Fish and Chips

Fish and Chips

I hope all of the Mothers and Mother figures had a wonderful weekend! I had a lovely Mothers Day starting with breakfast made by my sweet hubby and then working in the garden. We had a nice barbeque dinner at our daughters house, then our niece stopped by with her sweet new baby boy. It was a terrific day . Before I get started with the recipe for today I would like to apologize to all of the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop linkers. I haven’t made it to your blogs yet. I am sorry, Life sometimes requires time away from the pc. I will do my best to get caught up, and to visit you when you link up this week. The other night my darling husband had a craving for fish and chips. So that means fish and chips for you today too.

Lets Make It!   In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Stir in the milk and egg; stir until the mixture is combined and the batter is smooth.

Serve with hot chips (fries)

  1. Glad you had a great Mother’s Day!

  2. This is one of my favorites, Katie. I went to a barbeque last weekend and was served a large chunk of cod that had been prepared in an outdoor cooker. It was delicious. I could eat fish every day of the week and be ecstatic!

  3. Im not much of a “fresh fish” eater…but I do like some of the frozen varieties.

    Im glad you had a wonderful Mothers Day! =)
    My Daughter and Son in law, and my Son took me out to eat at my favorite
    Mexican Restaurant over the weekend, and gave me a lovely card.

    Sounds so delicious. I had some awesome Fish & Chips in London last year!!!!

  8. I love fish & chips as long as the fish doesn’t taste “fishy”….extra tartar sauce is a must for both the fish & the fries!…:)JP
