Fish Fry

by on Aug.30, 2011, under Food

Even though my website is mostly center around trains and photography I keep finding some other interesting stuff to post. I have been working on a large batch of train pictures from 04. Soon those will be posted. Although tonight we had fried Tilapia for dinner. It came out so good I had to take a picture. I must say it was better then most fish I have had at restaurants. I cut the fillets into smaller pieces and gave them an egg bath. Then they were breaded with a mixture of flour, corn meal and Hugh’s Rub. This rub can be used in a lot of things and it is a great all around dry rub mixture. You can find it onĀ  Allrecipes.com here.

Cleaning up some woodworking equipment

by on Aug.20, 2011, under DIY, Woodworking

I had to take off part of the day from work because our garage door broke and I had to come home to fix it. I took part of the afternoon to work on cleaning up the jointer I bought off Craigslist. It had a little surface rust. I got my order in from Grizzly this week for a few sanding pads along with some stuff called SlipIt (sliding compound that protects metal) . I started with a 280 grit. I then finished with a 400 grit pad. Last I applied the SlipIt and it came out slick. I did the same for my table saw top. Now I need to get my dust collector that is sitting in pieces put together.

Construction in the neighborhood

by on Aug.11, 2011, under General

This is my first post for my blog. I have everything basically setup the way I want it. I still have a little more tweaking. I walked around the neighborhood tonight and took some pictures of the construction going on. They are putting sewer and water lines in the subdivision. It has been going on since early June. I think most of the water mains are in and next will be the sewer mains. Everything is a dusty mess it seems because the road is tore up. We have a wild plum tree at the back of our property. I was glad they didn’t dig it out this week. A few branches were cut off, but that was ok.
