We win at potluck

There’s been a lot of turnover in the team that I’m part of at work. Today we are losing a really nice junior tech who is going to start working a different shift at a different office. To see him off, we decided to do a potluck – the unofficial theme is “comfort food”.

Being from the south and of a carnivorous bent, I selected fried chicken. (I would have gone with a chocolate milkshake and grilled cheese sandwich, Cari, but I don’t have a working blender at the moment. Apologies.)

Step 1: Let chicken sit in buttermilk and lemon pepper overnight. Toss in flour, salt, and pepper.


Step 2: Fry (or bake). Bellow “CONFESS!!!” as the chicken goes into the fryer/oven. Cackle maniacally. Serve.


Step 3. Uuurp.

    I’m not a big fried chicken fan (probably because we had it at half the Sunday dinners of my childhood), but that looks pretty yummy….

    I should really try harder not to lick the screen. Now there’s drool all over it and I’ll have to wash it.

    That makes me wish I wasn’t allergic to poultry. Sure; I could lick the screen. But I’d break out in hives. Le Sigh.
