The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 66

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  So glad you could join me again!!

Busy day today…  finally finished my blanket for the next camp-out, it’s pretty!  It’s one huge granny square, but it’s all scrap yarn from about a hundred other projects, plus about three full skeins of yarn, so it’s like a big rainbow, but square.  Don’t know if I mentioned it, but I finished William’s last week, also one huge granny square, but his is all shades of blue.  He’s already been using it on the couch in the mornings between breakfast and time to get ready for school, so I guess he likes it!

Started a little shawl from the last of the regular weight yarn I have stashed around here, figure that way I’ll have something other than a huge blanket to wrap around me if I get chilly while camping.  Although, here in Florida, that won’t be an issue for too many more weeks.  But we keep talking about camping as a family, so in theory, we’ll be doing this year round eventually, so I’ll need it again next year.

Went over to a friend’s house and went swimming for a while, tried out the new bathing suit, worked out well.  Got myself a tank top with a built in shelf bra and a tankini bottom on sale last fall, so for less than $15 I have a nice new bathing suit for this year.  Water was a little chilly at first, but I got used to it, and we all had fun.

Anyway, you’re not here for the family stories, so here’s the recipe of the night:

Fish Nuggets

3 frozen Tilapia fillets, thawed in cold water

1 cup Panko bread crumbs

1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup Everglades seasoning

Oil for frying

Rinse fish fillets, don’t pat them dry for this recipe.  Cut them into bite sized pieces.

Mix bread crumbs, flour and seasoning in a wide shallow bowl.  Put in about 5 to 6 fish bites at a time, toss them around in the bread crumbs, pressing them down lightly to make sure they get well coated.  You can also moisten the pieces of fish before putting them in the crumb mixture if you need to, just to make sure they all get some of those yummy Panko bread crumbs on them!  I know some of mine dried out a little before I could get them into the bread crumbs, just from sitting on the cutting board.

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet.  Put about half the fish bites in the pan at a time, cooking about 2-3 minutes per side or until a nice golden brown.  When done, remove to a serving platter covered with paper towels to soak up some of the excess oil.  Serve!

We had ours with some of the leftover beef flavored rice from a couple of nights ago, peas and broccoli.  All in all, a nice meal!  Even William liked the fish, so much that he had seconds!  That’s an achievement around here…

So, now I’m thinking dessert might be in order, but not sure what I want…

Until tomorrow friends, eat well, love well, live well!
