Tom went fishing yesterday. The governor had opened it up, and Tom took quick advantage. His son joined him, but they maintained social distancing. They got 7 fish. The largest Tom got was 15 inches.
Here are the fish all prepared. About half were frozen for future use.
And here are the trout on the grill with corn on the cob in foil.
And here is my dinner. There is lemon-parsley butter on the fish. Unfortunately the photo did not turn out well.
It was nice to have an extremely fresh fish dinner. And it was nice that Tom could go out on a sunny day, relax, fish and hang out with his son. And I am hoping for more fish in the future too.
Hey, that was a really nice dinner! What a blessing that Tom was able to bring that fish home! It looked so nice on your plate. Maybe he can go again, soon.
When i was growing up in eastern Oregon, my dad and uncle would go fishing for crappie. Sometimes they’d bring home a gingham full! It waa an all day trip to get to the reservoir, catch those yummy fish and bring them home. Our favorite way to eat them was dipped in battter and deepfried. Of course, we couldn’t eat them all right away. After Dad scaled them with a pressure hose, he’d fillet them do we didn’t have bones. Mom packed them in milk cartons, put in enough water to cover them and put them in the freezer. They used to host big fish fries, inviting our friends from church. It was fun.
P.S. Rats! After i carefully topped in GUNNYSACK the silly Kindle changed it to gingham! It gets frustrating some days! Sorry for not proof reading!
That’s OK. What a lovely story. Thank you.
