these foods fill you up so fast, though, you know? then the other people in my family devour it all before i get a chance to have more later on half the time.
Luvs, My mom used to make a dish she called city chicken. I've asked for the recipe but, she can't remember making it or what was in it. Do you have a recipe that you could post. I remember really loving it as a kid.

Thanks, Trish

pdswfe,
they have a pre-packaged city chicken meat in the grocery store. it's veal and pork cubes with little sticks. but my Dad just uses country (pork) ribs. you soak wooden mini-skewers, then cut the fat from the ribs, cube the meat (about 1"x1"), thread about 4 cubes onto each skewer, dip it into slightly beaten egg, then in seasoned cracker meal. shallow fry till nice and golden brown, drain on paper towels, and lightly salt immediately.

i saw them on tv last night using ground meat. i don't know about that.... they didn't look very good.

My top three comfort foods...

vanilla ice cream,
warm chocolate pudding
and
almost any type of warm home made soup. Chicken noodle is the best.

I used to love those! I'd order it with out the nuts and have them add extra fudge though.. so I guess, I really love hot fudge.

Dad and I used to order hot fudge sundaes with out ice cream too. Chocolate is so good. Think I was 13 the last time I did that.

LOL! Pds, the middle school I went to was 150 feet from a Dairy Queen! We ravaged that place! We could see the employees go into panic mode from the second floor when the school bell rang! I also miss Snicker's Blizzards. 8)
