Chicken Fried

STINK! I’d typed this all out and lost it all…  Anyway, husband has been very excited to finally try fried chicken.  He searched YouTub high and low for just the right video recipe, and we soaked the drumsticks overnight in buttermilk.

He’s usually very serious when he first starts, and I only get to start taking photos once he’s gotten into his cooking groove.

I was in charge of important things, like wine & appetizer platter, putting the Zac Brown Band song Chicken Fried on the radio, and then documenting the whole awesome ordeal.

I’m loving Sunday evenings when we are both home & sprawled out across our enormous island.  I’m usually on my laptop, furiously working on photos or catching up on emails.

Unfortunately, the fried chicken and mashed potatoes didn’t quite come out as planned, but we still ate a lovely meal.  I really enjoy watching how excited he gets as he learns his way around the kitchen and tackles a new meal each week.  Now we know that frying foods make a huge mess and adding extra milk to the potatoes makes them a dog meal.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: The crazy has started around here & I’m kicking busy into high gear.
