Self-Sufficient Living and Foodies are Sexy!

I think I’m getting “hooked”!  As I learn to catch my own fish, I’ve come to realize that it not only saves on the grocery budget http://www.food-skills-for-self-sufficiency.com/  but it also tastes so damn good!  Self-sufficient living is sexy!  Self-sufficient foodies are sexier!

I’m not one to hold back on flavors while cooking and sometimes I splurge on calories (okay – more than sometimes).  Now … I will forever be hooked on catching and cooking my own fish!  I’m pretty sure that’s sexy!

I’ve had the privilege of spending a lot of time relaxing at the Texas Coast and learning how to fish.  While I’m quite sure I’ve got much more to learn about fishing (no laughing at my pic), I can’t help but think how self-sufficient one could become? http://tipsforsurvivalists.com/15-steps-to-becoming-self-sufficient.  Could this be my New Year’s Resolution?

I love that the fish I serve my family is truly organic, and the fact that I actually caught it (or someone on the boat I had to bribe), makes me feel so good!  I’ve never been around hunting or fishing (being a city girl and all), but I do have fond memories of gardening with my Grandparents and self-sufficient ways of cooking.  Kudos to those self-sufficient chefs out there!  We would also take trips to local farms to select our eggs.  At the time, I didn’t realize my Grandparents were not only frugal, but cared about eating natural foods.  And what fun it was as a young child to experience this!  Talk about fresh and organic!

Somehow, I’ve never let go of the natural ways of cooking and it shows in all of our products.  We are so proud of that and we continue to strive to source natural local ingredients.

Check out my “catch of the day” recipe of Grilled Speckled Trout Tacos with either Roasted Almond Chimichurri w/mint or Creamy Cilantro.  This recipe is so easy and you can choose any of our salsas or dips really … they all pair well and add some spice to this recipe!
