1. We had fried Swai.

I liked!
I would have rather baked it, but Bill wanted fried and battered and he was cooking, so he won! It's delicious fish. Not fishy at all and really tasty!

4. Never heard of Swai.

Glad you are feeling better and have some appetite, Lucinda.

7. Related to catfish, native to SE Asia rivers, farmed elsewhere.

Firm white fish. Holds up real well to baking or breaded / batter dipped fried dishes. It's been showing up next to the tilapia in a lot of seafood departments at local markets. Fillets are thicker and firmer than tilapia, though. Tried it recently, liked it a lot.

8. Been wondering about it.

Swai started popping up in the grocery stores here over the past year. It's really inexpensive, too. I may have to give it a try one soon. I'm a big fan of Parmesan-crusted fish, and Swai sounds like it might be good for that.

13. I've been seeing the fillets at the store.

Since I never heard of it I was hesitant to buy some. I like catfish so I think I'll give swai a try.

2. Fettucine with sauce, sauteed spinach and garlic, and a salad

The sauce is in the crockpot. I've been cleaning house and washing clothes most of the day. Sounds like you are feeling better.

6. Spicy padh thai noodles/chicken/white rice.

No, I don't cook Thai - leftovers from a big lunch. Met ex-boss for lunch today, we've maintained our friendship. More than enough food for another meal later today.

11. I could eat pad thai every day for every meal

and never get tired of it.

It's not hard to make but I have an under/over done noodle issue. Have to go buy two or three batches of noodles so I can practice without caring about wrecking them. That worked well when I learned how to make low mein, also pretty easy.

9. Pizza with cauliflower crust.

Taking advantage of another fabulous produce deal from Aldi. I tend to roast my cauliflower, and I decided to do something different. I have the fixin's for pizza, so what the heck. Still have another head, and that will probably wind up roasted, or turned into faux mashed potatoes.

10. Venison stew with carrots, potatoes and onions

a pan of buttermilk cornbread, a tall glass of unsweetened ice tea. Maybe some apple Brown Betty with a little cream for dessert.

Standard home cooked food for this area.
