OH, did we have us a fish fry last night!! (Okay, my grammar is bad & that’s usually a pet peeve of mine, but you gotta understand – we had us a fish fry last night!)
Joel took Kristen & Kurt to fish out of the pond Monday night. They caught 13 crappie, the biggest was 10". Joel was outside by lantern light cleaning them & we had "a mess of fish" for supper last night. And yes, I fried them! I usually bake my fish because it’s healthier, but last night I just went crazy. I sliced potatoes in the food processor & stirred them into olive oil mixed with garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary. I layed them out in spirals on a baking sheet & into the oven for 45 min. I battered & fried the fish & we feasted like kings! All that oil in our systems, we’re slicker than Jiffy Lube.
I did get two rows of peas planted Monday and Karra has been working hard on her flower garden. I have 7 hostas up and need to fence them before the chickens find them. All of the ornamental grasses my friend Debbie gave me have fallen victim to the chickens (Karra was not happy) and so have two of my three mums that Joel brought home from work. Destructive little egg suppliers! But hey, Happy Chickens Lay Happy Eggs! We really need to mow our dandelions, but I’ve already had a shower today, have school to do, and need to take the kids out tonight for soccer & dance. Maybe Joel will mow when he comes home with Kurt after soccer. The girls & I will be at the high school FOREVER for rehearsal.
And that’s what’s happening on the homestead.
