Huntress, Just kidding on the invite for the fish fry. What kind of fish are you frying? 1st one is for you.

Au Gratin potatoes.

4-5 large Idaho russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/8" thick

1/4 cup butter

1/2 sweet yellow onion, diced

1 tbsp flour

sea salt and pepper to taste

2 cups non fat milk

2 cups of extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (divided)

1/4 cup dry Italian bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 375. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Scrub potatoes and peel. Cut potatoes into 1/8" slices to measure about 4 cups. If you have a mandolin slicer use that.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion in butter for about 2 minutes, stiring occasionally, until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Cook, stiring constantly until bubbly and remove from heat.

Slowly stir in milk and 1 1/2 cups of cheese. Heat to boiling, stiring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute until the cheese is melted.

Spread potatoes in a casserole dish or a 9X13. Pour cheese sauce over potatoes. Bake uncovered for 1 hour. Mix remaining cheese and the bread crumbs, sprinkle over potatoes and bake uncovered another 15-20 minutes until top is golden brown and bubbly.

Enjoy!

Enjoy!!

Hush-Puppies go GREAT with a fish fry! Easy to make and brings a starch and a veggie to the meal. Unless you just want the potato as a 'filler', then I'd do french fries. On a side note, 'Blooming Onions' are a nice pickin' food too.

If you have a turkey fryer you can make your own fries/chips, easy to do for a large crowd, especially if everyone pitches in.

Last summer I switched from potatoes to rice when cooking fish. Try Zatarans' Red Beans and Rice. It's a boxed mix that's ready in about 20 minutes on the stovetop. It goes excellant with fish! They also have a good Dirty Rice too.

    •   NSA To Provide "Smoking Gun" Proof Obama Spied On Trump Mar 24, 2017 5:43 AM   Yesterday, Republican Devin Nunez Nunes held an explosive press conference outside the White House in which he told reporters that communications from the Trump team were picked up and disseminated within the government during the 2016 campaign.  Not surprisingly, the comments ruffled some liberal feathers and the mainstream media launched an immediate smear campaign calling for Nunes to resign his post immediately.  Now, according to Fox News sources, congressional investigators expect that a potential “smoking gun” from the NSA establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee as early as tomorrow.   The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.   The FBI hasn’t been responsive to the House Intelligence Committee’s request for documents, but the National Security Agency is expected to produce documents to the committee by Friday. The NSA document production is expected to produce more intelligence than Nunes has so far seen or described – including what one source described as a potential “smoking gun” establishing the spying.   Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretappedhim in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.   The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.   Because Nunes’s intelligence came from multiple sources during a span of several weeks, and he has not shared the actual materials with his committee colleagues, he will be the only member of the panel in a position to know whether the NSA has turned over some or all of the intelligence he is citing. If true, of course, this could put a 'slight' taint Obama's claim of a "scandal free" eight years in the White House.   **snip**   .........If Nunes is correct, and Trump was being wiretapped for reasons having nothing to do with Russia, that entire narrative falls apart, and the press will now have to spend the next few weeks building up an entirely new narrative to "justify" why Trump was being wiretapped on Obama's watch.   Link     Delicious...  
    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
