Okay, okay. Right. Mozzarella sticks, American restaurant chain, yum, good, everyone loves them, blah blah blah.
Please, listen. You haven’t tried fried mozzarella sticks until you’ve made them yourself at home, and you haven’t tried fried mozzarella sticks until you’ve made these fried mozzarella sticks. The Marlboro man loves mozzarella sticks from American chain restaurants (he’s so easy to get along with)… and last night he proclaimed these to be the best he’s ever had. Then he gave me the key to his heart. Then he said he would claim the key if I didn’t make them every day for the rest of his life.
Awww, just kidding. He said weekly!
