I feel like the statute of limitations  (heh, when I was a kid I thought it was “statue of limitations”, like there would be an imposing life-size figure standing in your way if you tried to go back too far) on writing about Mexico is about up. We’ve been back in the states almost as…

Homemade Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Ah, fried mozzarella sticks. The toddler silencer. The fairgoers’ midway snack. The fuel of the currently drunk, or the consolation prize for the recently drunk, these little nuggets of crispy, melty, gooey heaven are a sure-fire crowd-pleaser.

Today’s sandwich features another outstanding homemade sausage from Fresh Approach; this time, their Garlic & Cheese pork sausage, with a salad of marinated chopped tomatoes and fresh pearl mozzarella. The bun is a “Small Italian Roll” from Botto’s Bakery in Portland. I first purchased them because I thought they would be Wonder-esque: pillowy, soft, and…
