    Default Fish Friday

    I waffled back & forth between spaghetti or fish. I settled on fish. Pan
    fried white fish fillets, coated with Zatarain's Fish Fri mix. I'll be
    baking skinny "fast food style" frozen fries - Publix store brand. The
    fries turn out nice and crispy on the outside, tender inside, just as if
    they'd been fried. Alongside those I'll bake a few hush puppies (Savannah
    is the brand). I still find it odd, being in an area known for seafood,
    that hush puppies rarely show up on a menu. I guess hush puppies are more
    of a mid-south thing. I'm so glad I found hush puppies in the freezer
    section! I rarely deep fry anything so making them from scratch is not on
    my itinerary

    What's on your dinner menu?

    I usually have fish on Fridays. It is not because we are Catholic, thank
    goodness, but because I do the shopping on Friday and pick up fresh
    fish. Except... in this case it frozen shrimp that was on sale at too
    good a price to turn down. I also picked up some asparagus at a good
    price. I an include pasta. I am going to sautee to garlic in olive oil,
    along with some dried hot chili, chopped red pepper and asparagus. I
    will toss that in spaghetti and sprinkle a little freshly grated Parmesan.

    I don't feel much like cooking today so I decided to use a can of
    Costco chunk chicken breast, a Pillsbury pie crust and my own veggies
    and milk to make a chicken pot pie. I added some thyme to the sauce.
    I will brush the crust with milk and sprinkle with either coarse
    pepper or some season salt.

    What kind of "white fish".

    Other than smoked whitefish, I have seen anything labeled "White
    Fish". Nor have I heard of anybody fishing for "white fish".
    Must be a regional thing.

    Busy night here. Two dance classes followed by shopping at Costco, then
    quick dinner at Taco Time and then more shopping at Target. Daughter
    usually has a chicken taco and beans. I always have beans but I alternate
    between the Casita Burrito minus the dairy and dressing or ground beef taco.

    I had a can of CostCo canned chicken for breakfast. Just open, drain
    half the liquid, and eat. I'm getting really attached to this stuff.

    It turns out most of the canned chicken in the U.S. comes from Crider,
    but usually not under their own label.

    http://www.cridercorp.com/

    The stuff is miles ahead of canned tuna. Now if they could just
    invent a canned DARK MEAT chicken...

    Whitefish (no space) is a well-defined family of fish including
    the lake whitefish, and the ciscos. They only inhabit lakes
    in northern Europe and northern north America.

    This is according to Sunset Fish and Shellfish. I have not looked
    in Fishbase, which would probably confuse the matter.

    The KCUR Fish Fry radio show with my buddy Chuck Haddix: Best Blues and R&B
    radio show in the country. Stream it live tonight or tomorrow starting at
    8PM central, or listen to past programs here:
    http://kcur.org/fish-fry-archives. If you're a fan of blues, R&B, and/or
    zydeco, you want to do this. Trust me. (If you're in radio range of KC, it's
    FM 89.3.)

    I've seen the white fish term before. It can be a number of different fish.
    In the US it might well be hake. Not the same as whiting.

    I checked with my ex on this one. There are two types (my words) of
    whitefish. Mountain and Lake or Great Lakes. Basically, they have
    white flesh. They are way yummy.
    I got the whole lecture from him about where they were introduced to
    waters and where natural, etc. I have had whitefish from Idaho
    mountain streams, Glacier Lake and Lake Michigan. Yum, yum.

    That sounds like a good pantry dinner. I didn't make dinner tonight. I
    had a rough day. I called the surgeon on Monday to mail me a refill of
    pain meds and it didn't get here until today. I was getting concerned
    because I took the last of them yesterday and I didn't want a forced
    withdrawal since I wouldn't be able to get a hold of the surgeon until
    monday and likely by then I'd be a sick mess.

    So when the script came today I drove for the first time in several
    weeks to get it filled. I had to go to two pharmacy because my first
    choice was out of them. Second choice had them but they were busy. I
    spent a lot of time on my feet today, which was a semi-good thing. I
    think I'm healing! So I'm going to use this refill to wean off of them.
    Wish me luck!

    Oh, and dinner was just some pistachios, enough to fill me up. Trying
    to remember what else I ate today. Nothing really healthful since I
    didn't really cook. I think I'll have a bowlful of my homemade ice
    cream and call it a day.
