Week 14 Sunday (4/13/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Fried Chicken
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl

I figured out that there are 315 calories per serving, if 4 oz. boneless, skinless breasts are used.  (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I used to love fried chicken.  At all picnics we served Colonel Sander’s or Brown’s Fried Chicken. Once I started dieting in my twenties, I stopped eating fried chicken and began eating baked. This fried chicken was very good. Unfortunately for me, my system cannot handle fried food anymore. I knew this going in to cooking this recipe, but I vowed to try every recipe and I meant it. This was so delicious and crispy. If I could eat fried food, this one would definitely be on my list.  Kids would love this chicken because of the crunch!

Trivial Triffles              

         On my many trips to Sandwich, I drove by this house and actually had to pull over and take a closer look.  Lined up in front of the house was a row of sleds. They were spaced out and leaning across the front brick.

         I loved them because they were type of wooden sleds that I grew up using. They gave me such joy to see them.  I actually pulled in the driveway to take a picture, braving the Beware of Dog sign. This was a true blast from the past.

Memory Musings      

         As I was on one of my many trips to the Sandwich Vet, I decided to take a different route. This time I decided to drive straight down Rt. 47 going south. I came upon a house that brought back a happy memory.  This house, on the left side of the road, has a home with a large pond on the property. The best part was that the pond usually had a beautiful swan enjoying the water and bank. As a child, I loved the idea of having your own pond but the added bonus was the swan. It was almost fairytale like for me. Sometimes I love driving different routes because it brings a moment of great happiness.
