    My wife's grandmother is in her 90s and recently asked us to have a fish fry at her house. Well, when she asks me for something, I do what I can to make it happen.

    I loaded up 2 fryers, 14 pounds of fillets from the freezer, bought some popcorn shrimp, fries, and hushpuppies, then headed to east Texas on Saturday morning.

    I setup at the inside edge of her garage and had a great view with a slight breeze.

    All I made was fish, shrimp, fries, and hushpuppies, all of the rest of the goodies below were homemade by the ladies of the family.

    Not great pics, but lots of full bellies!

    Everything looks great! Gotta love a good ol fish fry!
  8. Saturday in Houston was great and sure it was there. Great view with the round hay bales in the distance. Nothing better that a big fry and such great southern dishes. Do you think the lady that made the corn bread would share the recipe?

    She loved every minute of it!

    Hushpuppies are little balls of cornmeal mixed with some baking powder, jalapenos, and buttermilk.  Fry them up and eat em!  Kind of like a fried cornbread.
    I couldn't have ordered a better day!  You're right about the view, it was perfect for the occasion.  We made a LOT of hay this year and it looks like we'll get a 2nd cutting before first frost as well.

    I'll ask for the cornbread recipe, I know she's given it out before.

    What an incredible meal, Cranky. Would she be willing to adopt a fat old Canadian so I can be there for the next meal?

    She hasn't turned a soul away in her 90+ years! I assure you, she'd love to meet you and feed you well. You know you always will have an open invitation down here.

    I love people like that. They usually are great people who improve your life just by being around. You and yours are always welcome here in the Canadian Rockies, too!
