LILLIAN CROOK: WildDakotaWoman — Three-Skillet Supper

It was a three-skillet supper day at Red Oak House on Monday. Walleye fresh from the Missouri River, fried red potatoes from our garden and creamed corn we put up in August.

Just like my Mama Crook did, I cooked up this “mess of fish,” dredging the filets in self-rising cornmeal (mixed with salt and pepper) and frying these in oil. I have so many wonderful memories of delicious meals served at her Mississippi kitchen table, and I know that heaven will be when I can eat one of her light, fluffy biscuits again.

The peppa made me sneeze repeatedly!
