Living Off the Land

Grilled Kokanee with Sugar Peas & Wax Beans sautéed w/ green onions

Above is what I made for dinner last night.  The veggies were harvested from the garden.  This is about the last of the sugar peas and the beginning of the yellow wax beans.  I sautéed them with green onions growing in the garden.  My husband and sons fished out many Kokanee from a local lake and brought them home.  This is an example of how our family often eats.  I am proud of their sportsmanship.  My sons are very proud to provide their mother with meat for the family; it also gives them a sense of purpose and usefulness (we all need to feel useful & needed).  The kokanee was simply dressed with olive oil, dill (which does grow in my garden – but I was lazy and used dried), salt and lemon over the bbq.  We smoked the rest of the fillets.

This is where the blog starts going into the topic of hunting and fishing.  That time of year is around the corner; What time?  Fall – The Hunt…..As we round out the vegetable growing season, look forward to topics including canning and hunting game meat to carry the family throught the winter months back into next Spring.
