I know, I know, I am riding this summer theme, but it is truly one of my favorite times of year. I love the laid back nature, the lazy mornings at the pool, and summer fruits and veggies - they are just icing on the cake.
I don't fry much and when I say I don't fry, I mean like I literally do it four or five times a year. My mother didn't have a lot of time for frying and with my daddy being a doc, he wasn't a fan. Our neighbor, Sandra Johnson, was and I remember many a night enjoying some of their garden goodies, the day's fresh catch, or a turkey during Thanksgiving time (that Mr. Johnson brought home from a hunting trip - of course). I loved getting to eat at their house. So... the few times I fry each year I remember Mrs. J and all the good, fried food she fed me. :)
If you have never fried before and you want to give these a try here is a quick and easy recipe.
1 sweet onion (Vidalia is best)
cut into thin slices
cover in 1/4 cup of buttermilk and salt and pepper
