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
The Cat On My Head is hosting the Selfie blog hop and it was my turn to show my stuff. hehe I sound so risqué.
KALI…..ORANGE Mom has probably told you my food allergy has been acting up again. I’ve been scratching my neck until there is a humongous bare spot on my neck. Mom’s solution, tie Shoko’s bandana from Cat Scouts around my neck. She also put me on hypoallergenic wet food. OMC….it’s the most disgusting food I’ve ever tasted! Mom has discovered a way to get me to eat some though. Now get this my buddies……she spoon feeds me. MOL I have to put something in my mouth or I’d laugh myself silly.
See the black stuff at the corner of my eyes. This is worse when my food allergy is acting up.

Whoa, it’s getting right chilly up here. I don’t feel like wandering around very much. Not unless mom comes with me.
Kali and morphine do not agree. She is off of the med and is eating again. She doesn’t seem to be limping as badly as when she was on it. We want to find a med that is more natural to her body. I’m holding onto this bag….it smells like cheese and…..and BEEF. MOL
While Kali was protecting an empty bag. I decided to play Shokzilla in my hideaway.
Soon the attack moved out and inside my mouth! I got ya, suckeh…you’s all mine! You pink terror. I was movin’ so fast that the camera went blurry. Gotcha! Shokzilla strikes again.
Now, to mellow out watching my favourite show, “The Big Bang Theory.” I sure can relate to Sheldon…he should get more respect. I don’t think he’s demanding, do you?
What happened….no picture! MOM! What did you do? Pull yourself together….you have a cold…that’s it. Now where’s the picture of moi watching my show…awww….better. May the hands of time be welded together and you never age my friend.
We got two parcels from the mail lady. Not one but two parcels. The first parcel was addressed to Kali and I. What the…? Mom pulled out this blue thing and then she said we’d won it. I remember, it was a contest on Three Chatty Cats. Mom didn’t take a picture of this Filtration System we had won. She couldn’t wait to see how it would work in our big water bowl out on the deck and if we’d try it out or sneak up on it.
I hung back, just in case there was something wrong with it. I’m not having my furs frazzled because of a short-circuit I heard Cow Kitty talkin’ bout his dad getting a shock from his electric razor. Kali was the first to try the new system. I give it the Kali stamp of approval. The little bubbles it produces tickle my nose.
Well, if Kali can do it without a problem then so can I. The water looks ok…..no sparks flying out. I see the ripples, this water looks so cool and refreshing. I can even stick my paws in and the ripples feel good. I like this blue thing.
Thank you so much Three Chatty Cats.
Our second parcel was from….the Tooth Fairy?? What the heck…the Tooth Fairy is alive and well and living in the US? I’ll be bald-headed!! I would never have guessed. Look at the toys…just for me. I got dibs on the ice cream cone Shoks. Oh, alright Kali but I get the drumstick. That little Blue sucker looks like fun to roll. MOL This ice cream cone is so soft on my mouth. I have my drumstick in here and will beat it up….alone.
First I must thank the Tooth Fairy for the extra goodies. You are the best. *wink* *wink*
May your dentist need his tooth pulled! MOL
Wouldn’t you know it. Son of a seacat. Kali was flaked out in her basket with a big smile on her face. I was on my condo chattering at the crows. Kali disappeared and I figured mom was giving Kali a once over like she does every now and then. Mom came back and blabbed at me, picked me up and put me in my little cardboard box. Kali and I were then whipped off to the vets. Well Kali was some upset and let mom know it in no uncertain mews. She was swearing at mom in cat mews. I’ve never heard Kali swear but she did and let me tell you, she came up with some meows that I hadn’t heard before. Actually I don’t know why Kali came to the vets with us. The vet looked Kali over, took her temperature…..Kali then swore at the vet. Then she went back in her carrier. Perhaps she was suppose to keep me company and instead taught me swear words. I on the other paw was subjected to a thorough exam. Mom was chattering away like she was talking to crows and the vet was chattering back. I then got a horrendous jab in my hip and one in my leg. What a sadist! Those drugs were going to kill me,my fur was standing on end. Then this terrible pill that was forced down my throat….no talking or cooing, just shoved in my mouth. I was shocked by such crude behaviour so the pill slid down my throat before I could scream at the vet.
Dr. Jamieson wasn’t our pet physician or Kali would have enjoyed seeing him. She has a crush on him but she won’t admit it. Mom forgot the camera and we had to re-post old pictures.
We came home and I told Kali about my fears of passing from this nip haven, she smacked me on the head and told me I had the same shots last year. Oh yea. I forgot. Guess I’m going to be sticking around for awhile.
