I thought we were done with the cold weather. Yesterday we were in the 80s but today, we woke up and it was freezing. Since we did not have any particular plans, we stayed in, warm, cozy, and happy.
Sunday dinner is always quality time for our family. Today is no different. Our meal was simple and delicious. I made a beautiful pecan crusted blue catfish which I served with a delicious baked pasta with vegetables.
