Directions: Line a cookie sheet with paper towels; set aside.
Whisk the egg and water together in a mixing bowl. Add flour, salt, and baking powder and beat for 2 minutes.
On one slice of bread, arrange 2 slices of ham and cheese. Spread preserve of your choice on the remaining slice of bread and place on top.
Heat oil to between 365 degrees F and 375 degrees F in a 10-inch pan. Do not let the oil reach a higher temperature than this. Dip the sandwich into the batter, allowing excess to drain, and very carefully place into the oil.
Cook 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Cook one at a time, and allow the oil to reach the desired temperature between each. Place the cooked sandwich on the prepared cookie sheet in a warm oven until ready to serve. Repeat with the other three sandwiches.
Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and serve with additional preserves on the side.
So, you know how you have those great ideas, the ones that you are so proud of yourself for thinking up? ...only to look on pinterest and see that your creativity is the tortoise to pinterest's hare? Yeah, it blows.
Well, this week I told pinterest to Suck It! I had an original idea. I even googled it and found nothing. Ahhh, sweet success.
Ok, enough about my issues with Pinterest. Onto my very (ok, fairly) creative valentine card idea. I have to preface this by saying that I love doing photo Valentines for the girls. It saves me harping at them for a week ahead of time and begging them to write their names onto 25+ cards. Everyone knows who their valentine is from when it's a picture of your child. Lazy parenting for the win!
Have I lost you yet with all of these words? Well, here is this years Valentine:
I love it!
I started with simple "thinking/ wonder" poses of the girls.
Then I used Picmonkey to edit the photo and add simple text. Simply attach a Twinkie to the back and there you have it!
Happy Valentine's Day from Livvy Loo!
