Chicken Fried Chicken

Braedon is turning 2 on Saturday and boy is he acting like a 2 year old.

During stream, he screamed and cried and just completely threw a fit every time that I did anything.

I got really annoyed and didn’t know what to do about it, so I just kept giving him food to get at least 5 minutes of peace and quiet.

Luckily on stream I was doing a bunch of Southern food that I really miss right now.  

My favorite thing that I made was chicken fried chicken.

Everyone asked me why it’s called chicken fried chicken and I really don’t know why.  I think it’s because it’s boneless and fried chicken is usually with a bone in it.  But that’s the best explanation that I can tell you.

What I do know, is that it tastes amazing and makes you so happy after you eat it.

Especially if you have a mound of mashed potatoes, some greens, and cornbread.  Oh my gosh that sounds so good right now.

Starting in a week, I will be streaming at Noon PST instead of of 3PST because B will be in school again.  

I am so excited for him to go back to school, he needs more stimulation that what I can give him.  I have been taking him to the park, to different museums, and to other things, but I feel like I am not enough to him.

I’ve started cooking with him, trying to teach him to cook as well.  Let’s just say he may still be a little too young for that.

Hopefully the older he gets the more he likes cooking with me.
