The weeone and I were having an epic conversation the other day about fried foods. She mentioned she didn’t know what a fritter was. *GASP* Total parenting fail. Now, granted, fritters are often not the healthiest food on earth, but for a southern girl, it’s something you should at least be aware of by age 9!
Thus the Corn and Crab Fritter recipe. Weeone thought a corn fritter sounded great and I had some crab I wanted to use up, so we combined the two and made ourselves little balls of deep fried goodness.
*I will go on record that this was NOT something that I should have been eating given my 40 by 40 quest, but sometimes, you’ve just got to live a little!
