We used this recipe which turned out really well. I halved it because it looked like it was going to make a lot. Even with halving it, we still had more than enough! Here is Maggie enjoying the first one--hot out of the fat!
No, I didn't photograph the frying process. I hate working with hot oil and I didn't need the distraction of the camera in my way. But all I did was mix up the batter in a bowl and pour it into a quart sized zip-lock bag. I heated a couple inches of oil in my smallest stainless pot. Then I snipped off the corner of the bag and drizzled the batter into the hot oil. It fried on one side and floated to the surface. Then I flipped it over and fried it on the other side a couple minutes. A liberal sprinkling of powdered sugar finished it off perfectly. I think Caleb's exact description was, "Amazing!"
On the quilting front, I have quite a lot going on. Really you don't want to know how many quilts I have in progress. It's pretty crazy, actually. Below is a Clover Patch quilt I'm working on. This is one I started just for fun since I love to applique by hand. It's going to have that wide green border all around the outside. There will be a vine and some flowers appliqued around that border. My plan is to get this ready to take to the beach with me next week. I always love to have some handwork I can sit and stitch when I'm away from my sewing machine.
