Dinner with my Padrinos

Sunday night we had dinner with my Padrinos (aka Godparents) — a weekly tradition in Daly City. My padrino made a fantastic fresh fish stew using fresh rock fish that he and his friend of 40 years Carl caught the day prior.

My Godfather adds the freshly caught fish into the stew base. (08/21/05)

It was so good. I’m almost ready to make a rule that I won’t eat any thing that wasn’t alive just 24 hours prior! :)

Liele was fascinated by my Godfather's Big Mouth Billy Bass animated singing fish. (08/21/05)

We had a good time and it was a great chance to catch up. My padrino always has really good wine too.

My padrinos' friends of 40 years Carl and Mercy joined the family for Sunday dinner. (08/21/05)

Later on my madrina, a fellow State Quarter collector, gave me some of the state quarters that I hadn’t seen in circulation yet. She’s got a hook-up at her local bank, who calls her every time a new batch arrives.

Overall it was a great night with great food and drink.

The Singing Fish should be thrown back out to sea...
