This afternoon, I spent a fair bit of time making what I thought was a treat for the kids' afternoon snack: Apple Fritters. It was a recipe I'd sampled years ago but had never made because it involved deep frying...which I've never done. But today I made the effort and served up these delicate little morsels to the kids.
I thought they were pretty darn good. But my opinion (clearly) was not the consensus.
Matthew's response: "They're ok, I guess. I like tim bits from Tim Hortons way better though. One bite of these is plenty."
Seth's response (smacking lips and frowning...as if he's some kind of food critic): "Hmmm. I'd say they're bad to medium. Do I have to finish it?"
Lizzie's response (no hesitation): "Yuck. They look terrible. I don't want one. May I please have cucumbers from lunch?"
Seth right away demanded cucumbers too.
I'm never making fritters again. And now what do I do with the leftover oil from deep frying?
