First, the chicken.
Every now and again, I want Fried chicken, simple style. And then I dip it in Country Sweet sauce and I'm SO HAPPY.
And this is easy, and I use olive oil, that's my nod toward healthy options, and I love it.
All you're going to do is COAT the chicken with the flour/spice mix and fry it.
Honestly, that is it.
Cut up some skinless, boneless chicken breasts into wedge-sized pieces. Dredge in seasoned flour:
Granulated garlic or garlic salt/powder
For every 1 cup of flour, add 1 teaspoon of each seasoning and a tablespoon of sugar.
Dip the boneless pieces of chicken in the flour. Heat a skillet with enough olive oil to cover the bottom. Fry until done over low-medium/low heat.
Gosh, I know I could bake it. I know I could do lots of things. But what on earth do I have two big Revere Ware Chicken Fryers for, if I never, ever fry chicken? :)
And then I dip it in Boss Sauce or Country Sweet, or any sauce of your choosing.
So simple is "in" this week and next because I'm doing much-needed edits and we're painting the living room because Dave is, well....
There is nothing about this picture conducive to farming or splitting wood, so he's stuck inside, and this room has been begging for paint, love and attention for about three years... it's finally getting its wish!
Ceiling is done, and we're working on walls and woodwork.... Um, woodwork varnish is seeping through the very pretty paint I bought at Lowes so now I must go back and get Kilz Primer to seal the wood and keep the ancient varnish from bleeding through...
They are 6" x 24" fluorescent lights and it's not like I can just stick another light fixture in there... because (SHOCKER!!!!) most interior lights are not done in 6" x 24" HOLES.
But the ceiling looks great and baseball season started! These are good things!
And this is the window that I'm painting white with yellow trim. Yes, I'm painting the woodwork, and could I have refinished it?
If I wanted to spend days and weeks working with caustic chemicals. I'd rather have sunny yellow, gorgeous trim. More pics when we're further along...
And then there's this...
Magdalena "Lena" Ruth, six months old, with her mama's smile! I can't even!!!! Who needs food when you have BABIES in the house???
Love, love, love!
And if you happen to see ANY ONE OF THESE:
At your local bookstores, department stores or online.... Yes, I'd love for you to buy them, and then tell me what you think!
Because what you think really matters to me.
