Fish Fry

It started with an all night of fishing for my hubby and some men from church. They were on Lake Jocasse in NC for 12 hours. It's about an hour and half from us and a gorgeous lake to fish or boat on. Hubby (on the right) loves to fish but had not done trout fishing before. He was so excited that he caught his limit and the biggest of the night.

When he arrived home, sleep deprived and still with the feeling of rocking, from being on a boat that long, (lol) he was ready to clean those babies and pose for pics.
They weighed in from 3 1/2 to 4 lbs.
We asked some friends to come over for a fish fry and fun!

Home made hush puppies frying in oil, compliments of our guest. She brought everything for them, including her cast iron skillet. They were so light and yummy!!

I did an ocean theme tablescape for the occassion.

Cute little plates from T.J. Maxx.

Sea shell salt and pepper shakers.

Little fish serving dishes.

I added sand and sea shells for a centerpiece.

Home made cole slaw.

The wonderful fish.

This was a new dish for us--Nassau grits. They were soooooo good! Not like regular grits at all.

We took an evening off of working outside and had some fun.
What's going on with you this week?
Thanks for visiting!!

Congrats to your hubby on his big catch!!

And yum--your dinner looked wonderful!--I don't think I've had hush puppies since we moved from Nashville- just realized how much I miss them!

Your tablescape is adorable! Thanks for sharing your fun time with friends.
