Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 11

Recipe 236
Cornmeal-Crusted Catfish and Green Rice Pilaf
Matt rating *** (I would give it 4)

Ingredients used:

Unsalted butter
Thyme leaves
Long-grain rice
Dry white wine
Chicken stock
Flat-leaf parsley
Spinach leaves
Basil leaves
Catfish fillets
Yellow cornmeal

This post will be short as I am typing one-handed because I am holding a bag of ice in the other on the burns I received while making this dish. Note to self...never grab a frying pan by the handle after it's been in a 400 degree oven!!! Anywho, I finally dared to make an actual fish dish tonight and was very proud of Matt for eating half of his catfish fillet, and for giving it a decent rating! I love catfish so this was a yummy dish for me. I only had to get three ingredients from the store today since I had everything else already. The cornmeal crust was really good and the rice was pretty interesting! I love how RR finds ways to make rice or mashed potatoes interesting by adding different ingredients to them.

Well I can't type much more so hopefully my hand will quit burning before I hit the sack here in a few minutes. I will be taking a two night break since we have dinner at church tomorrow and then I'm eating at a friend's house Thursday. We are having our friends over Friday night and I'll be making them Salmon for their 10 year anniversary! I'll be making chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese for their kids and Matt, since I won't make him eat fish twice in one week :) Have a great night!
