Welcome to the Crazy Carmen Show! Today my special guests are my nephew – Rusty, and my niece – Lynna. We’re here at their beautiful lake house right on Lake Livingston.
In these parts, Rusty is known as the Expert in catching fish and Lynna is hands-down the Queen of cooking them. And as a real treat, I’ve convinced them to share their top 3 secrets to both. So, Rusty – what are your secrets to catching fish?
Rusty answers: Well, my 1st secret is to use the right fishing lure. This is the one I use all the time (showing a hammer). My 2nd secret is to be sure the water temperature is perfect. It should be in the range of 10 degrees to 30 degrees (brrrr….). And, my 3rd secret is to make sure the wind is not blowing too much. If it blows your hat off, it’s too windy!
Carmen: Awesome tips and I know everyone appreciates you sharing.
Rusty then takes out his phone and a note card (which has Fish Market and BR-549 on it). He calls the number and says: “Hey this is Rusty, give me my usual and I’ll meet you on the side of the house.”
Carmen (in the distance), “Did he just order fresh fish?”
Rusty then meets the delivery person on the side of the house and exchanges dollar bills for the bucket of fresh fish.
Next, Rusty takes the fish to Lynna and asks, “How long it will be before lunch?” Lynna says, “Oh, about an hour.”
Carmen asks Lynna: “So Lynna, what are your secrets to cooking fresh fish?”
Lynna answers: Well, my 1st tip is using the right seasonings. My secret ingredient is Bar-B-Q seasoning. My 2nd tip is using a boning knife properly. Always hold it like this and cut away from your hand. And, my 3rd tip is to always use fresh grease. My favorite is the Hytop brand.
Carmen: Those are great tips to use and we thank you for sharing them.
Next, Lynna takes out her phone and a note card. On the note card is “Fish Market and BR-549.” She dials and says: “Yes, this is Lynna. I have a bucket of fish for you and just meet me at the front door.”
Carmen (in the distance): “Did she just call someone to pick up her fresh fish?”
Next, Lynna meets the driver at the door and hands over the fish. The driver counts out the ones to Lynna and leaves.
Lynna then takes out another notepad that reads, “Cooked Fish and BR-549,” and 7 fish and 1 chicken. She then says, “This is Lynna again and I need an order of 7 fish and 1 chicken and just deliver it to the front door.”
Carmen (in the distance): “Did she just order lunch?”
The delivery driver knocks on the door, hands over the cooked order and Lynna counts out the money.
Next scene: everyone eating.
Lillian says, “Wow! This is good, but mine tastes just like chicken!”
Lynna and Rusty look at each other with a big smile.
