What are Your New Year's Resolutions/Goals?

Hey guys! We are less than 2 days away from a new year. What are your plans? Well, I will be cooking out with my family the entire weekend. I'm so excited to be with my family this weekend but I also miss the warmth of my own home. I will have as much fun as I can because from January 9-13 I will be in a 8 hour a day mini session class. Can you imagine being in class for 8 hours with about 3 breaks? I think I will be in snoozeville every morning of that week. I have 3 goals for this year.

1. To get closer to God.
2. To graduate from college in May.
3. To start on my 3rd degree in August.

Comment below and tell me your resolutions.

Chicken Fried Catfish with Yummy Green Beans

I have two other blogs (one that I use to talk about my research for school and the other that I have a few of my recipes on). I only put four recipes on my food blog so therefore I am just going to slowly move those recipes over to this blog as well as add new ones. Excited yet? lol. I know the title of this post makes your mouth water. It absolutely should. This is a simple dish to make and will have your entire family in smiles. Hope you try it. :-)

Chicken Fried Catfish w/ A Side of Green Beans
2 Catfish Fillets
1-can of green beans
1/2 cup of milk
1 egg
3 tbsp of seafood seasoning
1 tbsp Accent Flavor Enhancer
1/2 teaspoon for green beans
1 cup of flour
3 slices of bacon
Pinch of ground black pepper
1/2 tbsp of salt
Deep fryer or deep skillet as these fillets were deep fried; They can also be pan fried.

Chicken Fried Catfish

Turn on the heat for your deep fryer. (I put mine on medium high)
1. In a bowl, mix egg, milk, and 1 tbsp of seafood seasoning. Set aside.
2. In another bowl (or zip lock bag), mix flour, 2tbsp of seafood seasoning and 1tbsp of Accent.
3. Now, wash your catfish, dip it into the egg mixture then dip it into the flour mixture then lay it on a plate. Repeat this for the other fillets.
4. When your deep fryer is hot enough (Check this by dropping a pinch of flour into the grease. If it starts bubbling up and frying, it's ready), drop catfish fillets in it.
5. Let them fry for about 3-4 minutes on each side (or until golden brown) and then take em out and place them on some paper towels to drain the oil.

Green beans Recipe

1. Drain the green beans then fry the bacon.
2. In the same skillet you fry the bacon in, pour the entire can of green beans into it. (Do NOT drain the grease from the bacon).
3. Now add 1/2 teaspoon of Accent, the ground black pepper, and the salt.
4. Cook on medium heat for about 15minutes.
5. Let cool for about 10 minutes to let the juices soak up into the string beans.
6. Enjoy!

Kindle is on FIRE this Holiday Season!

The Kindle has gots to be the most wanted electronic item for this holiday season. There has been lots of giveaways for them and a lot of people are hoping to get one for Christmas. Needless to say, I am one of those people. I have my fingers crossed that my hubby bought me one. I must admit that I am a technology junky. I absolutely love reading and putting two things that I love in one spot is an extraordinary find for me. In addition to this, I bought a few books I found on sale at my local bookstore. For tradition's sake, I'm thinking about doing a giveaway for a couple of those books. But, I need feedback and interest in order for me to do the giveaway... Comments below... Please. :-)
