Oh Mighty Hunter and Gatherer
As soon as I began to post today's recipe, I began to laugh about my husband's Alaskan adventure. My dad invited my husband and two brothers to accompany him on his yearly "Man Trip" to Alaska to fish. Rob, who was raised by his grandmother after his father died when he was a child, was very excited about the expedition. Now I can't fill you in on too many details due to: What Happens in Alaska - Stays in Alaska. However, I can tell you that the men returned with a great bounty of salmon and halibut. Later that night as we were feasting on fish, our conversation went something like this:
Me: "So who caught the fish we are eating right now?"
Rob: "I don't know, any of us could have."
Sara: "How many fish did you catch?"
Rob: "ugh I don't know."
Rob: "I might as well tell you that I'm not such a good fisherman."
Sara: "What do you mean?"
Rob: "Well, pretty much most of the fish we brought home....everyone else caught....except for a few small ones I caught and the one I kicked to shore."
Sara: "Did you say Kicked to shore?"
Rob: "Well, when the Salmon were spawning, they kind of start dying and well....I kicked a fish to shore."
Sara: "oh...wow...um...that's great honey, must be why the fish is so tender."
Good thing he didn't go hunting!
