Nate and Davey–A Fish Tale

Grandson Nate won a small goldfish at a church carnival last August. He proudly carried the fish home in its plastic water-filled bag and named him Davey. He didn’t profess to have high hopes for a long life for Davey – said he figured he’d only live a week!

Using his own money, Nate bought Davey a fishbowl, gravel and food. And he was vigilant about changing the water daily and giving Davey the proper amount of delicious food.

Davey was still there at Christmas, ready to celebrate with the family.
A couple of weeks ago – months after he went to live with Nate – Davey passed on to the big fishbowl in the sky. Or wherever fish go. Anyway, as he was flushed away Nate gave him a salute.

I don’t know if there’ll be a replacement, but the empty fishbowl is still around.

And it was mentioned that we could’ve had sushi – I don’t think so. It would have been a very small bite!

We’re having fish for dinner tonight – baked tilapia, very simply done as I sometimes do it - fairly plain with just a dab of butter and cajun seasonings on top. Other times I will cook it in a sauce or breaded and baked.

For quite a while we’ve eaten fish at least a couple of times a week. My husband would probably prefer fried, but most of the time it’s baked. According to recent reports baked or broiled fish is better for our brains and memory than fried. And we need all the help we can get!

What are your favorite fish dinners? Do you have a favorite recipe to share?
