Chicken Every Sunday

Back in 1949 there was a movie called Chicken Every Sunday. I've never seen the move or even read the book, but I think the premise of the title was that times were tough in this particular family and since chicken was the cheapest thing to cook, it was the meal that was eaten most often.

All that being said, I remember my mom frying chicken for Sunday dinner and I'm sure some of you do too. Today is Sunday and my hubby suggested a quick trip to KFC to try the new grilled chicken. We got two 2 piece breast meals with potatoes and gravy and mac and cheese. No drinks, no extras. It was $17.80. In my book that is almost $20.00 and that's not a cheap meal for two people. It was very good, the chicken was cooked perfectly and the side dishes were yummy. We did get the extra chicken breasts so we could top a quick salad with chicken tonight and that way I don't have to cook today. That works for me. Still eighteen bucks for 2 dinners is too much.

I have been very busy with polymer clay this week and have several cute pieces to post and I got some goodies in the mail that I want to share with you later this week.

So in the mean time, have a great Sunday and an even better Labor Day and look for me on Tuesday with some fun things to show.

Yes, I remember "back in the day" when after church we would all pile in at Granny's house along with neighbors and sometimes strangers for the fried chicken Sunday dinner. This was not an occasional occurrence, this happened at someones house every Sunday. Today we swing through the drive through to sit in front of the TV God to watch the game. We rarely get together with kin. Progress....who knew. Ya'll have a blessed week!!!

Yep growin' up, we ate a lot of chicken. :> )
A few weeks back, we had KFC for the first time in about nine years. The last time we went there, I was given a green piece of chicken and it was not St. Patrick's Day.
