I’ve got a golden nugget.

Ladies and Gentlemen… I bring on to thee…

Chicken-fried, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy!!

Just let that marinate in your mind for a bit.

Okay. Welcome back.

I don’t know if I just thought of this out of the blue one day, or saw it on t.v., but this is one of the best things that has come out of my kitchen.

It’s very simple to make. Unfortunately, I’m not gonna tell you my technique. Sorry, but somethings are meant to be a secret.

I will say, the base of this goodness is easy to do. Just make mashed potatoes, and gravy like you normally would. The frying part is up to you to figure out. I had to. Good luck! 😉

I used chicken stock for my gravy, but you could easily make this vegetarian by using veggie stock. Not only is this treat tasty, but it’s also a conversation starter. There is nothing like watching the look on people’s faces when they bite into this nugget of pure, savory, scrump-didily-umptious-ness!

Shelby comin’ round the mountain…

My first friend post!

Shelby made mac n’ cheese. A family favorite that ANYONE can agree is good no matter how it’s made.

I’ve known Shelby for half my life, but never knew she had culinary skills. She made this dish exactly how I love it. She started out by cooking the pasta. She then made a sauce using American cheese. Not too many people use American cheese, and I HIGHLY salute her for it. She combined the pasta, and sauce in a caserole dish, topped it with cracker crumbs, and cheddar cheese, and baked it. Here it is!

She told me the recipe called for Ritz crackers. She used Saltines. I think that was a smart move. The Saltines, I’m sure, added an extra bit of seasoning; an important step that we sometimes forget.

I’m told the result was AMAZING! Her son, Tony, and her boyfriend, Jose, almost ate it all up before she got to try it herself. Hopefully next time she’ll double the recipe… and save some for me!

Thanks, Shelby!
