Extra: Catfish is a favorite meal for my guys and making it in the oven at home allows us to save money and be as creative with our seasoning as we want to be. After the food was ready, the guys all reached for the loaf of sandwich bread in the kitchen. When I asked why, they explained they wanted to eat sandwiches. There are no leftovers tonight, but all tummies are full!
