Every year our good buddy Lonnie throws a "customer appreciation day" at his lawn/garden shop. I have volunteered to bring my turkey fryer and fry up the hushpuppies for the event several years now.
This year, it was coooolllddd for an outside event. I actually stayed pretty toasty next to the hot oil cooker!
While they were waiting on the go-ahead to eat, most everyone milled around, stopping near the cookers often for a quick warm-up.
A nice event - a LOT of folks stop by. Many pick up their Christmas trees and wreaths on the way home.
At last, it was time to dig in! A nice, community event. (And yes, they ate every last hushpuppy!!)
