Food From the Homeland

I am back in Iowa for the week- hanging out with my parents, annoying my little brother and enjoying my academic freedom. Dinner last night was quite delicious and beautiful. A lovely Iowa farm-friendly meal of mashed/smashed/whipped potatoes, an assortment of vegetables, and pork chops. Of course I had to go and ruin the farm-friendliness with my catfish filet.

1. Boiled potato cubes

2. Mashed potato cubes

3. Whipped potatoes


George-Formaned pork chops. It was raining outside. Not good grilling weather.

My catfish.
Now that I think about it more, farms have ponds right? Some catfish live in ponds. Maybe catfish could be farm-friendly. Never-the-less, I still recieved some slight oxtracization from my family for choosing fish over pig. They just don't know what they're missing...

  1. I like fish too! Although I must admit, I stick to tuna and salmon, with the occasional tilapia.
    We get to eat catfish this weekend to celebrate my cousin's birthday. I'll let you know what I think.
