Fishing and Food in Gananoque - the 2011 version

I was going to share a recipe I made recently that was a flank steak and blue cheese sauce, but then decided I needed more photos to go with the post so that will have to wait until later this week when I make it again.  It will be worth the wait!

So, what to share this time?  We recently went back to Gananoque, Ontario to do some fishing - just like last year (see HERE and HERE).  

This year, our trip began with a rainy day of fishing and eating our shore dinner in the rain.  Not the best way to fish (in my opinion, and I didn't complain out loud), but Our Boys were not phased by the rain.  They were impressed that our guide, Terry, was able to get a fire going with the rain. 

The rest of our weekend the weather was much improved and there was plenty of fish biting at different times.  The boys caught some rock bass, perch and pike.  Even though I am always saying that I'm not a "fishing person", I think the reason I enjoy these trips is because it is such a pleasure ot watch My Boys catch fish, enjoy being on the boat and waiting for the fish to bite and discovering whatever they can while we are on shore for dinner.

Here are some of the highlights from this trip:

We always look forward to the best bacon ever when we are waiting for the fish to be fried up!

Homemade pie for dessert each day!

I'm not the outdoors-y type, but I do enjoy this trip and look forward to doing it again next year.  Of course, for me, it helps that we stay in a cabin so I have some creature comforts.

I am so NOT outdoorsy...but if I had homemade pie everyday, I could fake it.

Thanks, Christine and Maris!

Joanne - the food is worth faking it on this trip! But, once you get home, you need to "detox" and get back to healthy eating again!
