I should have a picture to go with this post and the subjects were all eaten last night. We hosted the Tahoe Truckee Fly Fishing Board for their monthly meeting on our deck with Southern bar-b-cue. We have a wonderful place in town - Moe's - that caters so I had them prepare the food for the meeting. I chose ribs, baked beans, coleslaw, and . . . hush puppies!
The board's tradition is to go to a pizza place, order pizza and beer and split the cost. So - I ordered bar-b-cue and we split the cost. In order that they would know what they were buying, I sent out the menu ahead of time. One woman told me she could hardly wait to have hush puppies again. Other than that people said "what are they? Where does the name come from?" And the comment I loved the best: "I Googled them when you sent me the menu to see what I would be eating."
