    mos ,
    Your menu sounds really good. One question is your catfish fresh or store purchase?

    oops! it appears that I left out the 'banana' part...
    Peanut Butter-Banana Fluffernutter Bars
    Bars:

    1 1/2 tsp baking pwder
    1/2 tsp cinnamon

    1/2 cup chunkey peanut butter
    1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    2/3 cup whole milk
    1/2 cu crumbled dried banana chips
    Icing:
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 egg white
    1 cup marshmallow creme
    Garnish:
    1/3 cup chopped salted roasted peanuts
    16 dried banana chips
    Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Beat peanut butter, brown sugar and butter in large bowl at medium-high speed 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla until belended and smooth. At low speed, beat in flour mixture alternately with milk just until smooth, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup banana chips. spread batter in pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or unti rich golden brown, bars start to pull away from sides of pan and toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbes attached. Cool in pan on wire rack. Meahwile, heat sugar, 1 tbs water and egg white in medium saucepan over low heat. Beat at high speed 3 minutes or until soft peaks form. Remove pan from heat. Beat in marshmallow creme 5 to 6 minutes or until almost cool and stiff peaks form. spread over bars. Top with peanuts and 16 dried banana chips. 16 bars = about 210 calories.
    this is DD's creation (she's the dessert master), as she's always trying to come up with interesting recipes that has her mother's favorite favorite food -- peanut butter! however, the 'garnish' is my addition...which she believes is not necessary so you can decide!
    I baked a bunch of sweet treats over the holidays and saved a few for me for dessert, then I'm swearing off desserts for at least a month...well...we'll see...encourage me!!!!!!!!!
    fyi -- the little wench makes an amazing pumpkin-peanut butter cheesecake with chocolate drizzle and she won't share the recipe! ACK!
    AND she just announced over the holidays that she's been accepted to culinary school so she's not going to be a music teacher...she's going to be a chef. I'm proud, but I wish she'd do the last semester to get the degree and THEN go off to become a chef. nowadays, you need all the skills you can get to get and stay employed;-\
