What an awesome day! On the National Food Front, today is a celebration of Southern Cooking and (yum) Blonde Brownies. It’s also Friday. We all know that in our house, Fridays are Old School from a Catholic perspective. It’s a meatless day.Continue reading “The Perfect Union of Two National Days”
My original plan for this Pastry Flounder was to suggest it as a possible Christmas Eve dinner, perhaps as one of the multitude of dishes served for the Feast of Seven Fishes. But then I saw that today is the beginning of Hanukkah. I am not Jewish, so I don’t know how Kosher this recipe is, but it sure is festive.
Next month we have three different festivals up in the Gold Rush country of California. These events are all on the same day. It’s going to be hard to pick just one.
This recipe was originally designed for the most Southern of all fishes – catfish. However; after spending time way up in the Pacific Northwest where Halibut is king, we’ve made some adjustments. Those of you who know me know that I am not one to make recommendations lightly. That said, if you ever find yourself wandering through the ocean-side town of Florence Oregon, be sure to check out Bridgewater Fish House and Zebra Bar. Great atmosphere. Better yet, best beer-battered Halibut I’ve ever tasted.Continue reading “Spicy Southern Fried Fish is Yummy Good!”
If it’s Friday, it must be fish. At least that’s the way it is in our Catholic house most Fridays. Not all Fridays, but most Fridays. As a kid, I hated Fridays. What, fish sticks again! As a young adult, it meant egg salad or tuna salad sandwiches. Okay, are you depressed yet? It gets better.
Here it is, another Catholic Friday. Fridays are great, the start of the weekend. While I don’t need to stress over work any more, I still look forward to the weekends. Everything slows down, even when we have a hundred things to do. Somehow on the weekends, we manage to remember the little things like holding hands and lingering over a nice meal.
Surprise, it’s me again. I know it’s not the norm for me to share three recipes in one day. However; I realized that my Lenten Offering for Holy Thursday has actually been shared twice. The first time I shared the Tilapia recipe was back in March, as part of diabetic awareness and alert day. As a diabetic, these health issues are important to me personally.
Whenever we are traveling and want to grab a quick “fast-food” bite that isn’t the usual burger, Long Johns is always a popular choice. Hubby loves their golden fried fish, plump fried shrimp and a basket of French Fries. With enough Malt Vinegar, even Kiddo doesn’t mind a piece of deep-fried fish.
