Dessert or Dinner?

A few months ago when Hubby and I were walking around Bed, Bath & Beyond, we found a funnel cake kit. It had a red plastic pitcher with a special spout, a red plastic shaker for your powdered sugar, and mix for regular funnel cakes and apple/cinnamon funnel cakes. Of course the apple/cinnamon doesn't sound too good to me, but that's another issue.

The box got tucked away in the kitchen cabinet, and for some reason we forgot all about it. When I was digging around for all our pitchers Wednesday night before the boil order went into effect (yep, you read that right, and as of Thursday night at midnight it was still on), I found the box. I made a command decision that as soon as the kids had macaroni and cheese for dinner, they could have funnel cakes for dessert.

Hubby and I would just have them for dinner.

Here's one of the five. It's a beautiful sight to behold.

It must be a Southern thing, because when Hubby went to work on Thursday he was still blubbering about it, and people didn't know what they were. One guy asked if it was like a waffle; another guy asked if it was like a volcano cake.

Now we just need to find refill mixes to go along with the red plastic funnel cake pitcher. We'll be making a trip back to the store soon to see if they sell those too.

Then I may have to start working these into my weekly menu plans.
