Halloween Three: The Final Horror


My Nemesis

That which had sought to defeat me utterly and did indeed fault me in battle once before has now been vanquished! I have my vengeance and my ultimate VICTORY!


You remember how it started-- just a bag of Talapia fillets. I don't like fish. I don't like to cook fish. But they laid there in their hermetically sealed bags in the freezer. Taunting me. Mocking me. And so I engaged them in the Choppino Battle. If you have not heard of this PLEASE CLICK HERE

A normal person would have just moved along in her life..... but it kept mocking me from inside the freezer.

We tried to give it away but no one wanted it.

Finally, I decided I had to try one more time. One Last Time

And so in the 'spirit' of Halloween I attempted once again to tame the terror inside me.

And cooked my first 'Soul' food dinner (Get it? Halloween- Spirit- Soul)


My first attempt at batter fried fish, cheesy grits, collard greens and cornbread.

My sister pronounced it a resounding success.

The War Is Over!!!!

Two questions:
1) what the hell are collard greens
2) what does this have to do with Oreos. Mmmm, now I want dessert.

You have found your calling. Chef LeAnn.

I have never cooked that so you are way ahead of me.

And, you asked about my blog, I do Magpie Tales and it's a photo promt. I write whatever comes to me and I link back to it. It's at the end of my blog.

Wayne: did you not live in the South for some of your childhood? Greens!!

JC: I am trying to break out of the box I am in and try new things like purple boots and cooking new things!
