I am in advanced middle age and
the old tum is starting to act up, but I must confess I share a love of fried chicken and lots of cream
with you. Must have been my travels in the Deep South.
Fried chicken and collard greens, yeah. And lots of cream.
I have heard it said that people who write about food all the time are probably gay, but I like to think of myself as coarse hominy.
LOL. I loooove fried chicken, but I've never been able to make it. My mom makes fantastic fried chicken.
I'm starting another diet today. I'm hungry.
I wonder if women can get away with writing about food because we're women and that's our "thing."
I just like cooking and eating. Especially the eating.
Did I mention that I'm hungry?
So much in common.
I like to think of myself as a master cook.
My kids came down for dinner the other day.
Think I overloaded them.
97 lb daughter trying to finish 97 lb steak.
160 lb son trying to demolish a half-chicken.
Just to do a one-eighty:
I have heard it said that mental blocks in writing can be cured--and fast-- by a steak dinner.
No better authority than the late and great H. L. Mencken, the Sage of Baltimore.
Ein prosit, Henry!
Guess I'd better brush the snow off the grill!
