A Very Busy Day.

April 4th - On This Very Busy Day:

One would think Saturday to be a very quiet day with an opportunity to sleep in.
But it won't be.

It'll be a go go go day from shopping to soccer to cooking.

I learned how to make caviar from the roe , of any fish eggs.
So simple I thought ,why didn't I think of it before?
Now I need a fresh fish with roe.
Guess I need to go fishing lol

To do this job, you need to get the eggs out of the egg sacs and clean the membranes they are attached to.
A steel screen with 1/4 inch mesh can be used in a bowl of cold water and effort made not to break the eggs.
When eggs are clean, drain them well.

Measure the eggs, and for each cup of eggs, make a brine of two cups of cold water and 1/2 cup kosher salt in a glass bowl .
Add eggs and swirl gently once in a while, for 15-20 minutes.
Drain the water in a sieve and refrigerate for about two hours or overnight.
And voila, you have your own, home made caviar. to eat on crackers, potatoes, scrambled eggs, crepes, deviled eggs, and rye bread with butter.

Whew! busy day cause the list goes on.

I enjoyed the pictures of India Tunesia and Armenia with the blogtrotter.
Left some comments.
There are so many pics .
I usually like to research each building before making a comment but this would be an impossibility at this late stage of the game.
But if one had the time, one could very well see history unfold itself from them.
The structures date to way back when and one barbers tomb, might even have some of Muhammads hairs.
Now I'd like to find the tomb of Muhammed if it exists.
It should if he made a tomb for his barber. Very impressive.

Well, thats all for now. Wish every one a very pleasant day.

. A blonde was weed-eating her yard and accidentally cut off the tail of her cat which was hiding in the grass.
She rushed her cat, along with the tail, over to WAL-MART!Why WAL-MART??HELLOOOOOOOOO!WAL-MART is the largest re-tailer in the world!!!

YOu just have given me an idea for my "Jazz on the 5th": Glenn Miller's Moonlight Serenade. Or something else from him. If I can find something. But with YouTube this should not be difficult.

Dear GMG
Thanks for your visit and comments.
I did spend an enormous amount of time on your blog because you really take some excellent artistic and historic pictures.
Once on your blog, time flies.
and I end up burning the

Well this caviar recipe is for all fish including sturgeon.
People in Florida are making their own, selling for less and making a mint.
The caviar I got was from Salmon because I like it the most. I looked up the sturgeon but the fish is almost out of stock and you have to be very careful eating it cause it is full of toxins.
The Caspian Sea is ridiculously polluted and hardly any fish are caught there and the ones who still do sturgeon, well they are not helping the fish stock. I am not sure but I don't think we're allowed to fish sturgeon here in BC. They need to be released.But if you are not fussy lots of good eggs can be turned into caviar and they are almost as good.
Blondes can be fun lol
