Last Saturday my two-year-old daughter, Guenna, and I went to the store to get some donuts for the family, a Saturday morning treat. She cracks me up! We get into the car and she did not stop talking the entire time we were on our little date! Anyway, after we picked up our donuts (which she wanted to eat before we purchased), we were walking to the check out and I spotted the fish and got a crazy idea, I should make some batter fried fish. I’ve never made it before but my mom was coming over and I thought she could help me. So I bought some fish, and headed home. A little unsure that my plans would turn out, and even more unsure that my kids would like the fish.
We found a recipe for the batter and got it started when we realized that it called for 3/4 cup flat beer. Hmmm, we have some beer but it’s not flat. And we didn’t know how to flatten it quickly, anyone know the trick? So we subbed 3/4 cup milk and added 2 teaspoons of baking powder, the batter was perfect! Yeah! And the kids loved the fish, Guenna thought it was corn of all things! The boys especially loved the batter but they ate the fish as well. So it was a successful experiment. I love it when it when my experiments actually turn out :) So now I have another recipe to add to my, “the family likes this one” list!
