After the tires were on, we decided to go out to lunch at KFC. We hadn't been there in over a year, so it was a bit of a treat. Yum!! We usually go out several times a week, but somehow we always forget about Kentucky Fried Chicken.
As we sat in the restaurant, it brought back memories of when the children were little, and how we would all go to KFC with friends after church. We were an Air Force family, so we've eaten fried chicken all over the USA.
I would also eat at a fantastic KFC, several years ago, while visiting my mother in East Tennessee. It served everything buffet style--pinto beans, green beans, turnip greens, yams, mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken livers, cold slaw, baked beans, corn on the cob, and of course, fried chicken. They served much of the same food I was raised on and it was wonderful.
In the KFC here, we have only the basics--not that good, rich, southern fare that I so love and crave. But Jim and I did have a good time talking about the good old days and fried chicken memories.
