Being in the mid west and as far from the ocean as possible, I continue to be surprised that the main dish is cod.....but it is. I do wish I had ordered blue gill though. That is a local fish and one all of us cousins have eaten or caught (or both!).
I did get the codfish but, to be honest, it wasn't that great, and far too salty for me. (In the two weeks we stayed in the US, we were all appalled at how incredibly salty the restaurant food was!) But the total immersion in Midwestern culture and Sprague family gatherings made it a memorable night.
A group of cousins went out after this. They had an extremely upsetting experience and some ended up, unexpectedly, at our hotel about 4am. The silver lining as a result of this is that everyone stayed at the hotel the rest of the weekend. So we had much more quality time with our children and cousins instead of them being scattered all over Belleville!
