More Than One Sort Of Perfect

The river is flat this morning, like a mirror.
It rained last night.

For all of you who have never had mullet- sorry for you. If you catch it and eat it right then, it is the sweetest white meat of fish you ever had. I soaked it in buttermilk with hot sauce, then rolled it in panko and flour and salt and pepper and fried it in a pan.
It was heaven.
If you let mullet sit though, the oil in it turns. This is the good kind of oil, and mullet is chock full of it. Fish oil. Mullet was thought of as trash fish for many years and if you don't eat it right away, it is.
But oh. If you catch it and throw it in the pan...
Also, you can smoke it.
And then that's another sort of perfect.

Well. I am still waking up. It is our anniversary day. I think we are going to drive around and maybe up to Vero. Check out the beach. Mr. Moon says he would get a pedicure with me.
Are you kidding me?
Who IS this man?

Don't worry. As we speak he is playing online poker and watching the hunting channel. So...a pedicure?

We shall see.

And no matter what we do, when we come back, the river will be here.

Isn't that amazing?
I think so.


  1. Yep, that's what I thought about mullet. From the water, right to the pan. We seldom kill any fish now but mullet are everywhere. Enjoy the day. Happy Anniversary to you both.

  2. amazing....
    as you both are.
    celebrate love!

  3. Happy Anniversary, beautiful Moon couple!!!

    There is something very tender about a big ole manly man volunteering to get a pedicure ~ hope you're taking him up on it???

  4. Happy Anniversary, you two loves!

    I wish you many, many, more.


  5. Happy Anniversary Day!

    Your man contains multitudes... who knew pedis were among them. I think it's sexy, especially on your special day.

    Enjoy and thanks for sharing the beauty.

  6. If he does, in fact, get the pedicure, I want a picture. For some reason I bet his feet are lovely. So glad you are having such a wonderful time!

  7. That's so great he offered to get a pedi with you. :) Happy Anniversary. Florida sounds nice right now. It's cool, rainy and windy here today.

  8. I've been trying to get my husband to go for a pedicure because his callouses have ripped up at least 3 sets of sheets this year.

  9. OK now I'm wanting some fried mullet! One of my favorite memories as a child are of standing on the beach waiting for my granddaddy to come out of the water with his cast net and then picking up the mullet he caught and throwing them in an old zinc tub.

  10. it is. sorry no capitals rocking baby. have a great anniversary!

  11. Happy anniversary day -- when you first met, right?

  12. Happy anniversary to one of the sweetest couples around!


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
