 We’re going fishing on Saturday.  I can’t wait. It’s been forever.

 In fact I think the last time we went, we only had two kids. And Grace is nine now.
And we’re going with two of my favorite people. Bobbie and Earl. They’re like second parents to us, and grandparents to our kids.
They’re not rich, they don’t shower my kids with fancy things. They don’t have a fancy house, and they live out in the middle of nowhere. With nothing to do but climb trees, pick blueberries, pick pears,  pick up sticks,  run around,  sit and visit, and just feel like you are home.
It’s one of my favorite places.
Bobbie and Earl are special to me, They’ve held our hand through some terrible times, and they share our joys as well. They accept  everyone for who they are, not what they may or may not have.
And boy can Bobbie cook! That’s where Bobbie and I have a real bond.
The first time I made jelly about 9-10 years ago, I took a jar to Bobbie, next thing I know, she’s cleaning out her shed finding me more jars. Not because she wants me to make her more jelly (though they would be happy to accept it) but because the jars will get used again. She’s like that. When she found out we didn’t have a crock pot, she gave us one of hers (she had 4 or 5) We still use it, I know now why people have more than one. When I’m cooking something and it’s not doing like it should, I call Bobbie. She’s from that generation that cooked, every day, every meal, went through hard times and had to make the most with what they had. I’ve learned so much from her.
We don’t get together as much as we should, but Bobbie and I got talking, and decided we need to go fishing again. We started talking about when, finally settled on a weekend we were both free, and hoped for good weather. As of this morning the weather looks good so this is going to happen!
We’re just going to go for the day, so packing will be easy, but what to take to eat?
I found this recipe over at The Wicked Noodle and it’s moving  to one of my top five favorites,
it’s that good!
