would normally be from the monsoon months.

Although Kenny is not quite home yet, his salmon season is over.  The
final numbers have not been officially tallied yet, but he estimates his
boat harvested about 1.7 million pounds of salmon this year, primarily
pinks (1.1 million + pounds).  That beats last seasons harvest (Kenny's
best ever) of 1.3 million pounds.  This is the 4th straight season that
the value of the fishery has increased, keeping many Alaska fishing
families in business!

Coming Up...
October 7:  Balloon Fiesta Tailgating:  Kenny the Fishhugger will discuss
tailgating strategies using the grill.  Gwyneth Doland will sign copies of
her "Cilantro Secrets".  Music by guitarist Rob Roman.

Our many thanks to all of you for your support!  Come on out and enjoy all
of the samples at Los Ranchos this weekend!

Eat Well,
