Fresh Fish Saute

Spent the afternoon digging a four foot hole. I had forgotten what pleasure it is to just dig a huge hole like I used to when I was a kid with my brother on the beach for hours. This digging today wasn’t on the beach, but in the backyard of my in-laws. Some previous resident of the home cemented a fence post (now rotting) Way Way Further Than Necessary into the yard. And since KP and I offered to build a new fence, the Old had to come out. It was one of those If-I-Can-Just-Do-This-I-Can-Die-Happy tasks. But, now I can die happy. Next the giant cement chunk I pulled out of a hole.ImageImage

And then we made the best NW Fish Dinner.Image

  1. I love your re-interpretation of the iconic Shawshank Redemption scene in the hole 🙂 So lovely to have those moments with family too, from hole digging (you make me want to go dig in the sand now 🙂 ) to fish feasting!
