Grandmama's Fried Chicken

Kirk credits much of his love of cooking to his Gramdmama and Great Grandmama and has countless wonderful memories of times spent in their kitchens and at their tables. Each time Grandmama comes to visit, she makes one of Kirk's favorites, her famous fried chicken. On Friday, she spent hours cooking for us. The result was about 45 pieces of perfectly fried chicken. I have helped her make it several times now and know the recipe/method, but I don't think it would be the same if I made it myself!

The fam ready to eat! This was the first time that Erik, Kelly, and Jaime had feasted on Grandmama's cooking. Jaime said that she has now ruined chicken for him because nothing else will compare to hers. :)

At first, Trip wasn't quite sure what to do with his chicken leg,

but it didn't take him long to figure it out!

He is now a big fan, just like his daddy and the rest of the family.

Here he is complimenting Great Gram on her cooking. (Notice that Jale is eagerly waiting for anything that he might drop!)

Of course the benefit of making such a great feast is that there were plenty of leftovers, although they didn't last more than 24 hours!

Oh wow, you guys have been busy. I am DYING for some of that fried chicken or even some pear butter. Those are great labels on the jars, btw! How did the pear butter turn out? Trip is SO cute. I liked his hair style using food products a few posts down.
