Comment: A good buddy came over last weekend and helped drop a problem maple in our backyard. Today I finally got around to cleaning up the brush which entailed chopping, loading, and delivering four FULL truckloads to the yard waste drop off facility this morning. I earned this…

“This” being a 3-piece cod take-out from @brennansmarket. Brennan’s cod is thick-cut and flaky with a crispy, kind of frizzle-y, beer batter. It’s quite flavorful and more than plentiful. I pounded it down, but was stuffed after.

The homemade tartar is 100% essential with this fish and balances the super crispy coating with a pleasant tang. The potatoes, while not as good as fries would be IMO, have a pungent garlic punch and are cooked just right.

The slaw is Brennan’s classic, which while not on the same plane as their world-famous potato salad, is still pretty darn good. No bread comes with, but since it’s takeout you can grab a slice off your counter at home if you really want some I suppose.

After defeating the tree and this 3-piece I could have used a nap, but of course that’s not in the cards tonight. We have a soccer game to get to, then trick-or-treating at the kid’s school, and god willing FFF #2. It’s going to be a long day, but having a tasty Fish Fry like this helps make it all the more manageable.
