BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A north Mississippi youth is becoming a regular at the White House.

For the second year in a row, Reed Lindsey will head to the White House to dine with First Lady Michele Obama.

Lindsey is one of 54 kids throughout the nation who sent in a winning recipe for the Obama's Healthy Lunchtime Challenge.

In less than 30 minutes Lindsey can turn a simple catfish meal into his winning recipe, Lindsey's "Mississippi Catfish on a Bed of River Rice."

With a pond in the backyard, and vegetables from a relative's garden, the recipe was a no brainer for the Lindsey family.
"We thought it would be nice to tell the White House what we have in our home that tastes so good that other people might enjoy," said Reed's mom, Lisa Lindsey.

"My favorite thing to do is go to the catfish pond behind my house.  I feed the fish, the ducks, and make sure all is in order at my little cabin," says Reed.

The Lindseys will fly to the nations capital July 7. 

The contest was organized by Epicurious Magazine and First Lady Michelle Obama.
