OCTOBER FISHING REMAINS FABULOUS ON BIG LAKE

I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days on the water with an old high school buddy this past week. We had a great time smacking Lake Calcasieu trout and had a chance to dredge up a few old stories between strikes. Most all fish came from oyster reefs on the north end of the lake on live shrimp and soft plastic under a cork. Most schools of working seagulls on the south end were holding smaller specks for the taking. Here are a few pictures and you can see them all by CLICKING HERE

THIS WEEKS YUMMY RECIPE

Sweet Potatoes are a staple of Cajun foods and there is no better dish than this one. Easy to make and it’s very good. Enjoy

Cajun Style Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 cups sweet potatoes, mashed
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cans pet cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

In large mixing bowl add mashed potatoes. Whip until all strings are gone. For best results boil potatoes instead of baking. Add remaining ingredients, mixing until very fluffy and creamy. Place finished potatoes in deep baking dish. Set aside.

Topping:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Mix all above ingredients together until flour doesn't look white. Crumble over top of potato mixture and bake until golden brown. Heat oven to 325F.


My thought -  It’s like cousin Bob (the orchid guru) says - - “The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits”.

Have a GREAT week and remember “Ya shoulda been here Yesterday”
