Have done a few charters in the last week and have brought home plenty of fish. In fact, so much fish that I have been eating it nearly every day for lunch and dinner. ( Had venison steaks one night just for a change.)

Pan fried Snapper with salad mostly but have varied my diet with Snapper baked in cream & white wine, lemon marinated fish in coconut creme, Cajun seasoned Snapper etc etc etc.


Here is tonights dinner.....................Fish Tacos, served with a side order of................fish!!!!

Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Looks delightful and should taste terrific. Sadly for me, my med condition and general laziness limits my food selections. I keep several premium-quality lowfat chicken or fish entrees in the freezer, those w. their own veggies and sauce, high protein and low calorie. Taste is pretty reasonable for frozen food. I also eat lots of fresh fruit, fresh veggies, salads, top grade canned tuna, and other high nutrition / low danger foods. I don't cook for myself much anymore.

    When girlfriend & I do go out to dinner, it's when I choose a mid-range course through the menu, avoid too much really bad foods, concentrate on grilled or baked, and I manage to work the compromise fairly well.

    Any extra weight gives me real trouble these days, so I've got to stay on track much of the time, with only an occasional splurge. But I'm now under 170lbs and feeling great.

    Last weekend, girlfriend & I were having lunch in our fave pub, and an old friend of 16 years walked past me twice, not recognizing me at first due to the nearly 100 lbs I've lost. Hearing her say that was a boost, believe me.

    So I mitigate. I try to find reasonably tasty gourmet frozen entrees and dinners that are lowfat and low calorie and fill in with salads, fresh veggies, and fruit. Yes I do miss chomping a thick, greasy, calorie-laded burger and fries, but I don't miss the waistline and increased cholesterol.

    Sigh. Gettin' older sucks.

    That looks delicious. I grew up on the 'high plains,' so I'm not a fisherman. But I can eat fish with the best of them.

    My wife cooked some baby back ribs like a pot roast. Just to do something different.

    My 89 year old mother tells me that they fried ribs at those hog-killing parties they used to have when the first cold snap arrived, every fall. If fried ribs are as good as she claims, roasting them in the oven ought to work, too.

    Looks good! :up: I never have developed a taste for fish tacos, though. Have you tried blackened snapper fillets? They're pretty darned good eats!

    Supper last night was Jack Daniels pulled pork sammiches and homemade mustard tater salad with lots of pimento pepper and onion. This morning the 'toothless wonder' is speaking some smelly rhetoric. :vomit: My cat refused to lie on my lap due to the hazmat nature of the gas. :tooth:

    Aint that the truth.

    Last night, I was on my own for dinner, so I did a pseudo-stir fry with whatever was in the fridge. Ham steak, edemame, and a whole bunch of spicy stuff. It was really good.

    Tonight? venison.

    Lately I've been making a dish I discovered in the Phillipines called "Lumpia". It's ground pork, shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, and garlic, stir-fried together and then rolled up a tablespoonful at a time in an egg roll wrapper and deep-fried. Serve with whatever spicy sauce your plumbing can tolerate. I'm usually good for 8 to 10 of them before I get so full I just can't eat any more!

    Not sure about tonight, might be leftover spaghetti, or I might be lazy and just nuke a couple of chicken potpies. Wife is in a class all week and gets home wore out.

    Oooh! That sounds like my wife's eggrolls - delicious. She thins out some apricot preserves and adds garlic, horseradish, and butter to dip them in.

    I'm hungry.

    I will say that fish tacos or fish enchiladas are excellent. And properly cooked, can be low calorie and will fit nicely on my lowfat diet plan. Yum.

    Wife's on the war path about something.(No it wasn't me for a change). How ever I'm the one feeling the brunt edge so it'll probably hot tongue and cold shoulder for me. Just might try and cheer her up and offer to take her out for supper. (If I can work up the courage!:tooth:)

    Well, since I'm a veterinarian and don't eat meat I'm going to have a nice plate of fried tofu and bean sprouts. Found some great vegan recipes on the Sierra Club websitet!
