Kayaks, no license needed. 5 Cod per person per day, or 15 per boat max but three
people need to be on the boat.

On a kayak that means two max as those puppies are like carry-on luggage.

Our boat is out of the water, needs work. No dock fees in Newfoundland...we all help build and share. No bait needed. Just
a jigger.

A few books on spices. One is called the Encyclopedia of Spice and Herbs, or something
like that. Gives origin, history, uses, etc. Very good book. The only one like it that has
all good reviews on Amazon.

Love leeks. So expensive. I need to find the variety that does well in my climate. Or
just focus one it and give it better care. I get index finger size. My neighbor grew
massive stalks last year but did not know the variety or knew what to do with it.
Win-win, he gave them to me.

The big green tops make great stock!

Made lobster stock so with the leek/veg stock I'm planning a seafood chowder and/or
a lobster/Cod cheek risotto. Had 5 lobsters for the two of us. Froze one for chowder, 1.5 made
lobster rolls last night, night before had a 'boil-up'. Cheap eats because they are free.

Mussels, Cod, and scallops are free from the sea so lots of that.
Yum to all of that!

Scallops need a license and wet suit/diving gear. Not many do that so there is an
abundance in the harbour. The few that do, that we've met over the years, use our
bathroom and shower if needed and sit by the wood stove and cup of tea/snack.

Nice short visit. See them just about every year. Always a pleasure and a
dozen scallops the size of a hockey puck is gifted.

Remind me to hate you just a little bit! Lobster is sooooo expensive here. Scallops are soaked and tasteless and the mussels are just sad here.

Making homemade tomato sauce with mushrooms and brats sausages in it. I don't like the italian sausages offered done here, so will use some brats from Windthorst Meats- next town over. With basil from my flower boxes, mushrooms and wine also. It's cooling down now, and should be good when reheated later on. Will add more basil, salt and some butter to finish it when reheated.

Haven't decided what to have it on yet, maybe just some spaghetti, maybe cavetelli, medium shells....hhhmmm.

Oakley, I was racking my brain over the scallops, lobster, and cod in NY zone 5a, then I remembered....you are somewhere above the arctic circle.

Just got home after another 11 hour day 7:00 to 6:30 but I have been up since before 4:00 AM.
Too tired to cook and I didn't eat lunch.

I have wanted to try fresh caught cod. I bet it tastes a lot better than the frozen store bought stuff.

The easiest thing here could be making yourself a nice smoothie. Do you have a vitamix? It's fast and delicious.

I've been there so many times. Even a peanut butter sandwich is too much work.

No I dont I drank two beers on the porch with Smokey as a thunder storm rolled though but missed us.
I Love the sound of distant thunder.
I came in washed dishes and am having Mac and Cheese ( Not From A Box) with a pan fried ground chuck patty.
While cooking I am having yet one more beer and watching an Indiana Jones movie.
