Swiming This Morning... - Delray, WV - May 2011

In the early hours of Thursday morning morning...

this 14" rainbow trout was swimming in the cool waters of West Virginia. Thursday night he was broiled and on our dinner plates glazed with a thin layer of clarified butter, sitting along side a colorful vegetable melody and some tasty garlic bread.

However, there's one thing that must be pointed out. This was not an ordinary fish dinner. In true hunter gatherer fashion, Thursday morning the Hub set out to procure dinner for his family, and in particular his daughter, and as a result, the 14" rainbow trout he caught just after 10:00 in the morning became our little girl's first taste of meat.

How cool is it that one day we'll be able to tell her that the first meat that she ever ate was something that her dad went out and caught and prepared for her.

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!
