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!
