mmmm.... hush puppies.....

One random event leads to another in life, right? Well Milo got sick and I got to have my first hush puppy in @ 20 years.
Sunday evening Milo got sick, literally, a few times in the night. That meant no school for him on Monday and lots of laundry for Mom.
Well, we also agreed to take one of Milo's school friends to T-Ball Monday night so we picked up Roxie and his friend and all went to T-Ball together. Milo was laying down on the gym floor by the end of it all so we decided we should get a quick/easy dinner on the way home.
We've lived in the CD/Madison Valley area for a few years now and I've always had Catfish Corner on my list of places to try, especially after a co-worker told me about their Hush Puppies! Well - we finally tried it.
A pound of catfish, hush puppies, fried okra, collard greens and yams that have been sitting in a brown sugar & cinnamon syrup for 4 months later... we're fat, happy, and officially have a new place to grab takeout. Even found some ladies lovely enough to offer Milo & Roxie a catfish to play with while we waited for our food.
Who knew upchuck could lead to hush puppies.
until next time...
