russian family photo

russianfamily i found this picture in the trash when i was working at a mailboxes etc in Sacramento. i remember i kept a couple interesting photos from that time. families would come in, mostly immigrant ones, to make color copies of their pictures from their homelands and i would pretend to mess some up and toss them in the trash and pick them out after they'd left. this one was from this old russian grandmother's collection. there's like 15 kids in this picture. it has a spectral, old world quality to it that i like with the rocky beach and rounded, rolling hills in the background on the other side of the lake.

fresh snakehead caviar

eggs_1 eggs_ben eggs_johnr Ben Sargent and I went to a snakehead fishing derby down in the south of Maryland last month. We were severely underprepared, but there were more than 1400 pounds of snakehead caught over the weekend tournament, not a single ounce of which was caught by us. I'm currently working on a writing project about snakeheads, which may or may not lead to a bigger project. Many of the fish were donated to a company called ProFish, and that's John Rorapaugh of Profish in the third picture. Steve Vilnit of the Maryland DNR was fileting some fish for Ben when he found a pregnant fish and treated us to some fresh caviar. I was apprehensive at first, but since Ben has the Hook, Line & Dinner tv show, he must be open to eating anything fish. After he, Steve, and John tried it I knew I had to also. It was surprisingly light and neutral tasting—not fishy at all. Might be good lightly fried with some soy sauce.
