For the fish fry, Daddy brought us about a dozen fresh bass that he caught, and Drew had the pleasant task of filleting them. We soaked them in buttermilk and hot sauce, breaded them, and fried 'em up. We served our tasty fresh fish with corn on the cob, hush puppies, and cole slaw (as pictured unattractively above).
I love cole slaw because it is easy and cheap and refreshing. This is my momma's recipe, and I don't think it can be improved upon. As summer (and oppressive Mississippi humidy) approaches, you could probably use something cool and appetizing to bring to your next cook out or barbeque. So without further ado...
1 head of cabbage, chopped fine
3 or 4 carrots, shredded
1 white onion, chopped very fine
lots of salt and pepper
Combine the veggies with enough Miracle Whip to be moist but not soggy. Salt. Add pepper very liberally. Let it sit for at least an hour. Serves a bunch of people.
