National Fried Chicken Day – Oh Have Mercy!

06 Jul

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world! 


 July 6 is National Fried Chicken Day.  On this day, enjoy your crispy, tasty, finger licking good fried chicken.  Fried chicken has got be one of America’s favorite meals.  You know right up there with apple pie!  And you know what?  Fried chicken is good hot or cold right out of the refrigerator.

We all know that fried foods aren’t good for us but every once in a while, you just have to splurge on some great chicken. And today, I *had* to mention this national holiday because Bacon’s mom is a huge fan.  No, let me change that.  Bacon’s mom is a ginormous fan of the fried chicken.  And yes, even the little booger Bacon likes his share as well.  It’s tasty – however you get it.

And the good thing about fried chicken is that it comes in many different forms.  Almost everyone thinks that their recipe is the best recipe.  You have KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) when it was really KFC – not this newer lighter better for you version they are putting out there.  Heck, that’s another news update for another time!   You also have Church’s which is really good.  Their pieces of chicken are huge and oh so wonderful.  And, you even have a place called Bojangles that has really good fried chicken.

Then, you have Bacon’s parents favorite chicken – Popeyes.  You can get it either spicy or mild.  Mom likes it mild and dad likes it spicy.  That Bacon, he eats it either way.  Look at that picture of the chicken.  Doesn’t that fried chicken look just about next to perfect?  Can you tell that we are from the south and we adore chicken??

So, on this day – you enjoy some fried chicken from your favorite place – even if it’s your own kitchen.  I am totally sure they will be having Popeyes at the Hotel Thompson!

    My Mom makes fried chicken for my Dad and calls it “Kentucky Fried Chicken” because she was born in Kentucky so if she’s frying it – it must be Kentucky fried right? HAHAHAHAHA I think that’s cheating but I have to admit, hers is better than KFC!!! Happy Fried Chicken Day…

    Hugs, Sammy

    Woohoo! Fried chicken is the majority of my diet! I still like KFC, but they no longer have any good deals on meals, so they don’t get my business anymore. Popeye’s abandoned our town about 15 years ago because it was poorly run and got a lot of complaints… so I gotta travel over 10 miles to get that good stuff. That leaves Church’s, which moved back into town 8 years ago, and fills my belly usually once a week!

    And of course, I can make my own as well! From scratch! With milk, eggs, and flour even!

      Snorts. I thought you might like this day my friend. You and my mom have this in common. That woman breathes and crows like a chicken – well that’s what daddy says – snorts.
      Mom likes Church’s too – especially their wing pieces. 🙂
      Eat more chicken! XOXO – Bacon

        Oh yes! No skimpy little wings at Church’s like the other places! Their chickens are on steroids!

      Really? Mommy is giving it up for 80 days. Can you believe that? Feel for me. It’s going to be rough here at the Hotel Thompson for several months. XOXO – Bacon
