Fried Chicken Obsession

Why are people obsessed with Fried Chicken? 

People just don't get enough! It brings me back to my childhood because Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes was one of my favorite meals. My mom did cook chicken sometimes but usually we had it more from take out. We would always have a huge pile of mashed potatoes (in fact, mashed potatoes is my dad's favorite dish and I have inherited the liking from him).

How many types of fried chicken are there? 

It really depends on where you’re from. In Texas, there’s only two kinds: deep fried and greasy, either on the bones or tenders. In Chicago, there’s a different version depending on what type of chicken the restaurant serves. Even the name of the dish—chicken fried or chicken n’ gravy—varies based on region.

In Nashville you have the infamous Hot Chicken. Fried chicken covered in either dry rub heat or wet heat. You can get tenders or bone-in chicken as well. Make sure you have a nice milk shake to go with it to help cool your mouth down.

Why do people love fried chicken? What makes us choose this food of all foods? Is it because fried chicken is simple? Yes, but that’s not the only reason people love fried chicken. Many people love it because one thing fried chicken brings to the table, it’s crunch. People love crispy, crunchy chicken parts. Some people love it because of it’s simplicity. Some people love fried chicken because it’s flavor. And as for me, I love fried chicken because of chicken’s versatility. I like to use chicken in all kinds of ways. 

To fry—how delicious it sounds! 

Fried chicken can be prepared in several ways depending on the preferences of people. Below are the most common and easiest ways you can make fried chicken:

Oven: You will season the chicken with spices and herbs and roast/bake it in an oven until the chicken reaches the preferred temperature for serving. This serves as a healthier alternative to cook fried chicken. 

Pan Fry: Flour the chicken, season it with herbs and spices, and lay it in a little bit of oil in a pan. You will have to turn it to create an all around crisp. Cook until the inside is about 165 degrees F. 

Deep Fry: Similar to pan fry except you are using more oil to submerge the chicken in once flour, spices, and herbs have been added. Submerge in oil for about 8-10 minutes per piece. 

“If you could be in a place where food is not just food, but a celebration, that place would be in the Joy of frying chicken” - unknown

It seems like everyone loves fried chicken. And the truth is, to love the food, It reminds us of all the places we have been, of all the places we were. We aren’t going to remember the fried chicken ingredients per se; we’re going to remember the places where our food comes from. Sometimes that place is where they serve fried chicken!

Different Types of Diets Part 1 - Atkins Diet

  What Is The Atkins Diet? The Atkins weight loss diet is based on one simple principle: Your body burns both carbohydrates and fat for calories. If you reduce the amounts of carbohydrates available, it will burn more fat and you will lose weight.     According to Atkins, calories are unimportant. The key to losing weight is to restrict the carbohydrates that you eat and force the body to turn to its stored fat as an energy source. As proof of this, proponents of the Atkins Diet point to the following facts derived from research:     * When the body doesn't have enough carbohydrate, it will use ketenes derived from fat as energy.  * You can eat more food and lose more weight on a low carbohydrate diet than you can on a low fat diet.  * You crave less food when you eat fewer carbohydrates.  * By eating fewer carbohydrates, people tend to eat fewer calories without counting them.  * The greater the difference between fat and carbohydrate, the greater the weight loss.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Franklin Square, NY

Small towns can offer a lot.  Like hidden gems where you least expect them.  Sometimes they are just small towns with nothing to offer.  Franklin Square, NY isn't one of the latter.  I don't say this because I live here, I say it because it is a melting pot of culture and heritage.  So many mixed families have come to call this town their home.  A definite change from the decades ago I once knew.  The more this town changes, the more I like it.  When you bring in new families with new cultures, you bring in new businesses that offer things not seen before.  To some that can be threatening, but to the open minded (or those of mixed decent) it is welcoming and exciting actually.   What is now Franklin Square was near the center of the Hempstead Plains, and used as grazing land, and later farmland, by the first white settlers. The southern portion included oak and dogwood forests. In late 1643, Robert Fordham and John Carman made a treaty with members of the Massapequak, Meric
