National Fried Chicken Day – Oh Have Mercy!

06 Jul

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world! 


 July 6th 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!

    Oh, my now you have my mouth watering and I just might have to get out in the heat and go get some fried chicken. We don’t have a Popeye’s in our area. Mumsy used to eat there when she went in to the big city but she never goes there any more. We hope you all got to enjoy some fried chicken. Hugs and snout kisses

      It was definitely a fried chicken kind of night. We compromised and went to a place called Chick-Fil-A. It was awesome. Mom brought me home an ice cream XOXO – Bacon

    I admit I loved cold fried chicken – – living gluten free means none for me.

    While we were waiting at the hospital Thursday, my sister’s boyfriend brought us all some chicken finger meals from Raising Cane’s, which I’d never had before but had heard about them. I have to say I was disappointed in how bland they tasted… it was like the fried chicken tenders I make at home, only I douse mine with a liberal dose of seasoned salt. My sister also mentioned it was Fried Chicken Day, but I wasn’t going to believe it until I heard it from Rocky himself…

      Oh my evil friend – I hope everything is okay with your family. And you are right – If it comes from Rocky on the internet, it just *has* to be true. Snorts with piggy laughter. And how disappointing in bland chicken fingers. What are these peeps thinking? BAM! those flavors up! XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
