I write stories of people stumbling through life and finding the things that make it all worthwhile: love, faith and hope. For me that also means family. Some of my people have large, crazy, overwhelming families, others are trying to gather some sort of family around them where there was none. For one of the characters I’m currently working with, he has three rescues dogs, he thinks he is just fine without people.
One thing everyone loves even the dogs is a Fish Fry!
With family comes family events. Yes, my stories always have some big family event. Holiday traditions are great to show off the worse and best!
So this Easter my sisters and I got together for a fabulous fish fry! It was beyond delicious with a little Red fish, speckle trout and cat fish. Of course anytime you deep fry something it tends to work well for the taste buds. A few hand rolled hush puppies (in the south there is always a dog hanging out and acting if you haven’t feed them in three days) You have to start with some good corn meal to coat the fish.
Got to make sure the oil is hot but not too hot. You have to taste it before serving to make sure it is right.
Ready to Eat!!
If you have another fryer you can finish the fry fiesta with funnel cake. BUT you have to have clean oil!
Fishy Funnel Cake is not tasty
What is your favorite family tradition? Do y’all have a go to recipe that feeds everyone?
