pickled progress...

I have really been wanting Pluckers fried pickles and Mr. T, great husband that he is, got all the supplies to make his version of my favorites at home this weekend!
Ingredients included: 
smashed corn flakes, buttermilk with eggs and Louisiana hot sauce, flour, pickles, and canola oil
{While the oil was getting hot, T dunked the pickles in the milk, then the flour, and finally the corn flakes. His fingers were also well coated for frying!} 
{Our first batch cooked quickly and turned dark brown in what seemed like an instant - maybe the peanut oil would have been worth the $21 they were selling it for - but with more of a watchful eye, the second set was juuuust right! A little ranch for dipping and I felt like I was sitting on Bluebonnet in Baton Rouge enjoying my favorite fried pickles!}

Other cooking adventures of the weekend:
Beer Bread that we used for grilled cheeses
Black Bean and Cheese Dip with chorizo tacos
Oven Roasted Tomatoes at family dinner

Of course nothing tops Mom's work in the kitchen. For family dinner this Sunday we had teriyaki grilled chicken, zucchini boats, homemade guacamole dip, oven roasted tomatoes, roasted red potatoes with onion, and a fruit pizza for dessert!
{Hudson tried on his dad's glasses- doesn't he kind of look like the Jerry Maguire kid here?}
