Day 335: Kentucky Fried


Let me start with an apology. I failed to upload a blog yesterday. So, I am instead backdating this blog. I was getting a factory reset on my phone and doing some interior design work (AKA hanging frames).

I wish I could say that I was too busy being pranked and pulling the wool over my friends, but honestly, I’m really boring on April Fool’s Day.

Now to the good stuff! My husband might just be the best there is! He made fried chicken and the breaded fried part was perfect!! Those of you who make real fried chicken know what I’m talking about. Crisp crunchy outside, perfectly cooked interior and not that inch thick breading you get on the unmentioned KY food chain.

He made supper while I was in town and of course, when I asked him, he said he would never give up his secret recipe. Don’t worry fellow eaters, I’ll get it from him.

I swear that one of the true tricks to cooking fried chicken is the cast iron skillet. So, so yummy. He also made garlicky mashed potatoes.

Day 279: Florence


Not sure why I put off driving past Florence, Kentucky for so long. What a treat! Apparently this water tower addage is a huge embarrassment to the residents of Florence. To me, it just reflects the our old state catch phrase,”Kentucky. We’re just that friendly.” A little creepy and a whole lotta southern.

I must say that Unbridled Spirit is a little bit cooler for a state that is known for its horses and racing. Outside of the U.S. do they know us for our horses, corevettes, and bourbon? Doubtful.

My brief conversations in Costa Rica often included the response, “oh! Kentucky Fried Chicken!” Thanks, Colonel.
I need to visit the home of the first KFC someday. Corbin, KY, for those of you who are interested.
