I like fried things and I cannot lie

I blame my mother. I call her the Deep-Fry Queen because that woman can fry ANYTHING. I think this is why some of my favorite foods are made with batter and thrown into hot oil. It also doesn’t help that I live in the state with the largest state fair where deep fried food is an annual novelty experience. By the way, do you think it’s possible to deep fry ducks? Since you can deep fry a chicken. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this?

I digress.

Two weeks ago Dan and I discovered how to make deep fried pickles. Sweet Jesus they were easier than I imagined. You slice up some dill pickles like thick chips, pat them with a paper towel and then coat them in flour and throw them in the bubbly oil. I served these with a creamy sour cream dip. Dan man approved. I have to say, damn that was good!
