Southern Eats

Another Monday is upon us, and it’s a very Europe-esque type here in Florida today. I love love LOVED Europe when I got to spend time there almost this time last year, but I was not too big a fan of their overcast, rainy days that are a pretty common norm.. I mean like every day. I think Mother Nature’s confused and sending some of their weather to Florida these past few days… but we’re off to work anyways!

Our weekend was filled with busyness as usual. On Sundays I like to do all of the domestic type things, clean the house, finish the laundry, get dinner prepped and hopefully (if I’m ahead) get dinner prepped for some of the week nights so that it’s not such a scramble if I forget to set something out. While I was getting the veggies ready for stew, we decided to make a southern delight for a snack – fried squash!

It was our first time doing it at home and we experimented a little bit with different processes.

We sliced up the squash into thin slices and then dipped into this mixture of flour, eggs & a pinch of salt. Next time I think 2 separate bowls: one flour, one egg. We eventually changed our process to dip in the egg mixture and then in plain flour and then throw in the pan of oil.

It might not have been the picture we were imagining when we got everything out for this, but it was pretty good! Southern comfort food is the best.

What kind of snacks do you make when you have time to do more than grab a bag of chips? I would love suggestions!
