A True Wisconsin Classic

Here in Wisconsin we have many lakes and
streams where you can enjoy an afternoon of fishing~
If you don't have time to go fishing,
you can enjoy a Wisconsin Friday Night Tradition....
The Friday Night Fish Fry.

To find out more about this Wisconsin Classic,
The Friday Night Fish Fry...
Read more about it here~Come Fry With Me

This Friday night,
if you don't want to head on out
to your favorite Supper Club,
why not stay in and
make this classic dish at home!

Serve with creamy slaw, tartar sauce,
french fries, buttered rye bread and lemon wedges..
For the true Wisconsin experience.

PS: Don't forget the ice cold Wisconsin Beer!

Our neighbor is an avid hunter and fisherman.
Last week, he stopped by and
gave us some wonderful perch fillets...

I have to admit, they were the best!
Nothing beats the flavor of fresh fish...
caught right in the lake I live on.
