My husband bought me this buffet server today. It was unbelievably cheap at Target this week. My first thought when I got this was the last potluck dinner we had at work without enough equipment to keep our food warm. I also found this cool cooktop for about 12 bucks (I love the feeling of finding a bargain). I already own a small 4 quart nesco roaster oven and recently purchased a crockpot versaware but this buffet server is great and it serves also as a warming plate. Just in time for Thanksgiving!!!!! If I can get all the girls at work to purchase one of these, then our potluck problems are solved!

Election Day Fried Chicken

Never have I seen such an exciting election day. I was in the mood for an American Favorite.Fried Chicken. I use my iron dutch oven that I have had for about 10 years now. Absolutely perfect for frying chicken. This pot is my chicken fryer. I cleaned the wings, legs, thighs and breasts. If the thighs and breasts were too large, I used a cleaver to cut them in half for faster cooking. The seasoning usually consists of seasoned salt, and pepper and I add a bit of cornmeal to my flour. The seasoning goes into the flour as opposed to the chicken itself. The chicken must be patted dry before dredging. I let them cook for about 8-10 minutes per batch. Each batch contains about 5-6 medium-small pieces. Fry the until they are golden brown and floating in the oil. MMMMmmmmmmmmmm MMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm. Fried Chicken!

Light Meal!

Today I wanted dinner to be on the light side so we went with fish. We grilled grouper fillets and asparagus spears. The grouper and asparagus were seasoned with seasoned salt black pepper and red pepper flakes. We then sprayed them lightly with olive oil cooking spray and grilled for about 5 minutes on each side for the fish and five minutes for the asparagus if frozen and ten minutes if fresh. With that, iced tea and a light and healthy meal is served!!!!!!!!!!!!
