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!

Huntress, Next are Sinful Potatoes from a old church cook book. I can't count how many times that I have made these. Everyone loves them. This will serve 5-6 people.

Sinful Potatoes

2 lb pkg of Obrien potatoes, thawed

1 cup sour cream

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1/4 cup melted butter

1/4 cup chopped onions

2 cups shredded cheese

Pre heat oven to 350

Mix all the above together and put in a 9X13 pan.

Put together 2 cups of crushed cornflakes and 1/4 cups of melted butter. Spread over the top.

Bake 350 for around 45 minutes until bubbling and top is brown.

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.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
