Friday Tip: National Fried Chicken Day!

I was watching the Today Show this morning and I learned something.  Apparently today is National Fried Chicken Day. To think that "they" (whoever "they" are) had the wisdom to create a holiday to honor my favorite childhood food.

I can tell my life's story through my experiences with fried chicken.

As a kid, I liked Kentucky Fried Chicken and Church's Chicken. When I went to LA in 2001, I had to try Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles

I really enjoyed my fried chicken.  However, I haven't had it since I was pregnant and craved it constantly.  My tastes have changed. I am more of a sushi girl.  Don't judge me... Also, I realized that eating fried chicken regular isn't good for my waistline.  That being said, sometimes I think about my mom's fried chicken and it makes me smile.

When my sister and I were little, we would have picnics in Highland Park in Rochester, New York.  She used to make fried chicken and potato salad and bake a Sara Lee Apple Pie.  We would go to the park after church, eat our lunch and roll down the hill.  Those were good times!

She hasn't made fried chicken in a really long time.  I hope that you celebrate National Fried Chicken Day in your own way!
