Kentucky Fried Chicken Redux or Guilty Pleasures

Fried Chicken with Mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans

I might have mentioned that it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago. And, in celebration, Yes!Chef! made dinner for the fam.  He suggested an upscaled Kentucky Fried Chicken type of recipe, which I thought might be mighty tasty.  I’m pretty sure most people have eaten at Kentucky Fried Chicken at some point in their life.  My daughter tells me that in Mozambique, the Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurant is where everyone hangs out.  She also tells me that they eat a lot of chicken in Mozambique, along with fruits, vegetables and rice.

Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Print Competitions

Yes!Chef! loves pork.  Until he started cooking pork for me, I always turned up my nose at any mention of recipes that included pork.  My experience with pork has been dried up meat that needed lots of barbecue sauce in order to be able to choke it down.

My mind has been changed with some of the recipes Y!C! has made…specifically the Pressure Cooker Carnitas Recipe and the Pulled Pork Recipe he made last summer.  And now, he’s found a Pulled Pork Recipe that is more to his liking:  spicy, sweet and no-creamy cole slaw.

Oh how I loved this meal!  I mean, really, really loved it.  I want to have it at least once a month because I loved it so much.

What is it?  Citrus flavored Pork Carnitas cooked with the amazing, marvelous pressure cooker.

The Return of Yes!Chef! and his Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes

I don’t think I mentioned that Yes!Chef! got called to the East Coast to help out some of the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  Not with his cooking skill, but doing his day job as an insurance adjuster.  He was gone three weeks and we were sad to miss him on Thanksgiving…especially his cooking.

Luckily, he was still at home for his birthday, so the kids and I decided to make him dinner.  (It is so sad that it took at least 5 of us to do what he does with just one of him.)  Oldest son’s girlfriend made a lovely German Chocolate cake, which is Yes!Chef!’s favorite.
