Fritter Away the Hours in a Chef-like Way

Let's say you run out of junk mail, old credit cards, and copies of Eliot Spitzer’s new book on how to live a moral life, but you are still looking for more things to SHRED, then it’s time to make my rosemary zucchini fritters. They come out best when the zucchini and rosemary is fresh from my garden.

Ingredients:

2 cups of fresh zucchini, shredded wi
th skin included

1 small onion, chopped

3 tbsp. fresh rosemary

Dash of sea salt

Dash of pepper

1 cup of bread crumbs

2 eggs, beaten

2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Shred zucchini. (I use a cheese grater.) Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Heat oil in a frying pan and drop spoonfuls of the mixture in pan. Fry on both sides until golden brown.

I like to mix my fritters with my grandma Vincenza's wooden spoon. It was very special to her because it was her mother's spoon- grandma Santa LaCapria. It's nearly one hundred years old, all worn and broken, but magical because it makes everything good.

Are you giving my fritters an "F" or are you choosing letter "F"? (Think through your answer carefully, Milkman.)

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.

Fondly,

Loren Christie
