One could probably hope I was returning to form with an article about steak, but alas, I am sorry to disappoint. This post is just to let those of you who still appear to be coming here on a fairly regular basis--though a good number of you, I am certain, are spambots, from all the new comments I have about sex cams--that Catfish's Dishes is on a temporary hiatus while I attempt to work on a short horror film called "Checkmate."
Want to keep reading about food? Then I will continue to plug Macheesmo. That guy has the goods.
Want to see what I am up to? Go to my film blog or check out my Kickstarter campaign.
Thanks for all of your support.

As I've said before, fish is something that I enjoy eating but haven't gotten much of a handle on cooking. Last time, I put tilapia in a packet and trusted the oven to do it's thing, with good results. Still, one recipe isn't enough to get fish into regular rotation at the house; to be a featured player at dinner time, an ingredient has to be versatile. Versatile or pizza.

Facebook and Twitter; I also don't usually plan out my blog topics more than a week in advance. The Atomic Chicken, however, has been on my mind for some time. Years, in fact. In "real life," I earn a living as the custodial supervisor for the local college. Each year in January, before students return from their Christmas break, the various bosses in the facilities department get together for a chili cook-off. However, unlike the start of the school year barbecue (which is matched by a pizza party for the graveyard shift), there is no equivalent event for those custodians who work at night; it is a day shift tradition only, and until August of this year I worked at night. Except, that is, briefly at the beginning of 2007. That year, I joined the day staff as a regular custodian just a week or two before the chili event. I came, and I ate, but I didn't contribute. While I enjoyed (most) of what I had, one thing was missing. Heat. Those of you who have been with me over a year may recall that I'm somewhat of a pepper belly. A chili cook-off devoid of spice just seemed wrong. As fate would have it, I didn't make it to 2008's chili feed; I was back on the night crew. So when I rejoined the day staff as supervisor this past August, one of the first questions I asked my crew was "are they still doing that chili thing?"
