We were going to have a rerun of last night's meal and have fresh corn-on-the-cob instead of hash brown potatoes, but...

Glenn's daughter has invited us to her home for a shrimp boil. This didn't require any thought as to what to do.

I got a fresh sockeye salmon at the market and we are grilling that. Sides will probably be grilled asparagus salad and rice.

We got out of bed about 4:30 this morning to be sure to be dockside at 5:45. The boat left at about 6:00.

Out to a spot the captain knows about and in went the trolling lines. The first hit was very quick and netted 2 rock fish. There are 12 people on the boat and there is a 2 per person limit. It only took about 80 minutes to hit the limit (we did have to toss some back as they weren't keepers).

Once back at the dock the mate on board cleaned and fileted all the fish then divvied it all up. Each person took home about 1KG of filets.

Not sure what we are having for dinner tonight..... to go with the grilled rock fish.

Doesn't get any better than that....

I took out a couple of chickens a couple of days ago because I thought we were having company. My son had car troubles so he couldn't make it so we were stuck with two whole thawed fairly big birdies for two of us. Monday night was fried, last night was madras curry, and the last half is going to be cacciatore tonight.....I think I will be done with chicken for a few days, anyway...

I have a small pork roast in the crockpot, happily cooking along with a good portion of sauerkraut (extra caraway seed). Had just shy of a half bottle of beer in the 'fridge so I used it as my liquid. I'll peel a couple potatoes to smash because I love the kraut on top of them, and I'll make a salad so our dinner doesn't look so "blond". Problem with a crockpot for me? I'm getting hungrier and hungrier the longer I smell it cooking.

Frank, I'm envious.

Rock!

CG, love the CP.

We have a couple ears of corn, and a packet of potatoes I'd made to grill yesterday, it's hotter today, so no grilling. And some homegrown green beans. So microwave meatless Wednesday it is!

Plans changed. On the way out of town to pick up our gluten free bread we were "this close" to being rear-ended by a speeding car while we were almost stopped. He slammed on his E-brake, swerved and instead went into the back end of a flat bed tow truck (that had a car on it). I saw the whole thing in the passenger mirror, very scary. No one was badly hurt, but the young man who caused it was pretty shaken up....so were we!

So, we got to the bakery late and had them make up sandwiches so we could eat on the way back as TB has to go to work soon.

We will have the salmon tomorrow.

I'm grilling some Chinese sausage we got at a local shop. Along side we'll have a pasta salad.
