Since I’ve been slacking so much lately when it comes to new posts I actually thought about skipping my usual top posts of the year summary that I always do towards the end of December — not because I was too lazy to do it, but because I figured there wouldn’t even be ten decent posts that were worthy of mentioning again.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m aware that I definitely wrote more than ten posts total over the course of the last 52 weeks, but until I actually took a look back through them I guess I didn’t realize just how many ridiculous, quality things I cooked this year.
The top post of the year — which was actually no surprise to me since the video I made for it is up to over 6 million views on Facebook — was a sponsored post I did for Foodbeast.com and Pabst where I took a Reuben sandwich, battered it in Pabst beer batter and deep fried it. I was actually asked to do something else for them for National Pizza Month back in October but again, my laziness got the best of me and I never got around to it,
Not only was the #1 post of the year deep fried, but it turns out that 8 out of the top 10 most popular posts were deep fried, which sounds a little crazy at first, but the more that I thought about it it actually sounds about right since in real life 8 out of every 10 things I eat are usually deep fried.
