My husband & I had a weekend away from the farm last weekend. We went to a remote cabin between Granite and Ukiah, Oregon, in the Blue Mountains. It is an annual trip for my husband, but I’ve never done it before. What a beautiful area! We spent time fishing, driving around the various back roads, visiting local friends and spending time with family.

I made a plein air painting of the meadow on our first day, but I gave it as a gift to our hostess for dinner one night and forgot to get a photo of it.

My son, his best friend and my nephew hiked in to Crawfish Lake to spend a couple of nights and fish. We had great luck fishing, including the whoppers pictured, and quite a few small ones… both brook trout and rainbow.

When we returned, I hosted a college roommate and her husband for a fabulous trout dinner. I’m including a link to the recipe I used, mostly because I don’t want to lose track of it. It was THAT good! The sauce was excellent and I think the recipe would be good for any kind of fish. I altered it to make it gluten free, using GF flour and also removed the skin from the trout and coated both sides of the fillets with pecans. YUM!

Now I’m back to the studio routine. Enjoying my painting time and getting things framed for the shows I have coming up. I hope to see you at one of my events! Still room in my October workshop… your space is waiting!
