  1. I bet these are good, too bad I don't like fish.

    1. What is it about fish that puts you off? Is it that you don't eat any kind of meat? I can understand that. Sometimes it is very hard for me, too, and think it would be very easy to go completely vegetarian or vegan. I can't stand the thought of eating a fish that still has a head on it. I've seen it that way in some stores in the past and thought it very disgusting. ICK.

      I love fried catfish and perch, but do not like to fight bones in my food.

      Some of the recipes sound interesting to me, but I know we won't be trying that one with jalapenos in it. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed day. :)
