So the Hubs and I have found television common ground in the Food Network- although I normally refuse to watch any shows beyond Tyler Florence and Ina Garten (although I will watch old Paula Deen shows), we have become addicted to our Sunday night fix of The Next Food Network Star and Throwdown with Bobby Flay. I don't know if its because of the summertime television drought or what. Also, Hubs leaves Monday mornings because he works in North Carolina during the week, until he returns Thursday nights (he works from home on Fridays). This makes me stay up past my normal school night bedtime of 10:00 PM on Sundays.

Anyway, this is dangerous because we watch all this food late at night and become absolutely ravenous! Last night Bobby Flay was throwing down on some fish tacos that looked heavenly. I wanted some fired catfish tacos so bad last night I could have spit!

So today during lunch I headed to the Kroger to get some rice to bury my cell phone in (will explain later). Hubs wasn't feeling well (possibly too much fun with the guys on "Sunday-funday" is my diagnosis), so he's leaving for NC tomorrow (hurrah!). I started thinking about those fish tacos. However, do to never ending doc review, I have zero desire to fry fish tonight.

(I always get a hankering for my homemade fried chicken or fried pickles. Then afterwards my home smells like a KFC for a week, and I am cursing myself, vowing never to fry again)

So its this-

Along with some coleslaw mix binded with homemade citrus honey vinaigrette (probably will consist of rice vinegar, honey, lemon juice, and queso fresco to add some creaminess, maybe a little mayo), chopped avocado on a whole wheat tortilla (if I'm having frozen fried fish, I have to have a little health in there). Some Spanish brown rice, some refried beans, and we're set for dinner, Throwdown style. Yum.

Looking good catfish!

Updated to add- looks like training is a no-go tonight, as I will be stuck in the office. Luckily, the Hubs can make Rice a Roni and bake frozen fish. Good thing I went the convenience route, since eating dinner at midnight would really disturb my tummy.


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
