Breakfast was delicious.  Plain Chobani greek yogurt, 1 tsp. agave nectar, 1.5 ounces of Sophia’s granola (almost gone!) and 1/2 cup diced apple.

But then an impromptu lunch, and any sort of game plan for the day went out the window!

I ate 3/4 of this and half the fries!

So while I had fried chicken on the menu for dinner, it was meant to be on a day that I had a healthy breakfast and lunch!  But the chicken was already defrosted so I had to go ahead with it.

I saw on Cathy’s site on Noble Pig the other day that she made Paula Deen’s version of fried chicken.  And when you store’s sale flyer had cut up whole chicken for .79 cents a pound, that sealed the deal!

You salt and pepper the chicken all day.

And then I tossed the chicken in flour while the deep fryer heated up.  It was only then that I realized I forgot to dip the chicken in the egg/milk wash!  So I floured, then dipped and floured the chicken again.

Cathy cooked hers in a dutch oven.  I did mine in our deep fryer for 14 minutes and it came out perfect!

I may have put Frank’s hout sauce on mine!

I had a wing and a breast with 1/2 cup mashed potatoes.

And when Hannah got home, I made her chicken fingers – she’s not a huge fan of chicken on the bone!

So here’s to another day of trying to make better choices!

  • drink water
  • eat healthy all 3 meals
  • exercise!

Oh, I forgot to tell you!!  Tonight I am going to a cooking demonstration at Williams-Sonoma!!   It is a 2 hour class – from 6:00 to 8:00 and the subject??  How to make homemade pasta!   On the menu:  lemon basil pasta, spinach ravioli and gnocchi with tomato sauce!    Good thing I have American Idol and Biggest Loser on the DVR! 😀

Here’s to another day – let’s all try to make it a good one! 😀
