Here’s yet another not-low-calorie recipe that was pre vacation and will not be repeated for a while . . . although I did recently purchase a new skimmer (which for some reason I thought was actually called a spider), so there may be some deep-frying again some day.
For now, we can just enjoy the beautiful pictures.
Fried calamari is our go-to appetizer if it’s on the menu, no matter how it’s prepared. Shockingly, this is the first time I have made it at home. I have worked with squid one other time, but it wasn’t fried; however, both recipes were compliments of Giada and Everyday Italian.
It’s hard to believe that these little critters fry up so nicely.
After a little swim in some 350 degree oil they’re ready for my plate.
Totally worth the effort.
In other news: I had my hair colored today at Van Michael in Buckhead. The lady that sat down after me drove all the way from Augusta for her appointment. Uh, that’s about 2.5 hours. I can’t really judge: when I lived in PA I used to go six hours back to Columbus for my favorite salon. Of course I used the excuse of visiting my family, but still.
Eat Well and Savor.
