Ghetto question. served with COD

What is the most ghetto thing you’ve ever done?

Okay, I’ll go first. Becoming an adult was a ghetto idea. We have to pay bills, work, clean, and COOK every day. And that’s just to name. a few downs falls.

My husband and I often tell our kids that they better enjoy this FREE lifestyle and enjoy it while they can. Because soon, the free ride will be over!

While living the ghetto life, I whipped a quick recipe that I would like to share with my fellow ghetto adults.



Cod~ soaked in an egg, milk, pepper, seafood seasoning bath

Pankos~ 2 cups of bread crumbs~ place crumbs over the entirety of the cod

Air Fryer~ Place cod in the air fryer and lightly glaze with extra virgin olive oil

Cook~ Max crisp 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes

~Serve warm~

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. Puff , the hardest thing I made in my 50 years old… my dad was an Alzheimer disease around 14 years and it was a great lesson as hardest time.

  2. I think overcoming my depression and then, only a few years later, my mother’s cancer were what really shook me awake – and gave me great strength in hindsight.

  3. This maybe a bit out there, but I used to make fried fish sticks sandwiches all the time back in the day, complete with mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard. I’d couple it with whatever potato chips I had at the time. 🤣😂

  4. Funny and yummy post. My dad was an avid fisherman – he would boil bite-size pieces of fresh bass in water with a splash of beer and call it “Poor Man’s Lobster.” Of course, the pieces were dipped in butter. Delicious!

  5. Belladonna, only you would call this Ghetto Cod! 🐟 Girl, this is Ghetto Fab, because we used a cast iron frying pan honey chile, not an Air Fryer! You must have been in the upscale part of the ghetto, cause we weren’t rollin’ like this! LMBO 😂 😝 🤣 Have a deliciously ghetto fab weekend my friend! 👩🏽‍🍳 😋 👨🏽‍🍳

    1. 🤣🤣No not the cod but the question is, “whats the most ghetto thing you’ve done. And my answer was being an adult. And I through in a recipe.
      I still have my case iron as swear by it! 🤣 my husband calls it my welfare pot🤣🤣

      1. Belladonna, tell your husband that a cast iron frying pan or pot is one of the best ways to prepare food (then and now) because you can do oodles of things in it. It is actually one of those survivor tools needed in the event that a disaster strikes and you need to cook. You can bake, fry, boil and do just about anything in those. 😜 But girl, I got your drift.

        As an adult however, you do what you need to do to make things work. While it may not be popular, ideal, or modern, if it served it’s purpose then girlfried I’d say you have a success story there. 🥳 I’ll tell you this, some of those methods are some awesome survival skillsets. So your cod is my “whiting”! LOL 😂 😆 🤣 While there is a deeper story to the fabric of the ghetto, I love your lightheartedness with the example you shared! Thanks so much Dawlink!!! 😍 🥰 😘 Have a delightful weekend!

      2. You know now that I think about my cast iron is the only pan that is still in excellent condition and it was given to me by my grandmother. She used it for years and years. I use my almost everyday and it never fails me 🙌🏾♥️😍
        I appreciate you and your humor. I love seeing your name pop up🥰

      3. You made my day sista. 🤗 Keep on keepin’ on! And trust me, I still have my mother’s cast iron, and my husband still has his mother’s cast iron pans too. They are great and you are so absolutely right, those things last, and last, and last over the last several somewhat expensive pots and pans I have purchased over the years that were supposed to last a lifetime (or so they say)! 🤯

      4. We are blessed to have those items passed down to us. I’m going to have to sneak my sisters out of her house. Her kids are grown and her and her husbanding cook like they use to. Wish me luck 😂
