Now since oldest son is back from college for a few months before he deploys, everyone is trying to get special-lets-make-as-many-memories-as-we-can time with him. So yesterday, my dad took both the boys fishing. They do this every year and it is always a good time and they are just happy to spend the time together. While said men are fishing, my hubby and I decided to go down to the farm and check on the conditions. As we were heading back home, I got this call:
Youngest son: "mom! We cought-supper-where-is-the -fillet-knife-when-are-you-gonna-be-home-i-put-the fish- in -our- fish- pond- so -when- you- get- home -we- can- kill- them- and- eat- them!"
Mom: "are you kidding me? We don't know how to fillet fish! I thought you were gonna catch and release like always?"
Youngest son: "Well, Bubby (oldest son) and I thought we would learn tonight so we brought home four bass and a blue gill"
Mom: "(deep sigh) well get everything set up and we will start this project. We are on our way home."
So this is a little glimpse into my life. We filleted the fish. It took about two hours for them to fillet five fish. The kids watched a video on YouTube and did a pretty darn good job! I was very proud of them and the fish was absolutely amazing! I have never had that fresh of fish. Four hours between catching to table! That is pretty darn fresh!
