I've been terrible about keeping my blog up to date. I should try much harder to post more often!
But in my defense, my mom and I've been knee deep in dirt and mulch,tidying up the flower bed and planning the vegetable garden.
Today I made good old fried chicken and a hush puppy bake. After polling some sweet ladies on facebook, I've decided to serve the hush puppy bake with honey butter and have some pepper jelly on hand as well for those of us who can take a little sweet heat lol.
My fried chicken is simple . Soak the chicken in buttermilk and pepper overnight. The next day dredge it in flour mixed with a healthy dose of shallot pepper,black pepper and salt . Then I fry it in crisco..yes I said crisco..(moderation is the key to enjoying life lol)....for 8 to ten minutes each side so it's golden. Then I pop the chicken on a foil lined cookie sheet in a 350 oven for 20 minutes. I like to make sure it's cooked all the way through! Then I salt it while it's hot and serve it up with whatever sides I have planned for the day.
Now.....All I have to do is whip up some lemonade,brew some sweet tea and pull out the rest of the Kentucky pie I made last night. A great Sunday supper for a sunny spring day!
