You make a very valid point. I will refrain from sitting on Tuffets for the time being.

All I can say about the fried cheese curds is that frying them was a waste of a good curd. They might as well have been a cheeseball. I will save them in the future to lay upon a nice plate of gravy and fries where their squeak will be heard
And yes, after looking at them on the rack I decided to roll them in breading.

Remembering all the pictures I have seen in my children's books, I thought it was a very small hassock covered in cloth.

I looked online and it stated that is was understood to be something you could sit on, like a stool, or a hassock, but the word was used because it rhymed with Muffett, and that the word itself did not actually exist in any language.

Well it's a shame they weren't as good as you expected Pac, but I must say they do look pretty good!

Thanks, Katy.
They were OK for fried cheese balls, just a waste of curds, which aren't that plentiful where I live.

But next stop is Kansas City!!!

Ribs? We gonna have ribs? I know it's too ordinary a pick but you won't go wrong. We had ribs in KC one time. Worst neighborhood ever, but the best ribs ever. Just make sure you serve 'em up on top of slices of white sandwich bread to make it authentic. Hmm, I "wonder" why they do that...

Not ribs... unless I do a rack of them, too.
