That fish has such an unfortunate name.

A beloved creature. A rename would cause uproar. A sustainable catch whose populations are closely monitored across U.S. -".Crappie fishing also is a great way to get children interested in fishing, and provide them with fun and entertainment that helps keep them out of trouble. When the crappie fishing is good, young children can catch lots of fish in a short period of time, and become interested in fishing and the outdoors, according to Hinchcliff." Lake News, CA

Carp is often misspelled as crap on translated menus here. There are those who think that it is a fair assesssment. I only half agree.

Correct pronunciation renders it less offensive.  

 

According to all my pronunciation guides, 'crappie' and 'crappy' are pronounced the same. But I've never encountered the species. It is North American.

I've eaten crappy fish, though. Unfortunately.

At least in the American south, it’s pronounced as if the a were an o.

I've always heard it pronounced CRAW-pee.

One of my favorite fish. And a lot of fun to catch if you get into a school of them.

Shelby's look delicious.

In south Louisiana, the Cajun French name for crappie is sac-a-lait, and is the accepted name by all. Even non-Cajuns.

I used to live by the largest lake in Kansas and they would (maybe still do) have a fishing contest once a year with money awarded to anyone who caught and turned in alive various crappie who had been tagged.  The biggest money award fish was caught by someone who didn't know there was a prize and filleted the fish.

I made Mongolian Beef for dinner.  Charlie said it was good.

Squid and snow peas or sugar snap peas is a popular pairing in China. I've never seen them with stir fried noodles, though - until now. And why not.

“Anybody hungry ?”

”Nooo ... we had so much for lunch. Maybe later. Or we skip today.”

 

About 2 minutes later ...

”Maybe we can have something small and light ...”

 

About 5 minutes later ...

”Papa, can we have Spaghetti Carbonara ?”

 

🙄

 

Luckily, I am a teamplayer (with Bucatini at hand) ...

Last night we had breakfast for dinner. My omelets aren’t pretty, but they taste good. Spinach and goat cheese omelet, bacon, toast, and mushrooms.

@Shelby – the dressing on that salad is just Wishbone French.  Every so often I go back to the 1970s and crave it.

 

RE: Crappie.  My dad used to catch these on the Eastern shore where they are pronounced CRAP-ee.  And are giggle inducing to little kids. 

 

@patti's beautiful shrimp and grits inspired me.  So, on Tuesday:

IMG_5457.jpg.fb917c466dd9434b269cdae4c681dd3a.jpg

I used the James Briscione recipe that I’ve used for the past 10 years. 

 

With more Billy Bread and some pimento cheese that Jessica got from a restaurant the other night:

And salad:

On Wednesday, Mr. Kim had his 2nd vaccine shot today and didn’t feel like eating much.  He got a grilled cheese and I decided on a fried egg sandwich with lots of butter.  Gorgeous egg from my SIL’s chickens:

With a sectioned Sumo mandarin:

To me, that is a perfect fried egg sandwich:
