Zucchini Fritters (Grated) and One Lovely Blog Award

Grated Zucchini Fritters
These zucchini fritters may not look so pretty, but they were so delicious.  I used Vefa Alexiadou's Zucchini Yeast Fritters recipe from Sunny Mediterranean Cuisine.  Grating the zucchini makes these fritters so much tastier than yesterday's sliced zucchinis.  The only downfall to this recipe is initially knowing how much to spoon onto the frying pan, especially since I used 1 cup of flour instead of the required 1 lb (2 cups).  Yes.  Even I make silly yet tasty errors.  ~It's all a matter of getting better with practice. 

Oh, and that dip?  Yeah, it was awesome!  In fact, it was sinfully delicious!  Do you want the recipe?  I guess you'll have to come back tomorrow...

Also, I just wanted to thank Laurie at LauriesCravings and Allie at Adventures of a Middle Sister for nominating me with the Awesome Blogger Award.  For more details, see here.
