Dreaming about summer...




I know most of the country has been hit by snow and cold temperatures, it's been cold here too.

Can't stop thinking about warm weather, the garden, baby pigs, ducks,chicks and calves, camping and of course fishing.
To ease my spring fever I thawed out a few catfish filets caught during the summer at my favorite little lake. 

Didn't do anything fancy... tossed them in a mixture of cornmeal, flour, salt and cayenne pepper.



fried til crisp...






They tasted sooooo good...and took my mind off what's going on outside. :)

 
 
I do enjoy the snow though.  It will make for green pastures this spring. Reminds me... I need to gather my snowballs for the 4th, make a few snow angels and a BIG batch of snow ice cream before it's gone.  :)
 
Hope everyone else is making it through winter in good shape. :)

dreaming about spring/summer sounds like a good plan, especially with a fish fry. JP and I did a freezer inventory and we have some fish that will just fit that bill!
Keep looking for that perfect full moon,,,blessings from the holler

I'm still looking for that perfect full moon. All of them I've seen have been pretty amazing. :)
Thank you!! Hope you all are keeping warm. :)
