I saw a recipe for churros and I thought hey I should try and make them, it seemed easy enough. I got my ingredients ready.
Here is the batter before you add the 3 eggs. This is for 4 servings.
I got my pastry bag ready for the batter while my oil heated up. I had the wrong tip because I had used my other one for my faux cupcakes, and once you use them for fake food you can never use them for real food. I will have to order another one...so I used this one as that was the only one I had.
This was the size saucepan the recipe said to use. I got the oil to the right temp and started to add my batter.
This was the first batch draning on my valuable paper towels.
I hoped these were good enough to use half a cup of my also valuable sugar and some cinnamon. So then I kept cooking more and now I see that not only is it 4 servings, but you really needed 4 people to do it. I needed someone to cut the batter with the scissors as I needed 2 hands to squish it out of the too small tip. Plus the danged pot was too small and about the third batch it started to bubble and I had to take it off the stove and had to hold it over a dish as the oil bubbled out of the pan. This is where another person would have been handy to get the other bigger pan out of the cupboard.
This was reminding me of when I burned my Mum and Dad's kitchen (that also was grease too I believe). So I poured the oil in the bigger pan and added more oil as it was not deep enough and heat it up again. The whole time thinking my every growing buttocks really does not need these greasy sugar things...but I was determined.
Then I was like I am making them longer so I was not standing there all morning making churros.
Then I was like I don't even care what shape they are.
Here are the finished one and only time I will make churros.
These are the dirty dishes from my baking session.
The stovetop was a greasy mess.
They were not that bad, but am certain the smaller tip made them skinnier than they should have been. I remember them being doughier.
Then I got to thinking do I even like churros? Nope is the answer. Not mine anyway.
Oh and today is my birthday Jeff asked what I wanted and I said I didn't need anything. I said does it count if we can't celebrate on my day? So I don't think it does. I told him when this is all over we will go out for supper...till then, churros anyone? Urp!
