Mike and Erin came over for our latest version of Fry Day. And, oh did we fry some stuff. Andrew manned the fryer while I stood as far away as possible so as to not burn myself which seemed inevitable. We started off with fries. The first batch was rosemary and garlic. The second we gave to Mike, salted with ghost pepper salt which he seemed to take pretty well. The last batch was doused in Old Bay.
We then moved onto chicken wings. Mike and Erin brought over Korean and Thai style marinated chicken wings. Right before frying, Erin battered them until their hot oil bath. Those wings were da bomb. So delicious. We ate them with a different variety of Asian sauces and they were small enough that we could sample lots and lots of them.
We rounded out the meal with some deep-fried Mars bars, because…yeah. I happened to stumble upon the Mars Bars in the international section of the store, which was the only positive outcome from my trip to the grocery store. Erin made a batter for the Mars Bars out of flour, cinnamon, corn starch, and seltzer which we dipped in before putting into the fryer for about 30 seconds. They ended up sticking to the bottom of the fry basket a bit which was kind of a bummer but they were still melty and delicious.
I’ve been eating salads for lunch the past few days and I think I’m going to need another one tomorrow. Fry Day is good, but only in moderation. I think I’m good for a while.
