Foul Fowl

October 20, 2009

For those of you keeping track, there was no Chicken Monday post last week.  The reason is because the meal was a total flop and I was too disappointed to write about it.  Deviating from the standard plan, Andrew and I decided to purchase some fried chicken for the chicken portion of the meal.  I can not make really good fried chicken and the deli down the road does, so we decided Andrew would pick up the chicken on the way home from work and I would furnish the sides for the meal.

At first, I was not looking forward to this meal.  I had all but crossed fried anything off of my “to eat” list recently and I was having a major guilt trip about it.  Then, as I started to imagine eating the fried chicken, with its unmistakably greasy, crunchy exterior and savory, juicy interior, I began – ever so slightly – to salivate.  Ok, so I really was looking forward to some fried deliciousness for dinner!

So, when Andrew walked in the door and delivered the blow, I was devistated.  They didn’t make the fired chicken today!  Instead, we had rotisserie as a substitute.  Normally, I would have been thrilled, but I had psyched myself up all day for the fried stuff!  To make matters worse, this was not good rotisserie chicken.  It was overly dry and lacked any sort of flavor.

The meal was not a total loss, however.  We did have a nice side of three-cheese tortellini and peas.  The best part of the meal, however was that good old standby – cornbread.  Fresh and hot out of the oven and dripping with butter…I had several pieces to make up for my fowl loss.
