a tie between red and blue labels zoomed.

My New Smoked Salmon Labels

For those who don't know me.  I make my own canning labels.  Today I decided to make new smoked salmon labels because the other ones are outdated.  I can't decide if I want the blue lettering or the red and if I want the zoomed in shot or not.  Please help me decide.
These are of my twins Aiden and Reese holding jars of smoked silver salmon.

Delicious Vietnam

So my sister, Lynn, convinced me to enter into a food blogging event from Delicious Vietnam to promote and explore the diversity of Vietnamese cuisine.  The two founders a food lovers journey and ravenous couple have some great Vietnamese recipes.

Growing up in Nome, Alaska my mother has adapted a lot of Vietnamese cuisines with local caught food.  Such as Moose pho instead of beef, bun rieu (tomato and crab noodle soup) with Alaskan king crab instead of dungeness, and various vietnamese fish dishes with local salmon instead of maybe the traditional catfish.  Last year I entered a contest and won $100 for third place and our local Fisherman's Fair hosted by Norton Sound Economic Development Company, one of the rules was to make a dish using cod provided by the seafood plant in Nome (  Using my Vietnamese/Alaskan background I ended up making Alaskan Cod Rolls which I posted to my recipes tab.
