We had our first taste of winter today…even though winter is not officially here. The snow is beautiful in its own way though and I can take it as long as I can stay warm. And warm I did stay…indoors…knitting, baking and spending time with my family.
I have really been feeling anxious these past few days and the thought of not wanting to have the surgery keeps flooding my mind. I know…for me…it is probably the best decision. I know even if I lose 50 pounds prior to surgery I still need to go through with it to help me get to a healthy weight, it is just this waiting game here, plying mind trips with me.
For those who have had surgery, did you go through this too?
It’s really driving me a bit nutzo.
ok, so onto other matters. I grew up in the south and fried catfish was one of my faves. Now I have not had it in YEARS! A few weeks ago though at my local Walgreens, yes Walgreens, I found bags of them for $1.49!! 4 fillets to a bag, plain, for just $1.49!! Tonight I made them…only not fried but rather oven “fried” so they were a bit healthier, but the taste was not hindered in anyway at all.
Wanna know how I made them? Of course you do!
I poured about 1/2c skim milk into a shallow bowl.
Then in another bowl I poured in:
- 1 c. Corn Meal
- 1T Paprika
- 2t. Onion Powder
- 2t. Garlic Powder
- 1/2t Chipotle Powder
- 1/2t. Sea Salt .
I preheated my oven to 425 and lined a Baking Sheet with aluminum foil that I sprayed with cooking spray.
Each fillet was dipped in the milk, dredged in the cornmeal and placed on the baking sheet then sprayed with cooking spray.
They are cooked in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.
