Gone Fishin'

Hello there! It's been a while. I don't know where the time has gone, but there are so many things I want to tell you and catch up on.  First of all, the weather has been BE-autiful here lately!  Last weekend we got to take full advantage and took the boat out on Sunday for a day of fishing and lounging on the water.   It was one of the most relaxing Sunday's ever!  My sister-in-law and her hubby joined us, and well, I don't know how else to say this other than just stating it bluntly...the girl's ruled when it came to the catches of the day!  haha We each caught a flounder, and well the boys, they didn't catch ANY keepers.  I might just like to also add that we also took a break to lay out and start reading the rest of the books in the Hunger Games trilogy (more on that in a moment) while the boys kept trying to catch something without any luck.  Just saying... 

This is the first flounder I've ever caught since I'm usually with my dad or Jeff when fishing for trout or redfish. 
I was thrilled if you can't tell.

On Tuesday night, we (well hubby I should say) made stuffed flounder (recipe was found by my SIL).  It was stuffed with panko bread crumbs, crab, shrimp, celery, onion and seasonings.  Delicious!! 

We paired it with a green salad and sauteed zuchinni and squash.  YUM! 

I just love Spring when everything is bright and colorful and it's still cool enough to enjoy a day outside.  I'm looking forward to many more boating days on the water and tons more fresh fish to eat!

P.S.  We did go see Hunger Games on Saturday!! I just read the book the week before and enjoyed it greatly. I thought it was an easy read and definitely a book I didn't want to put down until the end.  As for the movie, I thought they did a fantastic job; it was a great interpretation and followed the book really well.  Of course it's hard to go in depth on so many of the details, but overall I think it was very entertaining and even hubby enjoyed it although he might never actually read the book...although I'm not giving up on trying to convince him that he should.  :)



  1. You guys have a boat?! Lucky you! Great job on the flounder!
