A Southern Fish Fry

When the heat and humidity are equal, all you can do is have a fish fry. Six of us couples did, and it was scrumptous.

Start at the bottom of the picture: my green and purple cabbage slaw; five pounds of french fries; two pans of spicy baked beans; and a large pan of deep fried fresh crappie and catfish. Beyond the bottles of tartar and cocktail sauce is a pan of hushpuppies with added Ro-tel and chopped green pepper. What isn't pictured is a huge glass bowl of homemade banana pudding and a pound cake.

While we feasted, the men relived their hunting adventures, and we women discussed food, kids and men. I wish you could hear the laughter and see the smiles as old and new friends shared a pleasant afternoon Southern style.
