So hush puppies are basically fried cornmeal batter, with seasonings?

They're a little bit of yummyness that is good with or without ketchup.

They sell a box of hush puppy mix at the store, but I'm sure it's far more expensive than making your own.

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


Centuries ago I dated an Italian guy whose mother made the very best breaded parmesan cutlet (veal, chicken, eggplant, whatever) and if she had left over breading she would deep fry that too. very tasty

She claimed it was left over thinking from the war...not to waste anything

ok I will tell you

Veal parmesan serve on a bun or on noodles

Veal scalopinni Unless you're a bleeding heart then get chicken..I don't care...unless you're a vegetarian then get egg plant sliced thin

dust with flour
dip in beaten egg until coated
dip into bread crumb mixture until coated.. ( bread crumbs and grated parmesan mixed together)

fry in olive oil, flip and do other side. The whole thing is minutes only

After you are done all your dipping

Pour left over egg into leftover breadcrumbs and mix well
Shape into patties
fry

The hush puppies I may have to try this weekend. They're my favorite thing to order at Long John Silver's. Like anything else, they're probably much better home made.

And creamy cole slaw is the best. I had a recipe I used when I was a kid. I can still picture the cook book it was in, but can't find it at my mom's anymore. I think it might have been the same book that had the good recipe for fried rice. I'd like to have those two recipes again.

I think the cabbage in the cole slaw is really good for a person. My friends' husband was at a cancer treatment center and one of the things they had him do was soak in a tub with cabbage leaves under his arm pits and groin area. It pulls the poisons out of the body. It's probably even more effective when it's eaten.

Thanks for all the good information Jim!
Barb, if your fish is to tough try cooking one piece, give it a try and if too tough cook the next til it is about the way you want it. Fish is usually done in about 3 minutes or less. Now fried rice is one of my and Judy's favorite foods, I hope you can find that recipe.

The way we like cabbage is don't cut it up, break the leaves off and cook them whole. We use chicken broth to cook the cabbage in add salt and a bunch of black pepper, we like a little bacon grease also. I could make a meal of just cabbage and good thin cornbread, I don't like it thick.

I love good cole slaw also, I hope you can find them.

Jan, that does sound good, I started to get some eggplant last week but it was just to rubbery so I left it alone, that is some good eating if fixed right, I can't stand it if it is sliced too thick, yucky. I also like it fried like green tomatoes.

Thanks just the same, but as much as I love kids, going somewhere where there are dozens or hundreds of them all talking, screaming and yelling at once may put me in the loony bin.

Although, sitting in a quiet room weaving baskets and talking to myself's all day long may not be such a bad thing! *sings Dr. Demento's song, "They're coming to take me away haha, they're coming to take me away.... to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming to take me away hahaaaa!"*

Uh-oh! I'm getting a little loopy. Time to hit the hay. ~

Those are strange looking cats. I had to do a search to see what they were.

I think I would rather hit my finger with a hammer a few times as take a bunch of youngens somewhere, you must have nerves of steel. Don't get me wrong I love the little ones but I just can't take all that ruckus anymore, just drives me up the gump stump.

Yes Jim,

A rastacat is a cat with tangly fur and one that indulges in too much catnip. Then he falls asleep.

I share the same sentiment as you Jim about screaming excited kids. I usually leave that sort of thing for their disneyland type of father. By that I mean he just wants to be the good funtime guy, but when it gets hard he doesn't know how to handle it.

I figure though, they are only little for such a short time. These years will be gone before you know it. I will have plenty of time for my own thing. The problem is though, I'm already older than most parents of same age kids.

Every once in a while I think a day or two just for me would be very theraputic

Jim:
I just googled rastacat too. I thought I made it up . I call him that because he has dreadlocks all over his back that I have to cut out every so often. Hes too fat to groom himself properly. His needs are way down on my priority list at the moment

You are right, I love little kids and love to see then have fun it is a shame they have the kind of world we do now for them to grow up in. All of mine are grown and left the nest, my oldest will be 50 soon, man that really does make me feel old, hey wait a minute, I am old.I wish I could bring back some of the times we had when they were little.

Sorry that your ex is that way, I know it has to be frustrating. After all you have been through, you need to kick back and watch the world go by on the back of your eyelids. Hope you have a great weekend.
