My mission is to inspire women and girls of all ages to engage in and enjoy the traditional feminine arts of the women before us. And to be womanly and feminine, if you so desire, and stand out in a world so opposed to this. Enjoying our femininity with no apologies.**
Almost always, although it varies by region, a traditional southern-style fish fry will include:
The Fish, of course. This can be traditional freshwater Catfish, Perch, Bream, or salt-water fish, such as Flounder, Redfish, or Mullet. And it can be filets, whole, fresh-caught, frozen or store-bought.*
Hush-Puppies (Cornmeal, with a bit of flour added, egg, a small amount of water, fine-diced onions, and seasonings.)*
Fried Green Tomatoes* (Especially in the summertime.)
Ketchup, Tartar sauce, hot sauce, and/or Comeback Sauce, sometimes known as Remoulade.*
Sweet tea, by the gallon jar.* Coca Cola and/or Barq’s root beer.
Milk and light-bread, in case somebody swallows a bone.**
Frying fish in cornmeal coating is as simple as washing/rinsing the fish, draining, let dry a bit but not totally dry, then dusting with cornmeal, and place in skillet or fryer in hot oil. Make sure oil bubbles when adding a pinch of cornmeal first, the cornmeal will spread out in the hot oil. Carefully add fish and don’t turn until it is slightly browned. If deep oil frying, turning is not always necessary as long as the oil covers the fish.

**My focus is on writing content for women. I'm a woman, my ideas are mainly useful and geared toward women, but of course, anyone can read, peruse my content. I don't care to be gender-neutral, because I come from a background of mostly gender-specific lifestyle, with a few exceptions. I write from life-long experience. I had women role models, and men role models, not neutral. I write from where I have been all of my life. I will not change my wording to appease or pacify any specific group of people. If this offends you, I apologize. If this doesn't suit you - go find tips, recipes, and feminine/womanly lifestyle content elsewhere. From what I understand, fried chicken isn't gender-specific. A woman wearing a dress or skirt and an apron holding a platter of fried chicken is just a woman being herself. Isn't that what we all want is a choice to be ourselves? It's called freedom.
