READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! I don't read instructions. I have never in my life read instructions until all else failed.
Last week I watched a couple of Youtube videos about making zucchini fritters, and I thought it looked easy and delicious as well. Not having a food processor I had to grate everything by hand, which I didn't mind. They were delicious and got me to thinking, if they were this good for entailing all the work, I should buy myself a food processor, which I did. Costco had a small Cuisinart processor for $25 and I tried it out this morning. It took me at least a half hour to get it all assembled and connected, and I could have had all the ingredients grated by then, but at least I tried something new.
I may use it again but to tell the truth, I think my hand-grated fritters tasted better. The ones I made today are a bit mushier and the flavors don't stand apart.
A funny moment occurred when I was cutting the zucchini in smaller sections to put into the processer. While I was busy putting the pieces into the machine, Rocky came along and stole a chunk of zucchini and then ran like a rabbit so I wouldn't see him!
While I'm sitting here typing this, I've eaten the entire batch of zucchini fritters and it's only 9:49 am!
