Food Friday: Y'all Come Back Now

On Tuesday, I was in a mood to fry some chicken.  If you're going to have fried chicken, then you might as well fix up a whole Southern-style supper, so we also had sliced tomatoes, cole slaw, macaroni and cheese, and corn muffins.
I learned to fry chicken the old-fashioned way, by watching a master at work, so I can't really post a recipe.  But it is the best fried chicken ever and I will teach anyone who wants to learn.  So come on over and I'll show you how to fry up a mess of chicken.  Mac and cheese is another one of those recipes that I can't explain; when you come over to make fried chicken, I'll teach you that as well.  I've posted my corn muffin recipe before (this post has the recipe for cornbread and cornbread dressing…two for one on that deal), and the cole slaw recipe is plenty easy to stir up. 

Buttermilk Cole Slaw
•    1 cup mayonnaise
•    ½  cup buttermilk
•    1 teaspoon white sugar
•    ½ teaspoon celery seed
•    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
•    1 teaspoon hot sauce (I use Frank's Red Hot)
•    1 (16 ounce) package shredded coleslaw mix

In a large bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, sugar, celery seed and black pepper. Fold in the coleslaw mix, and refrigerate until serving. This tastes best if it is refrigerated for a few hours before serving.

After y'all sit down to eat this supper, you'll be as full as a tick.  And that's a good thing.

You are making me want to go to the gym just looking at the photos! Wow. Why on earth are you single?? My husband would run off with Rachael Ray just for her food. Oh, the saying says a way to a MAN's heart is through his stomach. So not true. I might marry you if the fried chicken is good enough! That's what you should call it: fried chicken that'll turn you gay. Post it on one of those recipe sharing websites. I bet you'd get a lot of hits.
