Oh, a little story to tonight’s fish fry.
One of our neighbors invited us out for fish fry tonight, of coarse we said yes. Problem is that they go to the local bar in our town for their FF. I was torn. The fish and salad bar were great. I also had a cup of soup-Ham and potato.
After dinner I felt horribly guilty, and had a sense of loss. I needed to harass my favorite waitress! The wife and I decided to head to our usual Vickies diner for dessert. :)
I got a piece of Lemon Cream cake. My wife got a piece of Carmel coconut pecan to go.
I’m glad I came, as the youngest daughter/waitress had a graduation invitation waiting for me.

The big question is - what kind of fish? :D :D

And the fish fry, salad, and dessert look great as usual.


Supper last night was smoked brisket, "faketatoes" (cauliflower mash with other stuff added), and collards with some smoked meat added.

Oh, it was cod. Taste was good, guilt for cheating on my waitress with another-bad.

I'm adding cannellini beans to the leftover Jambalaya to stretch it into another meal for two. I caught DH fishing out most of the sausage last night in what was meant to be lunch today.

Dinner is home made corned beef hash. Toast with jelly and eggs will probably be included.

I had to work today, and start 2 hours earlier than normal to boot, so up at 3:30 AM today. No motivation to cook. My wife pan fried some burgers when I got home. She had browned some onions and peppers in the pan with them. She also made up a different sauce to put on them. I think she said mayo, sour cream, and paprika. They were pretty darn good for a frying pan. Then I took a nap. Now wide awake at midnight, go figure.
Later for dessert I had some ice cream. I tried a new flavor. When I was at the store yesterday I grabbed a gallon of Cherry Cheesecake flavored. It was pretty good too!

Sounds like another busy day for you! I can’t imagine doing 200 or more in a day. The only experience I have doing anything like that is helping a friend do her horses and donkeys hoofs. I couldn’t do 200 a day for sure.
Speaking of heat, my truck dashboard said 92 degrees on the way home today. If that’s accurate, I’m sure it broke a record for up here in Wisconsin.

So today’s brunch is pretty boring made me a burrito with some blueberries and sesame seeds with it
We’re getting ready to clip down the animals! My dad said for me to just hang out inside or just come and chill while clipping because I’ve done enough work with the animals so I guess I’m not clipping any animals today.
