in the last week i’ve eaten catfish twice. i don’t know what has gotten into be but i can’t seem to get enough of it.
it started at the Bluegrass Restaurant in Ballard County Kentucky. i have been eyeing this restaurant for some time on my drive between knoxville and springfield. this time i actually stopped. what made the restaurant so intriguing the sign that said they had their own pond raised catfish.
i had to order the catfish at the Bluegrass, ya know the saying “when in rome….”. it was the best catfish fillet sandwich i have ever had. cornmeal breaded which made it flaky and crisp but not overly fried. the catfish was the lightest, flakiest catfish without an overpowered catfish taste,(i feel i’m not conveying this to its worthiness). while i ate i was entertained by a tv that flashed pictures of all things local that have happened in the last year, parades, proms, 4H competitions. i’m thinking this is now going to be a regular stop on my tennessee-missouri route.
BUT WHAT THERE’S MORE………
i think the bluegrass got me a little addicted to catfish. when the fam had lunch at cafe roswitha i had to get the catfish special. her fish was a cajun seasoned catfish with mashed potatoes and a salad. the plate looked like a ton of food, but shockingly it was light and not heavy which may have allowed some room for coconut cream pie!
