F is for Fried Food

Yes, another food post.  Who doesn't love fried foods though?  Maybe it's because I'm from the South, but doesn't everything taste better once it's been battered and deep fried?  Recently, last month, we celebrated Rodeo season.  One of the many things it's known for is the abundance of fried foods.  Fried anything.  Fish, tomatoes, chicken, ice cream, Snickers, cookie dough, cheesecake, okra -  I think you get the picture.  Sadly, Rodeo season occurs during Lent so I could not partake in any of the fried sweets as I had given sweets up again this year.  However, I did indulge in two of my favorites - catfish and fried green tomatoes.  YUM.  It doesn't get much better than carnival food.  Another fried weakness I have is french fries.  I could eat they every day, and from anywhere.

Although it may not be the healthiest, by far, choice to make; fried food is certainly one of the most delicious.  I'm trying to think of a fried food that I don't enjoy and I'm coming up with nothing.  In fact, the more I type, the more fried food I can think of - macaroni & cheese (Paula Deen), chicken fried steak, green beans, and the list is endless.  Given all of the options, I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.  I mean Zac Brown Band even has a song titled after it!  Ahhhhh, yum.  Do you enjoy fried foods?  What's your favorite?  I'd better close this post out, I'm making myself hungry!

My delectable selection from the Rodeo, all fried - catfish, french fries, potato slices, and fried green tomatoes!

All is well, deep fried, in Drosche Land.

  3. I love fried chicken. However, it must be done in oil with no cholesterol and the food in particular must be a dead animal. I do not like fried ice cream cones or sweets--that seems so wrong.

    1. HA! I have to say I'm not that picky on what's fried. Seeing as how sweets are my #1 weakness, frying them only makes it better! :)
