Fresh Mackeral in the Pot tonight!

I went to the fish shop today. I bought 4 big, humongous Mackeral, at 2 dollars a lb. It comes to, 5 and some change, but they are all cleaned and the heads are chopped off of them...

I cut them in two, and boil them in a pot for 10-15minutes. Do not boil them too long, just until the meat turns white. At the same time, I got some chow and potatoes ready to go.

A bit of butter and salt on top of the Mackeral, and now you are talking something delicious. Just a point to add, there are allot of people who do not like the texture of Mackeral. Some people do not like its thick texture as compared to the lighter Cod, Haddock, ect. But, for many of us, it is a good fish and it is caught locally. You can fry the fish also, and it does taste very good. On the BBQ, or even in the oven. No problemo.

Herring would be good too, and it is. But, the work at getting the bones out, is very hard indeed. Some people like salted herring up along this way, but I never cared too much for the salt taste of herring. On the other hand, I like it fried in a pan. You can remove the bones fairly easily, if you get a certain movement with the fork against the fish. Very good, when it is caught fresh off of the boat.

This is the high time for the Mackeral season around this area. I usually go fish them myself, but I have been so busy with affairs as of late, that I let this go. Maybe tomorrow night, if things permit, I may go fishing. Depends on the weather, and the weather this past month has been much to the rains favor.

Have a fishy weekend, till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
