Around here we have what we call Fish Camps, don’t ask me why they are called that, this place is unique with that designation I think. Down here a fish restaurant in the country is called a ‘Fish Camp.’ Other places, I have learned, a fish camp is actually that a place to camp and fish, but these are places that specialize in fish.
Some of the best fish is cooked here in Gaston County. A few years ago ‘Cat Fish Cove Fish Camp’ decided Sunday would be a good day to serve lunch. Most of the Camps were closed on Sunday. The Cove opened a Buffet, delicious food, a specialty is ‘country style steak. Tender as can be and delicious in a great gravy.
I figured these folks must pressure the steak. So last night for supper, I tried my hand at it. Sherry suggested I roll the cubed steak in flour first. I did that, with olive Oil in the pan heated I browned the steaks. then using the steamer tray or rack that came with the pressure cooker I put enough water to come to the top of it an put about four pounds of steak in it. I pressured it for about 22 minutes. While that was doing Sherry told me how to make gravy (My first from scratch), I dumped the streak in the gravy and sure enough, it was great. Sherry has decided to hire me.
We had company and they also bragged (of course grand sons had better brag, right?) Sherry baked biscuits, made mashed potatoes and had green beans, ‘twas all very good. I wish I could remember to take pictures.
Oh yeah, the flies have been terrible this year. every time we opened the door seemed like a fly or two would make the dash.
When we first hiked out of Ellijay, Georgia, I noticed many establishments and houses had zip lock bags of water by the door. McDonalds even had them. I asked about them and was told that will keep the flies out. Of course (in side) I laughed. Well, yesterday I got desperate and tried it. It looks sorta strange or tacky but evidently it works, only one fly has been in the house in two days. I will keep you posted.
Oh BTW, have you ever heard of the water n a bag trick?

Plymouth Fury looks like it might be a 57 or 59.
