Do you remember heading to a carnival or a fair when you were a kid and winning a little goldfish in a bag? I had that experience yesterday times a million! We have tons of weeds growing in our pond, so we decided to get some fish that would eat the weeds, and some edible fish so hubs has something to catch when he goes fishing. We went to a fish farm/store to get them, and we transported them home in plastic bags. If I look like I'm struggling, it's because they were HEAVY!
For people who are interested in fish (i.e. not me unless it's on my plate) we got some grass carp and about 60 catfish. I have a feeling that in a few months I'll be writing a post begging for catfish recipes! Hubs had to get in the pond in his little rain boots to put the fish in. A little water got in them though, and I had to document him pouring it out. Too cute!
Luckily I was well fueled for the adventure with lunch beforehand. I was wracking my brain thinking of something to eat that could include my new favorite homemade chips. Then I realized---just eat the chips! I topped each one with a little wilted spinach and cheese, and ate with a side of green beans and some corn. Guilt free "nachos"!
I also got in a 5 mile run, at just under 45 minutes. Yes! I feel like I'm finally getting comfortable running 9 minute miles on a regular basis.
Did you ever win a goldfish or another prize at a fair?
Yes! I won those little baggies with a goldfish in them a couple of times. Sadly...they never lived for very long once I brought them home! I used to love (ok, still love) arcades and redeeming my tickets for prizes, that was the best.
What was lunch today?
I finally tried making oatmeal savory! Oats mixed with spinach, corn, and some melted cheese. Added some salt and pepper and it was delicious.
