So, you all know that Minnesota is the land of 10,000 Lakes. I’m pretty sure that isn’t an exact count, but I can tell you that a state with that many lakes likes its fishing. I like fishing, especially in boats, but since we don’t have a boat, I do try and take the kids shore fishing each summer. The kids and I haven’t been fishing for a couple of years, even though I like it–but the kids get plenty of fishing in with their Dad. He has a boat and a cabin, so they get some relaxing time in as well.
This fishing opener this year starts on May 11, 2013–yes, the day before Mother’s Day. Sophia also has the luck of being born on May 15, so many times her birthday falls on fishing opener. She was actually in a boat at one week old…yeah, fishing opener 😀 This year, they aren’t going fishing on the opener, but maybe for Mother’s day we’ll fry some fish together.
Here’s an easy recipe that’s great for making with the kids. You just measure and pour the ingredients into a large plastic bag, add your fish, shake, remove, and fry! Even toddlers can help shake the fish around in the bag. The dill sauce is a perfect match for the fish and again, perfect for the kids to help whip up. We hope you enjoy the recipes.
