Not to distract from the Mt. Townsend post that went up this morning (see below) but we couldn’t help ourselves on this one. We had a BIG welcome to Wisconsin in the form of an extraordinary Apple Fritter that we got from a Chowhound recommended spot called Mr. D’s. The thing is that it wouldn’t matter if the fritter was good or not, really- because of its size and yet it IS good. In fact it is excellent.
The fritter was photographed on a regular sized paper dinner plate that one might use at a picnic and note that we’d already eaten some before we took the photograph. Also note my glasses to the right… showing that, indeed, this fritter is the size of my head.
This could feed our entire building of hipsters in the East Village in NY. Bless the Midwest. Looking forward to some deep fried cheese curds next…
