I want to come have dinner at YOUR house! Why oh why can't we be neighbors?


I made chicken thighs (deboned by moi) last night too!


Yum. I love fried chicken but because of certain dietary reasons I`m using only the fillets. No skin allowed. So to retain the crispyness I first vigorously fry in in generous amount of oil (the outside becomes crisp but inside is still raw), then put it in the oven (not microwave) for 20 minutes (even 120 degrees will do) without greasing the pan and voila - it retains its crispiness and all the visible fat is left on the pan.


I love that fat free half and half. It really tastes pretty much the same, and of course still has calories, but NO FAT! Its great!

You know I roomed with a girl once from Pennsylvania who had never heard of biscuits and gravy. The whole white gravy thing was foreign to her too. What is this world coming to!?


That looks really sublime!!


Kyleen--Anytime you're passing thru--just yell! I'll even give you the Brad Pitt tour. :-)

Jeff--Great minds think alike!

Tinkala--Great idea--kind of same song, second verse.

Rachel--I agree. You can't tell the difference so it's the perfect sub! And yes, it's one of those north/south things that makes me laugh when you have friends who say "Huh?" I had Canadian roomates in college so we played that game all the time. It was fun. "Okra? What's okra?"

Pamela--Thank you!


I was told by someone (of course I don't remember who) that fat-free half and half didn't thicken for gravy. So I don't buy it. But you make gravy with it - does it thicken like regular? Think of the calories I'd save! We had chicken/mashed potatoes/cream gravy tonight. And I make biscuits and gravy at least once a week.


Oh man!!!!! I'm drooling here. The chicken, mashed potatoes--and gravy??? I'm a goner. I'm sure that cured you.


Cyndi--I'd never heard that. Maybe that's why it turned out for me! I had no problems at all so I don't know what they're talking about. I just used it like I would have used cream or milk and it was fine...shrug?

Sher--I'm sure it was! LOL!
