Labor Day Celebrations

For Labor Day this year, my family, my grandparents, and my cousins got together and made potato chips and funnel cakes. Boy, were they delicious! We fried them both in a rather rusty contraption that worked quite well none the less. (Don’t worry, my grandaddy cleaned the inside of the kettle quite thoroughly.)

The oil in the kettle had beautiful reflections in it of the trees above.

Next we fried funnel cakes. It took a bit of experimenting to get the batter the right consistency, but boy were they delicious! Here is a link to the recipe we used. At first the batter was too thick, but it made some quite interesting shapes.

Finally we got the batter the right consistency.  Are you hungry yet?

We had lots of extra batter left, which made some tasty, very smooth waffles, although they were a little tougher than normal.
