Salmon with Peas on Toast

When my kids were growing up I used to make them one of my favorite meals—Mom's Creamed Salmon on Toast. We usually enjoyed it when Ms. Sandwalk was away from home.

Now that they are adults, my children never lose an opportunity to make fun of Dad's cooking and how they were forced to eat salmon when Mom was away.

Now the joke's on them ... or at least on my son, because ...

Teenage boys who eat fish at least once a week achieve higher intelligence scores. Looks like boys get smart by eating salmon. It explains why my son is so smart. It also explains why my daughter never appreciated salmon and peas on toast. It doesn't work on girls.1

1. I don't believe the study. It's ridiculous to think that eating fish is all it takes to make you smarter. If that were true then Newfoundlanders would be smarter than cowboys or vegetarians ... hmmmmm, come to think of it ....

P.S. Just in case there is someone out there who doesn't get my sense of humor, here's a link to a posting about my daughter [Another Dr. Moran]. And just so he doesn't feel left out, here's a link to my son's website [Gordon Moran].


  1. Actually I love most fish, this looks good to me, only leave out the salmon, use something else. Salmon is a vile tasting flesh - much like liver.

  2. And here I was thinking that my good grades in school were due to my solid upbringing, good genetics, and helpful parents... oh well, guess it was just the fish!

  3. Clearly, this study is biased because everyone knows vegetarians are smarter than non-vegetarians. I read about it in Veggie Times. Besides, your recipe doesn't have any cilantro, so I doubt it's very good anyways.
