When it comes to parties, arriving late is “fashionable”. No one wants to be the first one there, you want to be the last one, to make an entrance. However, when the party is yours, you kinda need to show up, right? Lets just all agree that I can still make an entrance to this months Sourdough Surprises party, ok?
We are almost all moved in now, just a few boxes here and there left, some pictures to hang up. But we still have some purchases we need to get. A lawnmower (we’ve already made a name for ourselves in the neighborhood as the worst lawn caretakers), a dining table and chairs, and a tv. Technically we have a tv, a big one, and a nice big stand to put it on. But there isn’t really anywhere to put this tv and stand, especially when there are 3 (yes, THREE) wall mounts in various rooms around the house. So we still don’t have cable or internet since there ins’t any point in getting it when we don’t have the equipment to run it on. This is why I’m late to my own party, LOL, because you can’t really just go to the library or wherever you find free wifi with 2 little girls and expect to get anything done at all.
When we first picked this challenge I knew immediately what I wanted to make! Apples dipped in a sourdough batter, fried and sprinkled (err, rolled) in cinnamon and sugar. They are quick and easy to make and oh my, oh my, are they delicious! I made two apples worth and it was really more than 2 adults and a tot could handle. But we ate it all just the same!
Please stop by the other wonderful blogs who participated in this month’s Sourdough Surprises Fried Foods challenge and see what deliciousness they fried up!
