Feast of the seven fishes: Florida edition

Following our first feast of the seven fishes in Australia last year, we decided on a decidedly Floridian feast this year: stone crab, grouper, snapper, mahi-mahi, shrimp, oysters (from Texas), salmon (from somewhere).

But since stone crab is the most popular crustacean on the Gulf at the time of year, our fishmonger was sold out: so we paid homage to Amy’s seven.fishes.dec.12formative years in Minnesota, with herring.

 

Maybe we’ll go French or Italian next year.

To show the depths of our cross-cultural experiences, this is what Sorenne has been singing: 

Australian Jingle Bells

Dashing through the bush,
in a rusty Holden Ute,
Kicking up the dust,
esky in the boot,
Kelpie by my side,
singing Christmas songs,
It’s Summer time and I am in
my singlet, shorts and thongs

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
barfblog.Stick It InJingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut !,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.

Engine’s getting hot;
we dodge the kangaroos,
The swaggie climbs aboard,
he is welcome too.
All the family’s there,
sitting by the pool,
Christmas Day the Aussie way,
by the barbecue.

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!

Come the afternoon,
Grandpa has a doze,
The kids and Uncle Bruce,
are swimming in their clothes.
The time comes ’round to go,
we take the family snap,
Pack the car and all shoot through,
before the washing up.

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Christmas in Australia on a scorching summers day, Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute
