A note to Uncle Bob

Dear Uncle Bob,
Just wanted you to know that the 130 heart shaped peppermint patties I made for wedding number 1 were a huge hit. I am telling you this because I know how much you like peppermint patties. The good part of this is that another 30 of them didn't turn out well enough to serve and are sitting in my freezer.

So, if you are willing to do a trade for some chied fricken, biscuits and any other fixens, I would be more than happy to offload these slightly flawed beauties. I might even throw in some chocolate coated strawberries and raspberry nanaimo bars as long as you promise not to eat it all at once and get your blood sugar all up in arms!

We got a deal? Where do you want to meet for the big trade?

(For those of you who are wondering why I am not doing this as a PM, well it is more fun this way )

Uhhhh...I'll do the cornbread, but I've never been fishing in my life. The "bait" might end up being bits of my flesh!

I'm about 8 hours from Montana. I'll set up camp shall I?

Hey I can bait and clean with the best of them! At 6 years old I used to out fish everyone at a little lake in Northern Saskatchewan and fish innerds don't scare me at all!

Just have lots of ice for those peppermints and strawberries!

So, Uncle Bob, if we are bringing dessert, cornbread, doing the fishing, and cleaning, what is your contribution may I ask?

I can clean a bluegill or crappie with the best of them, but I don't fillet the little things. I cut off the head, gut'em and scale'em, wash and dip in Zatarains or other good coating...once.
Kim fries them in Calpholon skillet in just enough hot (350) peanut oil to cover, and then we dive in. I love to crunch the crispy little tail. Then I use my fingers to strip off the top meat and eat it, and then lift out the bones in one piece.
My grandma and I used to have a contest as to who could pile up the biggest hill of bones on their plate.
Grandma always won.

I agree Miss Connie...Don't see the point of filleting the bluegills, chinquapins, etc....I have BIL that does, and he just ruins the fish...throws the best part away...I prefer bone-in fish most of the time for better flavor. I have caught some Crappie "slabs" (2 + lbs.)that the only way you could get them in the pan was to fillet or cut up somehow...Good eats for sure!!!!
