You may remember a little while ago, when I talked about the magnificent fish happily caught by my Dad last month on his birthday. I waited, and waited some more, and hope finally faded when I never received a package on my doorstep.

Well, this morning, guess what arrived? And furthermore, guess what we had for lunch today?




Take a few tomatos, peppers,

and onions from the garden,


Put a little butter in your favorite cast iron skillet,










and viola! Best lunch on the planet. We just couldn't wait until dinner.









THANKS FOR SHARING DAD!!!!

Annonymous: Nothing like a nice fresh caught fish for breakfast!

JJ - Shhh - okay, I cheated on the final piccie but it's only because the one I had (the fish was smothered in onions) wasn't as pretty as er... well, Martha's :) But it tasted better I'm sure.

Lime - Who needs napkins... it was gone to quickly to worry about being tidy LOL

Lisa - Now you're talking. We dang near DID eat all that butter - it wasn't as good as sweet Icelandic butter but it did melt in our mouths :) "Um, may I please have a little fish with my butter?"

Keshi - Oh, man, sorry mate - we polished it all off - *fans her face to revive her*...

Soe - But Iceland has such fabulous canteens, yes? What's on the menu today?

Nessa - Yes, lucky and blessed. A meal of bliss ~but it's gone now~.

Jealousy is a sin...call me a sinner.
Lovely presentation and beautiful photos...What are the purple flowers...borage?

tsduff said...

G - although are garden suffered terribly this year due to our absence from home several long weeks, we still enjoy home grown better than store bought like you city slickers have to put up with...

Mo'a - I stole the final presention photo, I cannot tell a lie (another sin LOL) but the flowers are basil gone wild.

Whoaa! :)

Looks delicious. I don't think I ever grew onions in our garden. We had a cow when I was a kid and I had to sit and pump that churn thing until we could scoop butter off the top.
I didn't know you could send fish in the mail. Wouldn't it spoil or something before it got there?
