Be a fly on the wall in my kitchen any day of the week and you are likely to hear….
Mom, Did you buy pickles?
Hun, Did you buy any pickles?
Mom, are we outta pickles?
Mom, will you pack a pickle in my lunch box? We have some right?
Pickle, pickle, pickle. You would think that they lived off of pickles. I suppose there are worse things in life to want to snack on, but oh my! I have never bought so many pickles in my life. Dill pickles, Bread & butter pickles, sweet gherkins, and more.
My family loves fried pickles while we are watching football, but I am not in the mood to stand over the fryer all the time. We needed a new pickle treat.
