Aunt Barb visited us this weekend and we held a big family dinner at our house in her honor. The menu:
My grandmother's fried chicken (best in the world, forget you pretenders)
Mashed potatoes ( 95-yo Aunt Gee Pronounced them the best ever mashed potatoes--I told her the secret was lots of butter and cream)
Chocolate Malt Cake with Toasted Marshmallow filling---(this cake is to die for)
Grandma's green beans with bacon, ham, and onions, cooked into smithereens.
The rest of the family brought in corn muffins, cauliflower soup,etc.
But this. THIS: One of the cousins brought in a little container of fried chicken from Kroger's and that is what she ate.
I could not believe it. She knew I was making my grandmother's fried chicken.
Everyone went on and on and on and on how amazing it was to have real old-fashioned fried chicken as their grandmothers had done it.
Cousin ate her Kroger fried chicken and would not even taste mine.
I am insulted.
Is there any reason why I should not be?
