Zucchini Fritters & Goat Cheese Sauce

Ivory apron with colorful "Italia" text.

This is the apron that my husband wore last night.

It was a logical choice; it’s clearly the most masculine apron that I own. I knew he would enjoy the burlap style fabric. And Italia? That’s kewl. He’s kewl.

He went to go put the apron on. He stopped. Set down the apron. Walked to the window and closed the shades. I reconsidered asking for a picture.

Now, to the ultimate question: Why?

Someone needed to bravely confront the hot, splattering oil that was far too intimidating dangerous for this girl. Yes, indeed. He’s a hero like that.

And because of his heroism, we were able to enjoy these golden, crispy zucchini fritters.

I think Bjork would even say that these fritters were worth his short stint with Italia.

These little crispers were delicious! And dipped in creamy goat cheese sauce… ahhh. Perfection.

Now, if you are thinking to yourself, Those look yummy, but it sounds too hard. STOP! It only sounds hard. It is so easy! If my pictures aren’t inspiring you, click on the blog link below and be inspired.
