Sure, that's their origin. What's wrong with deep-fried cornbread? It's
tasty.

I'm always willing to pay to have someone else deep-fry for me.

Usually the only time I will crank up a fryer is if I have a gang.
Otherwise you have a lot of money in oil for a little bit of food.
I do splurge now and then tho, just for some decent french fries and
that usually means a fish fry too (shrimp, scallops etc).
Those are the nights I understand I am not going to live forever. ;-)

I've never thought it prudent to become proficient at deep frying. I do
enough damage with the skills I already have.

As a damnyankee, I don't have a family tradition of deep frying.

Cindy Hamilton

No nice, crispy calamari?

Let me put it this way:

My mother and I lived with her parents until I was about 9 years old. Every
Tuesday, my grandmother had the day off from her job. She went to the
fish market and for dinner that night we had whitefish, breaded with
cornflake crumbs, pan fried.

That's my family tradition. Cornflake crumbs.

Might have been a step up from flour. A recipe I never tried to
replicate consisted of parboiling chicken, rolling it in flour, and
frying it. The final product tented to have large clumps of semi-cooked
flour. I was never good at breading so I don't.

Fortunately our whitefish appeared on Friday, professionally cooked.

The second from the left photo on the bottom is the iconic fish fry, a
strip of fried fish on a hot dog bun with a sweet chili sauce. I've
never seen anything quite like it in my travels but the Deeb family has
run it for over 60 years.

The place around here only has cornflake crumbs, unimpressive.


Cornflake crumbs or cornmeal? Cornflake crumbs sounds unusual;
cornmeal much more likely.

Cindy Hamilton


My wife told me cornflake. I don't have the incentive to check or return there
to find out, sorry. It's edible, but not next level.

Gotta be hip and use panko.


Yeah, that's next level. Wife gets breaded shrimp and them bakes them for a
healthier alternative. One location has ok breading and other has some
'Italian' breading which is more to my taste.

Okay, you see the Amish using them. We called them sickles. (I'm just a dumb
dutchman). It is on the list of items that I have used but will never use
again. It is hot boring work.


A sickle is an edged weapon of a different breed. Hammer and scythe just
wouldn't have worked for a symbol.

A few decent places around here. We have a cop here that speaks Italian that
has been called on 5x the times of the Spanish speaking one. Whoda thunk?


I was driving down a narrow street in Fall River when a little girl ran
out between two parked cars, fell, skinned her knee, and took off
running. She didn't come in contact with the car but I figured I'd
better pursue it anyway. The bodega knew the kid and where she lived so
the cop and I went there. Heated discussion in Portuguese ensued. The
cop said 'Don't get worried. They're just tearing the kid a new one for
playing in traffic.'

The cop also gave me a dose of reality. Kid, police report, ER added up
to my insurance was paying even though all witnesses and the kid agreed
she just fell over her own feet.

Lovecraft got a lot of inspiration out of that part of the world. About
46% of the population of Fall River is Portuguese so I imagine fluency
is a job requirement for a cop.
