VOICE OF THE SALT VALLEY LAKES – May 2006 – Page 31
Beware when fishing - or doing anything else outside!!
By Jan Kroese, Firth, VOICE Office manager Since my Mom and her sisters are no longer living, I guess it is safe to tell the story of a fishing trip gone wrong.
When I was growing up in Seward County, Lincoln Creek ran through the farm owned by my aunt and uncle. At that time, all of my Mom’s family lived in Nebraska and we would go to Lincoln Creek on Saturday night and Sunday to fish.
Guess we weren’t very confident about catching fish, as we always cooked steaks on a special grill my uncle made. We also enjoyed pancakes and bacon on Sunday morning. The men would go off and fish, and the women talked, cooked and laughed most of the night and day.
During one of our summer trips to the creek, my Mom and her sister needed to find a bathroom. They happily went into the trees talking and laughing. When late Sunday afternoon arrived, everyone went home.
1/3 cup teriyakisauce 4fillets of Catfish (8 oz. each.) 2 lb. frozen stir fry Japanese style vegetables 2 T. Oriental sesame oil 1/2 cup diagonally sliced green onions 1 1/2 cups chow mein noodles or bread crumbs
Remove broiler pan from oven, line with foil. Set oven to broil.
On Monday morning, my Mom had a big problem and immediately called her sister, who had the same problem - poison ivy in a private location. They debated who would go to the doctor and tell him what happened. Since my Mom was the oldest, she went into town to the doctor, and then shared the medicine with her sister. They both had a severe case of poison ivy, it was hot weather - no air conditioning, and they were miserable for many days. Needless to say, after that, they were very careful where they found a bathroom.
There he stands, draped in more equipment than a telephone lineman, trying to outwit an organism with a brain no bigger than a bread crumb,
and getting licked in the process.
Bring teriyaki sauce to a boil in a large skillet. Remove from heat. Add fish fillets; turn to coat and let marinate three minutes.
Arrange fillets in a single layer in the broiler pan. Broil three or four inches from a heat source for nine minutes or until browned.
Discard remaining marinade, and rinse skillet. Put vegetables, seasonings, and oil in skillet, cover and cook for five minutes. Sprinkle fish with green onions, and then broil for another minute. Serve immediately with the vegetables and noodles.
If people concentrated on the really important things of life, there’d
be a shortage of fishing poles.
