Fried Food Fest

We finally made it all together tonight for a fried food fest at my parent's house!

Dad & Jonny fired up the deep fryer and we waited for the temperature of the oil to get high enough!

We had an assortment of veggies (Zucchini, yams, broccoli, onions, mushrooms, and pickles). We made tempura batters (regular & gluten-free) and mom made a separate batter for the onion rings. After we had gotten several rounds of veggies done up, we started in on corn dogs (regular and gluten-free)! 

Here we all are! We had a great time and just ate stuff outside as soon as it came out of the fryer!

Gabriella enjoying a gluten-free corn dog (we cut them in thirds so they cooked better).

Gabriella and Auntie Jilly eating onions together. You will notice that Jill's is deep fried and Gabriella's is raw and unbattered. She ate two whole onion rings that were completely raw!

Dad and the girls were chilly so they were hovering around the heater most of the time.

Phil was pretty good at multi-tasking. Here he is eating a deep fried twinkie while tending to the oil.
Jonny already looks like he put on 50 pounds! He had a bite of food in his cheek when I took the picture!

Matt and Gabriella. She was enjoying her piece of fried twinkie. Everyone said they were good (we couldn't eat them). Mom said they tasted like Krispie Kreme donuts.

Mom with her funnel cake batter. She was a fry master, busting out her old A&W skills!

The funnel cake didn't really hold shape, so we called them Funnel Snakes instead of cakes.
Here is a picture of Sandy's Funnel Snakes!

Mom & Ariella.
Mom has a fried twinkie, Ariella has a fried snickers bar.

Jonnny & April sharing a Funnel Snake!

Me & Jill after we were done eating.

The fry fest was a total success! Everything turned out really good and we had tons of fun laughing and hanging out around the fryer. Can't wait til next year!
