Lemon Pepper Breaded Catfish

For this recipe, you will need:
Chopped Catfish
3-4 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup corn meal
2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
2-4 tablespoons olive oil

Lightly beat 4 eggs in small bowl, set aside. Mix flour, corn meal and seasonings in separate bowl. Heat approx. 2 tablespoons olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Dip pieces of fish in egg, covering completely, then drop into flour mixture and generously coat and drop immediately into heated oil. Rotate once browned until firm and cooked through.
TIP: While dipping, designate one hand for egg and the other hand for dry ingredients, then both hands will not be covered in gooey egg.

I added chopped broccoli to the breaded fish while it was still in the skillet and heated with the lid on, stirring occasionally until the broccoli was brighter green. Then, I removed the fish and broccoli and put in in a serving dish with the lid on to keep it warm. I used the leftover egg and flour mixture to bread some squash and fried it in the same skillet. The squash tasted great too.

Pollo Asado

My husband has a new favorite meal, pollo asado. Luckily for me, I have a favorite store, Sprouts, that sells marinated chicken "pollo asado" style and it is very decently priced. I get enough for the 2 of us (about 1.5 lbs) for about $5 and it is worth it.

Sometimes I like making everything from scratch, and sometimes I don't. This is a great meal for one of those "don't" days.

Wassail - Warm Drink

Wassail is a hot, nutritious drink with an aroma and flavor that fills the house and soul. This is my very favorite Christmas-time drink.

For a group of 15-20 people, slowly heat on stove top or crock pot: 64 ounces apple juice 64 ounces orange juice (fresh squeezed is amazing) 3-4 cinnamon sticks (to taste) 1/2 tsp ground cloves
Heat over the stove until perfectly steamy. Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat on the stove top or in the microwave.
This drink makes a great pair with Snickerdoodle cookies.

Honey Ginger Chex Mix

This is my new favorite chex mix recipe. It turned out delicious...just the perfect amount of sweet and still a bit healthy.

The recipe came from the back of the Honey Nut Chex cereal box and I made a few alterations to work with the ingredients that I had and wanted to include.

In a large microwaveable bowl mix together:
6 cups Honey Nut Chex
1 cup dried banana chips
1-2 cups almonds (I used sliced almonds)

In a small microwaveable bowl, combine and heat uncovered for 1-2 minutes or until boiling:
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine (I used Smart Balance Light)
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Brown sugar
1 tsp Ginger

Pour Honey mixture over cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered for 4 minutes, stirring and scraping the sides every minute.

1 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup cranberries or raisins

Microwave for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring every minute.
Spread out onto wax paper and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
After mine cooled, I added dark chocolate c…
