Sunday at Rose Cottage


I woke up this morning wanting some of my granny’s fried chicken. That isn’t happening since she died in 1982. I have never eat fried chicken like my Momma Tom. I loved to go to her house. My Daddy Tom played endlessly with me outside. Then we would go in, Momma Tom would bathe me in a wash tub (they didnt have a bath tub) with Dove soap and then Daddy Tom and I would sit in the “sitting room” and look at National Geographic while she cooked us up some grub. If I got hungry before meal time she would put a piece of white bread on a saucer and pour some fig preserves over it. Delish! So…anywho. I am frying chicken today. I decided to buy pieces since no one eats the thighs and boney pieces. But I didnt want “chicken tenders” or “strips”. I want a real honest to goodness piece or two of fried chicken. Buttermilk battered, golden brown. With rice and gravy, some fresh corn on the cob and some homemade rolls. I know my owing recipes is getting tiresome, but I really am going to catch up. Think I might post a chicken fryin’ tutorial tomorrow. Rachel (if she gets through with Harry PotterÜ) will do the photos for me. For dessert I will whip up a “from scratch” coconut cream pie. But before all that cooking starts…I will get my dough for my rolls made and then Husband and I are finally going to watch Miss Potter together. I have seen it. But wanted to share it with him.

Have a great Sunday and eat something good!

Sounds like a delicious meal! I wish we could get good corn on the cob over here, but what they sell for corn on the cob here is what went for cow corn back home! UGH! I love the movie Miss Potter. (especially since we spent our holidays last year in the Lake District) I saw the movie three times at the cinema and then I bought the DVD and have watched it twice at home, and just recently when we flew over to my mom’s in Canada for a couple of weeks guess what the movie was they were showing on the flight over???? You guess it, Miss Potter!!!!! I was a happy bunny to be sure! Looking forward to the fried chicken tutorial!

sounds like a good meal. yum.
