When you've got fritters?
Today we spent most of the day in Ripley, OK - believe it or not. Heh! Emi had a basketball tournament there.
I don't get to watch most of the games....can you guess why?
Sure, they are cute with their curly hair and brown eyes, but sometimes I'd like to watch Big Sis for just a moment.
After we got home and I loved on my sweet little Gracie for a bit, I got busy with a Mexican themed dinner - chicken taquitos from the store, white beans with rotel and cilantro and home made guacamole. I used the jalapeno I found in the garden along with a few home grown grape tomatoes and it was yummy. Even David ate some and he claims he does not like avocado.
So after last week when I fell in love with lemon sage fritters, I got the urge to make apple fritters for the family. I googled for a recipe and of course, Pioneer Woman had a recipe and so I had to try hers. Ree has never steered me wrong. We deviated from the recipe right off the bat with the omission of the 3 tbsp sugar (listed under the 1/2 C of sugar (?)) and also, we used Sunrise Apples instead of Granny Smith because that's what we had on hand.
Oh, and instead of glazing the finished fritters or dusting them heavily with powdered sugar, we used a drizzle of caramel. Oh my!
I sure had some happy campers in the house tonight!
