Social Distancing: Treat Yo Self

Humans And Animals Deserve A Treat During This Pandemic


One of the favorite things my girlfriend and I liked to do in the before times was go out for apps. Every couple weeks we’d hit up one of our favorite local restaurants for happy hour and get four or five different appetizers.
So I took a stab at creating one of the most iconic dishes in the region at home, The Toasted Frog’s cheesy pickles.

Cheesy Pickles

They combine two of my favorite things into one heaven-sent appetizer.
I used my air fryer instead of deep frying them, so I could tell myself they’re not completely unhealthy.
I’m not much of a cook, but I call it a success. They hit the spot, even if they’re not quite the genuine article.
I think we all deserve a treat every once in a while.

Anna sent us a video of her husband surprising their dogs with pup cups for a social distance treat.
And they look about as excited as I did when my cheesy pickles were done.
