Two Of My Favorites! Broiled Walleye, And Pound Cake..
I try not to go to Sams' Club more than once a month, as everytime I'm there, I spend about 150.00 bucks! They carry a sharp Pinconning cheese that is the best (made in Michigan!), and I usually find other treats without working at it! They have a decent selection of fish fillets, and they had a pack of three Walleye fillets that had my name on them... To the people wondering what this fish is like, it is a flavorful, fresh water fish popular in northern states and Canada. Mild, firm flesh that flakes easily, it would remind you of lake perch- only bigger! They can get quite large, but best eating size would be a 17 to 21 inch fish. Simply seasoned with salt, pepper, dill, and butter, then broiled skin side down for about 10 minutes- you are in heaven! Lemon, or tartar sauce has been seen accompanying the finished product. Sour cream scalloped potatoes, and steamed broccoli will be there too.
Saturday, my wife attended a play with her sister, so I thought I'd make a couple of small pound cakes. Traditional recipe is 1 pound butter, 1 pound sugar, 1 pound flour, 1 pound of eggs. I added a bit of almond extract and lemon, mixed until consistency right(a long friggin' time!)baked at 300f for 70 minutes- came out great! Topped with a lemon, butter, powdered sugar glaze- it is a simple, rich treat you can eat as is, or add whipped cream or any topping you might think you'd enjoy!
Hope you all are enjoying your week-ends!
P.S.- We don't use paper plates all the time- that's our sons' "to go" plate every Sunday!
