    It's not a dish that would win a beauty contest—that's for sure! But it is delicious!

    It's not just you! The first thought that came to my mind was of a sick cat I used to have. That's as far as I'll go

    HELP! I need some ideas for veggies to go with this menu. I would prefer do-ahead sides as most of the other stuff is last minute.

    Fried Catfish
    Hushpuppies
    Fried Potatoes
    Coleslaw

    I need a couple veggie sides and a light dessert. A sugar free dessert would be a bonus. I'm doing this right around spring break here the end of March. So I was thinking of doing spring related foods.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    I wish they made Reuben sandwiches with pastrami instead of old, gross corned beef. That is a great sandwich, except for the corned beef. Too much fatty junk for me!

    That sounds yummy just as it is! We used to fry catfish years ago and had just what you've got there

    If you consider corn on the cob a vegie, that's always good (I'd always fry my catfish after dredging in cornmeal). A nice, green salad would suffice, in my opinion - baby spinach, broccoli florets, finely diced shallots, grape tomatoes, cucumber, celery, etc. - with a very light dressing that will compliment, not cover up the catfish flavor (I have a wonderful recipe for a light dressing if you're interested, it doesn't hide the taste of the vegetables)

    The catfish is the star of a meal like that

    With all that heavy fried stuff, I would go with local, seasonal crudités to balance it out.
    And for dessert: seasonal fresh fruit, with a side of sauce/dip/drizzle of simply Greek-style yogurt with local raw honey. Or a fruit sorbet with granola and a drizzle of raw local honey.
