A month ago yesterday I injured my leg quite badly while getting into a friend's truck after a fish fry. We go to several fish fries over the winter months to help support the community and service clubs. It's a nice way to enjoy a great meal while socializing a bit. My husband wanted to go to a fish fry last night hosted by a local service club. The thing is the healing has been a very long, drawn out process with my leg still looking quite ugly as if I have a second knee. The haematoma measures 4 cm wide and is raised about 2.5 cm with considerable bruising and swelling, painful to walk on. Mobility is still an issue so I really wasn't too anxious to go to a fish fry or anywhere else for that matter. My husband thought getting out of the house would be a good idea so after a bit of discussion I agreed. What the heck! I tend to have a bit of a rubber arm when food is involved :)
The dinner was fried walleye with wild rice, home style fried potato wedges, corn bread and cole slaw. The fish was absolutely delightful, perfectly cooked. The wild rice side consisted of wild rice, red pepper, mushroom, onions and bacon pieces. It was good but both my friend and I thought it was missing a base note. I can't quite put my finger on it but will be experimenting this weekend with wild rice. With the ingredients it should have been quite tasty so this should be a rather fun experiment. I really liked the home style fried potato wedges. These are easy to make at home by cutting a potato into quarters or sixths then deep frying the wedges. The corn muffins were a really nice change from the standard dinner rolls offered at these types of events.
