Old High Church and Kirkyard, Inverness, Scottish Highlands

Hugh Miller Cottage, Cromarty, Scotland

 I was so very blessed to get to spend a whole day touring the childhood and adulthood home (for a while) of Hugh Miller, geologist, reformer, stone mason and Scots. Truly an amazing experience!! I used my National Trust for Scotland pass to tour it, which is awesome.

Fish Fry at home, super easy


Making a meal at home is super easy, especially when a friend shared a recipe (or two) to help keep things interesting and tasty (read, I was tired of the same ol’ same old dishes that I was making.) I recalled that while I live in the South-East parts of the United States, Fried fish was a common dish (and oh, how yummy it is, too!!))

So here it goes:


1 large can of green beans (warmed up on the stove)

2 Cups of dry, white rice–4 cups of water, cook with pinch of salt

1 small can of sliced mushrooms with a creamy pepper sauce

8 pieces of Alaska Whitening (or similar fish)

Batter..1/2 cup white flour, 1/2 cup corn flour, salt pepper, paprika in one bowl,

Second bowl has an 2 eggs beat with milk

Dip each piece of fish into the egg/milk solution, then dip into the flour mix, coating on both sides. Put the battered fish into a skillet (on medium with the bottom covered in Sunflower oil or your favorite oil) Fry Fish on both sides until crispy and done all the way through.

Place 2 friend fish, a serving of green beans, and serving of rice (with the mushroom grave on top) and serve.

Serves 4 hearty meals (or 8 lighter meals)
