Ever since the oil spill in the Gulf coast, I've been kinda scared to death to eat seafood. I mean, how do they clean up all that oil? Seriously? Is the seafood safe to eat, one has to wonder. I've been avoiding seafood as much as I could, but lately, I've been really craving it. I saw at the supermarket today they had fresh catfish for sale. Since we've been eating a lot of meat and pork lately, I thought, okay, I'll get the catfish and hope for the best. I should have asked the guy behind the counter if this was farm raised fish, or where the catfish came from. I totally forgot to ask. To prepare the catfish, I dipped it in egg, then salt, pepper and flour. I cooked it in vegetable oil in a frying pan. Very tasty. One thing I forgot was to pick up relish to make tartar sauce. Dang it! We also bought some fresh green beans, that were $1.99 a pound. I sauteed the pole beans with some butter and garlic. I was highly disappointed in the taste. They just weren't as sweet as the ones we grow in the garden. The ones we grow taste so much better! I can't wait for spring so we can get the Pole Bean plants in the ground.
