We went to Jackie’s cousin’s place in Hixson for dinner. The place was filthy and overrun with cats but the boy knows about cooking some catfish.
He and his sons had been out fishing on the Lake behind Chickamauga Dam and hauled in a load of these delicious beasts. We also had onion rings in beer batter and a massive batch of hushpuppies (these fried balls of onion, spice and corn meal — kind of matzoh balls for the Southern Baptist circuit). Just don’t risk sampling anything that slipped off the plates unless your vaccinations are up to date.
