I give up.

I am in the middle of exam hell, so I haven't posted anything (or cooked anything) in ages. The last time we cooked, we had a fish fry. That night seems like a happy but faint memory as I prepare for my Federal Courts exam on Wednesday. But procrastination is fun, and it's nice to think back to our last Sunday Supper, so here I am posting when I should be studying.

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...

Cole Slaw

1 head of cabbage, chopped fine
3 or 4 carrots, shredded
1 white onion, chopped very fine
Miracle Whip
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.
