Thankful Thursdays

It's Thankful Thursday and I've been thinking a lot about what I'd like to share with you all, that I'm thankful for.  So I thought about what I did this past weekend, and it hit me like a clogged artery.  I am so thankful for the invention of:


I don't think I can find a better or strong enough word for how good these things are.  These little pieces of heaven are, simply put, DELICIOUS.  If you love pickles, chances are you'll love them fried.  The first time I had them was at a Hooters.  My friend Lisa said that they were one of the best things that she had tried and that me and my other friend Liz needed to give them a try too.  I was very skeptical because pickles or any other vegetable, in my opinion, should not be fried.  And when you think of the tangy & salty (and sometimes bitter) taste of pickles, you don't think, "Oh how do we make these saltier and fatty?"  Well too bad I never thought of it, because it was like an orgasm bursting in my mouth.  What? Too graphic?  Well, they were that good.  They still have that tangy & salty taste, but the dough doesn't make it any more salty.  It's a perfect balance of tangy/sweet/salty, and the fact that the pickles stay so crunchy, just makes them even better.  I had them again at Buffalo Wild Wings this past weekend and it was wonderful.  And the best part (though my boyfriend wouldn't agree) was that they came with this chipotle style dipping sauce.  AHHHHH! It was so good. Every bar and restaurant in America should have this on their appetizer menu.  In the words of our beloved Snooki on the Jersey Shore, "Eating Fried Pickles was a life-changing experience."

Happy Blogging All! AND Happy St. Patrick's Day.  Hope you're all drinking green beers & munching on some Fried Pickles.
