Best-selling author John Grisham has been burning up the bookstore scene lately, and Nashville recording artist Vince Gill has been at the top of the country western heap.

Both men love catfish.

I can understand Vince. You know. The gill thing. But Grisham?

Anyway, they were both bestowed "Celebrity Catfish Lover" honors for "August National Catfish Month."

Talk about a stretch!

Although country music isn't Edna's cup of tea, a pun-ishing new cookbook arrived the other day. It's "Stand by your Pan," by Diane Pfeifer ($9.95).

Recipes have been renamed, with really AWFUL (but WONDERFULLY EDNA) country-western themes. Here's a sampling:

Caky Flaky Tart; Cheese Release Me; Grits Now or Never; I Fall to Peaches; Livin' on Salsa Time; Quiche an Angel Good Morning; and Take This Squash and Stuff It.

Real classics.
