Today is Ellen from 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Readers Friday Fill-Ins. We are participating because we want to! Besides these are fun, fun, fun.
1. I would never be friends with someone who…. IS NEGATIVELY JUDGEMENTAL WITH ANIMALS AND PEEPS. THERE ARE SO MANY SWEET AND KIND FOLKS OUT THERE…WHO NEEDS PEEPS OR ANIMALS RAINING ON MY PARADE. I’D RATHER BE ALONE.
2. I will never refuse…..A TREAT….YOU THOUGHT I WOULD?…NOT LIKELY. I HAVE TO GET THE TREAT BEFORE SHOKO DOES…HEHE WE BOTH LOVE CATNIP GREENIES
Some kitty said they were good for me….I don’t think so….they taste too good.
My turn Kali. K, take it away Shoks.
3. I have never been to…..THAILAND….OR ANYWHERE ELSE OTHER THAN THE VET’S PLACE AND HER PLACE STINKS! , but…..I’D RATHER GO TO THAILAND THAN TO THE VET’S. Cause the vets is the vets! Thailand is where the Siamese originated. Perhaps Kali and I can go on our Magic Carpet one day.
4. When it comes to…..LAZYING IN THE SUN, I …..THINK SUMMER HAS GOT ALL THE SEASONS BEAT.
Aww…summer dirt shine….mol.
We’re sending out special purrs and licks to our good friend Phoebe of 15 and Meowing as she is having a tough time eating right now. Her mom and dad are feeding her every few hours with a syringe. Phoebe, you are being sent the POTP from us. Please join us in sending Phoebe the POTP.
Mom has obtained a secret document from a friend. It was all hush, hush and on a need to know basis. They met in the back lane at midnight….mom scurried home with her treasure before anyone could see her. Except Cow Kitty, who was scooping out new territory for a game of, “Gotcha, You Freak!” Mom came flying in the house and slammed the door. Leaning against it mom told me I’d have to help her because Shoko has a big mouth and this info was top-secret. I, of course, agreed….I was so nosy about this project.
Ta da…. It’s Shopping Around The World today with our host Piglove. This was a real coo on mom’s part. She secured the recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken coating. Yes, those 11 herb and spices that have always been so elusive to discover.
I’m here to help mom. Just call me Colonel Kali. I know the glasses are not the colonels but his glasses are so tacky. Dad used to have a pair like his….no pizazz.
Colonel Sander’s nephew casually revealed to a reporter a recipe that had been passed down in a family scrapbook.
Could this be KFC’s closely guarded secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices? The nephew Joe Ledington, said it is. He claims his job as a kid was to mix this same recipe in large batches.
INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED:
Chicken parts of your choice
2 tbsp. milk
3/4 cup oil
Prepare oil in a cast iron pot to fry. You will need your 3/4 cup of oil. In a bowl, mix 2 cups of flour. 1/3 tbsp of salt, tbsp. of black pepper, 1/2 tbsp of thyme, 1/2 tbsp of basil, 1/3 tbsp of oregano., 1 tbsp of celery salt, 1 tbsp of dried mustard, 4 tbsp of paprika, 1 tbsp of garlic salt.1 tbsp of ground ginger and 1 tbsp of white pepper.
HANDY HINT: 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon
You will notice there are no prices for anything. We are very sorry but mom re-packaged the chicken pieces when we got them like 2 months ago, so if she gave you a price…she’d be lying cause she has no idea what she paid. Most of the herbs and spices were kicking about in the cupboard and the flour has been living here for some time…no bugs though….mom checked. The ingredients for making up the coating. We made up the coating and kept it in a sealed container. If we feel like having homemade KFC one night, we don’t have to mix all the herbs and spices.
In a separate bowl, add 2 tbsp of milk and an egg and whisk. Mix your chicken into the bowl and then coat the flour and spice mixture. We used a bread bag and shook it.
Finally we fried the chicken in the frying pan for 10 to 15 minutes. Looks good mom…kinda dark though. Can you lighten it up a bit? Much better, mom. It looks tasty.
The finished chicken wings and breast. It is a small batch because mom also baked the rest of the chicken.
Bake the chicken in a 350F oven for about 45 minutes. Oh really mom! What happened? The chicken got stuck on the tin foil cause you didn’t use the sliding foil and the wings fell apart when you lifted them out? They don’t look very appetizing. Alright, we’ll throw some parsley on top of them. MOL
