What I Was Going to Make for Dinner: June 20, 2011

Crispy fried trout and zucchini fritters.

Several weeks ago, my dad and Josh went on a fishing trip.  They had Tremendous!  Success!  In that they actually caught some really gorgeous trout.  Thus Josh, at ten, has already experienced more fishing success than either I or his father ever have or are ever likely to.

Tonight, I wanted to cook those gorgeous fish.  But I don't really know how to fillet, and I am afraid--ashamed to admit--that I fucked one of them up beyond use.  I am heartsick about it.  I have been crying about it for a full hour, in fact. 

I can't even talk about it anymore.  Here's a picture of Josh's fine work before I got hold of it.
