Fellowship , Camp Fires and Camp Food !

Hubby is pulling a chicken out of his fryer. We also deep fried some Cornish game hens in this.
~We all brought our dogs camping. Here are 3 relatives of our Vizsla , Hawk. They are his son, daughter, and grandson ! Aren't they beautiful ? The dogs were very excited about dinner.
~Ahhhhhh, one chicken out of the fryer. We also deep fried some of our garden fresh snap peas dipped in tempura batter . So very, very good. There was fry bread, shrimp patties, onion rings, thick sliced potatoes, corn dogs, fried calimari, zucchini, cauliflower, mushrooms, broccoli...the only thing that was definitely not good deep fried were the pickles ! I am sure I have forgotten to mention some of the fried feast, but everything ( except pickles) was great.
"Please, please, please ? Some tidbits for us poor starving pups ? "
~ All total there were 30-35 of us gathered for Fry Night . Not including the many well behaved dogs.
More dear friends / family. Also, owners of some really handsome dogs, but we might be a bit biased !

Oh wow! That looks like you all had so much fun.

And that fallen tree. Absolutely amazing. I never knew so much could grow on a dead fall. Really fascinating, isn't it...how everything works together so well and nothing is wasted.

Fried pickles??? Blech! I can't even begin to imagine..don't even want to imagine.

What a fun camping trip you had...the dogs are so beautiful, the food is amazing...and family time is the best to see!!
Were the dogs calm through all the cooking? So many smells for so many dogs!!

Funny. Bill and I have some extended family in the (semi) deep south, and they can't get over their fried pickles. And fried green tomatoes. Neither of which I really like.

Fried snickers bars, on the other hand... :-)

Thanks for the deep fried pics! I knew you would come through!

Glad you had a wonderful trip.

Pamela, we did have fun. The trees there are amazing, and pictures and descriptions do not do them justice.

Flower, the dogs were well behaved and controlled. We added up the dogs brought by all of us and the grand total is 12 ! You would not have known there were that many, but because so many of them look alike you would probably have thought you were just seeing the same 1 or 2 all the time !

Megan,I have heard fried pickles are s'posed to be good, maybe a different type of pickle next year.Our State Fair sells fried Snickers bars, but it hasn't appealed to me yet. Do you like them ?

Noble Pig,what deep fried recipes do you have to tempt Hubby who checks out your recipes and tries many ? (Thank-you)

What a wonderful place to retreat to. Sounds like a great place for reflection and inspiration. I think the dogs were sniffing all that good cooking going on. HA! I hope they got a bite or two of chicken. :D

Yes Daisy, the dogs did get some chicken and some deep fried hot dogs, and a little bit of anything and everything a dog could want to eat at a Fried Food Fest ! plus, a bit of flatulence ! KathyB.
