Everything's better fried

We had our men's fish fry this evening. I spent from 3-8 p.m. working like a galley slave. I enjoyed it, but I'm beat.

We had a team of guys cooking fish outside. I helped cook inside. I made macaroni & cheese by the yard, half a ton of hush puppies, and deep-fried some dill pickles. collinsmom made a pumpkin pie.

The fish was absolutely delicious. Way to go, guys! People also raved about the hush puppies and the pickles, which was very gratifying.

That said, while I'm all for getting my ego stroked as a cook, I have to laugh sometimes. My hush puppy recipe is basic Boy Scout Chow™. You take one of those little boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix, add the milk and egg like the package says, plus one medium onion (diced). Voila! Drop 'em by teaspoonsful into hot oil; fry 'em up and amaze your friends and family.
