Friday, Todd and I were enjoying our weekly lunch date trying to figure out a hang out spot for our friend Amy who is visiting from Far far Away. Anyway, it’s Halloween weekend and the parties for enthusiast are plentiful. I have never really been interested in Halloween as an adult (***i do love seeing kids enjoying the holiday! My favorite thing to do is hand out candy and chat with the children. No house=no candy giving) and I especially dislike costumes. I figured a good compromise would be to hold a dinner for Amy and friends as a sort of pre-Halloween party feast and all the other freaks that don’t “do” Halloween would have a refuge post dinner to be merry and drink without the pressure of costumes and what not while the others went off to party their goblin butts off.
So in the spirit of excess Todd and I came up with an epic deep fry plan. Menu items include: Pickles, Spring Rolls, Samosas, Tortellini, Ribs, a Duck, Okra, CHips, Anything we can deep fry and a personal fav: Coconut Shrimp.
- 1 lbs Shrimp (Shells Removed and De Veined)
- 1 Cup shredded and unsweetned Coconut
- 1 Cups Flour
- 2 Cups Panko Crumbs
- 1 small can of Coconut Milk
- 1 Egg

The night was a huge success and everyone enjoyed the deep fry fest. Personal favorites: The onion ring starters and Todd’s Dry Ribs! I hope that everyone is enjoying this sunny Sunday Afternoon and cooking up a feast.
