i basically watched high school musical as a psychic prediction of my high school life. I was going to attend high school, be super smart, inherently be a fantastic singer, meet a perfect boy, have perfect friends and most importantly; sing in the hallways.
So it hasn't exactly turned out like that. and yet I'm super happy!
I never woulda thought that I'd go to an all girls school. a private school. an all girls private school in hawaii, and be so so happy!
yet here I am, beyond excited and loving my life, and I find out we're moving. yep. This June, I shall be leaving my home here and starting over somewhere new. granted I'm super upset but something new will be good. I'll be going to a co-ed school this time. with boys. and no uniform. I have to wake up in the morning and actually care. oh my.
What more to calm my nerves than fried pickle chips. wait, no. Deep fried foods to make me fatter and give me pimples? no. that will not calm my nerves. So how about some skinny "fried" pickle chips with wasabi "mayo". Super healthy? Super delish?
Okay. consider my nerves calmed and my stomach quieted.Skinny Fried Pickle Chips makes four servings

4 TBSP ap flour
1 1/2 cups italian seasoned panko

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and grease a small cookie sheet with Pam.
Beat the egg with the milk in a small bowl until combined.
Place the 4 TBSP of flour in a large bowl and the panko in a smaller bowl. [don't worry, just run the dishwasher later]
Dry the pickle chips with paper towels and set aside.
Toss the pickles in the flour all together, getting all the sides covered real well.
Dip the pickles, a few at a time in the egg, let the excess drip off and press into the panko. Press super hard and don't forget the edges. Place on the cookie sheet and repeat. It'll be super quick, I promise.
Grease the tops of the pickle chips real well with Pam.
