Five Foods on Friday 95

Four Foods On Friday 95

This week’s questions are inspired by cold weather where the creator lives. I can’t say that we are suffering the effects of a Nor’easter too, but the temps here have been in the 50’s and it’s even been raining – doubly chilly for us - so I can pretend to empathize:

1. Chicken soup. Regular or creamy?

It has to be creamy. Unless it is the ‘soup’ (broth) from Ramen noodles.

2. Do you have a stew recipe?

I’d rather not have stew. I’m not even all that fond of soup unless it is a specific flavor, like broccoli or tomato – and I like the creamy varieties. I prefer foods with separate flavors and textures. Not chunks of mushy stuff floating around in flavored water.

3. What’s your favorite hot comfort food?

Probably something with rice. I can’t think of one particular food that stands out as a ‘hot favorite comfort food’

4. Do you like chicken fried steak?

Oh yes! But not often, and I don’t like to cook it. Every so often it is a real treat to stop at a place like Cracker Barrel and have some else cook me a chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes – gravy over the both – fried okra, collards with hot sauce, and baked sweet apples. Served with – of course – sweet ice tea. (see why I don’t need this very often?!  :D !)

I've never had chicken fried steak. What is it?

Lydia said...

Oh yum, Cracker Barrel. The best comfort food. And the only place I like okra.

It is so nice to have someone else cook for you, especially when the food is tasty!

Cairo Typ0 - Chicken Fried steak is also know as country fried steak. It is a classic southern dish. You get a piece of cube steak - beat the heck out of it to tenderize it. Slop it in beaten egg, then dredge it in flour. Then fry. Like fried chicken, It's similar to weiner schnitzle(sp?). It most often served with a peppery milk gravy (or less peppery - but I like the pepper) and mashed potatoes go perfect with it!

Ok, what are whale ears?

Connie said...

:D Whale ears are just some of the things that kids wonder about, and what kids wonder about, how they learn, how they see the world, etc. - I knew this would be a big part of my blog. I was wondering myself, about what to name my blog, when I overheard the whale ear conversation. My first post: in the beginning.
