Tonight, we are going to our club's annual BBQ. Menu will be BBQ Chicken, Pulled Pork, Cowboy Beans, Super Fresh COTB...and other fixin's too. So, I decided to use up some leftovers for lunch today. I made a quick, no-cook pasta sauce and salad. I used the rest of the ricotta cheese from yesterday's lasagna, added chopped roasted red peppers (from a jar), butter, parm, salt, pepper...I should have tossed in a pinch of red pepper flakes (next time)...put that in a bowl to warm over the pot of water that was coming to temp to cook some thin spaghetti. It was a quick, easy and good meal...okay, it isn't dinner, but I offer the picture in case it inspires someone else today!

Ginny, tonight will be lasagna night here, made with fresh cherry tomatoes, overspiced just a little to ballance with the cottage cheese and noodles. Or rather, I'll be using flat lasagna noodles, cooked until soft enough to work wth., to make canoli, with freshly grated Parmegian Regiano on top, same meat sauce with ground beef, and Italian sausage. I'll have pictures.

Tried a different recipe for tenders tonight. Supposedly the KFC recipe. I don't know KFC that well but I figured it should taste pretty good. It did.

SO wanted to know what I could do about the coating falling off the chicken when she used a knife and fork. I told her she's not supposed to use a knife and fork and demonstrated the proper finger technique.

Must have been in a fog. Started eating without taking a picture.

chicken must be dry, dipped in seasoned flour, then egg wash. hake off excess and let sit on a wire rack for about ten minutes. dip in egg wash, and let it saturate the first coat of flour. Dredge in seasoned flour. Again shake off excess flour and rest on wire rack for ten minutes. Fry at 365' in oil until golden. Remove to a wire rack to let any excess oil drip off. And as you said, eat with fingers.

I just purchased the Marion Kay chicken seasoning. It's supposed to be the Colonel's original recipe that was changed by the KFC franchise. i remember the original. it was better than what's served now, IMHO. I'm looking forward to it arriving soon.

Himself grilled the last four burgers from the freezer and the other four ears of corn that I bought yesterday. Worst. Corn. Ever. We have bought corn from the farm one town over for a number of years now. I know farmers are finding growing this year to be tough, but I don't want my $1 an ear corn (6/$5) to be tough, too. Especially when we've had some fine tasty and tender corn from the grocery store. The rest of supper was good, though. The potato salad was leftover from a couple days ago, a recipe Himself liked. The melon is sweet and juicy. The burgers were done perfectly. Himself had grilled onion, Gochujan, and American cheese. I dolled mine up with mayo, lettuce, a thick slab of tomato, sauteed mushrooms, and Swiss cheese.

I didn't feel like cooking, so we ordered hamburgers. We enjoyed them.
