12/23/2012 Cousins…. sometimes

Cousins… sometimes they are your best friend.. sometimes they are your first playmates… sometimes they annoy you beyond measure…BUT it’s that bond of family that makes life so special!  (These are not my kiddos.)Cousins

12/21/2012 We had a feast! Final recipe post….

We had a feast…. remembered a wonderful day on the river and fantasized about next year’s adventure.  This gorgeous sockeye or his cousin was prepared perfectly.  I say take  a “recipe” and make it your own.  Trust me the writer of this “recipe” did the same thing.

ALWAYS start with wild caught  salmon (my preference is Lower Kenai River sockeye caught in August).  Portion  each filet to about 4-6  oz, place on a square of tin foil 12 inches or so.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice a sweet Vidalia onion and place a generous amount of onion on each filet. (Is there any other kind of onion?)  Sprinkle with Garlic salt, cracked pepper and if you are of the nature a little red-hot chili pepper.  Place a small pat of butter and 2 tablespoons of Meyers lemon juice (fresh squeezed from your own tree if possible.)  Close the package up leaving air space at the top… Cook for about 30 minutes.  Serve each person their own package so they can enjoy the delicious liquid created during the cooking process.

This is so easy to fix, so easy to clean up and is so YUMMY!!   Only 10 post to go!

“True friendship is like a rose. We can’t realize it’s beauty until it fades.” I could not find the author of this quote…. this is so true!  I have many friends… some old… some new… some near… some far…  I had friends before facebook… I love you all.
