My cyberfriend Jill is enjoying her amazing blooming garden; as for me, I'm thinking about the roses and bulbs that I left almost a year ago in my beloved Utah, I miss gardening so much!
In these days I live in an apartment, and the fact that all the city smells like jasmine isn't enough to fill the void.
Waiting for some other lawn to mown (for Mr. Kitchenlander, that is), I turn to some other kind of flowers.
Zucchini flower are an instant cheer up when you spot them at the market. You can't resist their color, their delicacy, even the cuteness of those teeny tiny zucchini.
Bring them home, wash them lightly and quickly outside and inside, cut away pistils and set aside.
Cut some little cubes of mozzarella and have some anchovies embrace them and place every paired couple in a flower.
Prepare a batter with flour and beer (or sparkling water, if there are alcohol issues, but keep in mind that cooking makes the alcohol go away).
And pluff the flowers in.
Then deep fry them for a few seconds and you got yourself a nice hors d'oeuvres.
I'm pretty sure Jill can't do that with her flowers, ha!
