The Annual Fish Fry

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Each year for the past... 10 years? At least. Our family friends come over for a fish fry. My Mom makes sure the house is cleaned up, heads in the barn for chores with my Dad and when they come in a few hours later, the house is filled with the aroma of soup, warm bread and fried fish. Actually, the garage smells the most of deep fryer as it does for the next five days, but it's worth it. Did I forget to mention that the kitchen island is now full of at least 10 bottles of wine? 

The fish fry is typically a group effort. Our family friends bring all of the food and cleaned up fish (that they also fished/hunted) - but we all pitch in where we can. This year, I got to be the shaker. Shake 'n Bake wasn't used, but I was tempted to say the well-known line a few times. It was a pre-made breading that makes the fish taste delicious. Enough said.

Where the magic happens.

Pheasant and Wild Rice soup

Figgy Pudding anyone?

Spending time with friends and family is always a treat, but when you can share your time while eating delicious food - it's even better. I look forward to this event every year and always come with a very empty stomach!
