I shared with Ty and Debbie and we enjoyed the fresh fish for lunch (and dinner). I brined a bunch of fish strips and we are going to try to make some jerky tomorrow in the food dehydrator. Also - I looked up a recipe for fish broth and took the fish bones and heads and fins and boiled them up in a pot. I might make some fish soup or fish chowder or just freeze the broth for later use in some other application. Ya see - just when I though I could do no more with striped bass I found a couple new recipes. It's quite the versatile fish.
Fish broth - heads, tails, bones - Oh my!
The only negative effect from my food fest yesterday is that I got a taste of the good life and I don't want to give it up again. I REALLY want some tasty food today. If you remember from one of my previous posts, when I don't (or can't) eat the delicious food around me, I don't crave it or miss it all that much. But when you go off the wagon and start to partake in the goodies, it's like the start of a storm. Tough to shut off once it starts. That's the REAL challenge for me - and for anyone on a diet.
