It's Friday! It's Friday!!
I have a friend who used to celebrate "Fried Fridays" - this meant that if she ate healthy all week long, she would reward herself with something utterly and sinfully delicious and of course, fried. While I am not disciplined enough to do it (after all, I'm an ice cream addict), I love the idea of "Fried Fridays". So - here is my little contribution to that concept :-) I tried these for the first time last summer while travelling cross country, and I fell in love with this appetizer. It may completely yuck some of you out - but trust me, it's delicious!
Also - there is still time to enter and win the groovy Stella and Dot necklace! It's my latest favorite thing! Click here to leave a comment under my "Giveaway" post The winner will be drawn on Sunday and announced on Monday!!
