid in a separate bowl.
Break salmon into small chunks with a fork.
Cook broccoli to package directions. Drain, then chop broccoli to fine bits.
Sauté onions in butter.
Blend in flour, reserved salmon liquid, half and half and milk, stirring and cooking until thickened and smooth.
Dissolve bouillon cubes in hot soup.
Add salmon chunks, broccoli bits, and seasonings.
Stir well, and heat through.

Humans will love this recipe with a fresh loaf of Italian bread. The bread will go untouched on Galen’s plate though.


Enjoy!
