Go Fish!

I eat fish but I suck at cooking it. For starters, I have no idea how to buy fresh fish. It's kind of hard to  tell if it's good when it all smells so - fishy. My mother's great advice for purchasing fish was, "Look at it."

I said, "Yeah Ma, but how do you tell if its good?"

And her answer was, "If you can't tell by looking at it, you have no business buying it."

Instructive, don't ya think? Does wonders for my culinary confidence, too.

Maybe Samu can find out and write a "How To" book like the one he wrote on sand castles.


 "How To Make A Sand C - First get a bucket shells sand a shvel an water,"
I'm surprised he said bucket and not a plastic red cup, because mommy never forgets to pack those for the beach.


"Next fill up the bukcet with sand using the shovel then"

Notice how he made his book a "page turner" - isn't the suspense killing you?

So, about the fish, this article on "10 Best Family Restaurants" caught my eye, when it said about Red Lobster, "It inspires children to eat fish."

Red Lobster inspires children to eat fish, really? Starvation usually inspires my boys to eat anything. Even their own boogers, which they'll eat even when they're full.

You want your kid to eat fish? Go to Molly Bloom's and order their Fish and Chips. It may not be the healthiest way to eat fish but it's swanky! Besides, if you're the leftover garbage can, just be inspired that it'll go great with your beer.

  2. We took Noah to Red Lobster a few months ago and he told us, "I never EVER want to go there again."

    1. Can't fool him - Red Lobster is to seafood, what KFC is to fried, bionic chicken!

  4. No doubt a best seller on Amazon one day!

    The boy's writing is really good. Keep after him.

    I only cook salmon, and even then I buy it packaged from Norway. But as far as buying fish locally, not over here. Stuff grows in the water @ Kuwait. And if you're standing in the right spot on any given morning, you catch a whiff of gut wrenching stench that's just damn awful. Phew!

    1. Wow - you get your pick from Norway?! That certainly beats Salmon from Atlanta.

  5. Don't worry friend, I have no idea how to choose fresh fish too! I just go to the wet market and find the stall with the most customers! Hahaha! :)

    And Samu, I tell you again, will make you a very rich woman someday! I'm sure! :)

  6. I go over to the grocery store and just pick the fish with the newest date on it. There's nowhere to buy it from behind glass here.

    1. Then we have to take you to Citarella - their fish display is super fancy. Still don't know what to buy, but it is fancy!
