Fish Don't Fry in the Kitchen

Yesterday was Chad's family's 2nd annual fish fry. Chad's dad Allen is the host and the fryer of the fish. We had a feast of fried fish (bass and crappie), fried potatoes, fried cauliflower, onion rings, macaroni, pasta salad, corn on the cob, pasta salad, potato salad, buffalo chicken dip, taco dip, a parfait, and cupcakes (made by yours truly). I'm still stuffed! Allen started frying around 1:00 and kept on going all day. Fried the last batch of fish around 9!! We got stalled by a quick thunderstorm, but it only lasted about 15 mins. Before the storm the temp was between 95 and 100. The storm helped cool things down which was a blessing. We're shooting for another fish fry late September or early October and I am already excited for round two. Here are my pictures from the day....

And my cupcakes!!! I love how they turned out!

The fish fry was a wonderful way to celebrate Father's Day! Happy Father's Day to my soon to be stepdad, Greg! My mom and Greg were at the lake getting ready for their wedding next Saturday. Greg is going to officially be my dad, even though I have considered him a dad for the past thirteen years. We are all so excited for the wedding!!!
