Since Kentucky Derby Day also fell on the same day as Cinco de Mayo this year, we were in a quandary. Our traditional Derby Day meal (since we like watching all the pre-Derby frou-frou stuff) has simply been KFC takeout - lol! I gave hubby the option of a Cinco de Mayo feast or KFC, & wanted to stick with KFC & put off the Mex meal for today or tomorrow. So that's what we did.

Nothing like sitting with a hot bucket of chicken, some good sides (flaky biscuits, cole slaw, mac & cheese, mashed potatoes & gravy), while watching a FABULOUS last-minute Derby-winning upset. :)

We went way Down South a couple days ago for a family reunion of sorts. On Saturday, a whole bunch of us went to a seafood place that served deep fried everything! We had deep fried: green beans, okra, sour pickles, clam strips, catfish, oysters, scallops, shrimp, hushpuppies, crabcake, along with creamy coleslaw and vinegar coleslaw that set your teeth on edge. And a whole lot of other stuff. They kept bringing the bowls! I need a gallbladder transplant.

Well, I had too many chores to do to don a proper Derby chapeau, but I WAS wearing my ever-present cotton bandana to keep my hair at bay while working. That'll HAVE to count - lol!!
