The "PICNIC BASKET"

Today is an absolutely beautiful Day. There is a Air-Balloon Fest at the local airport. The "gang" wanted a picnic basket. I thought ok no problem. The count went to 18 people (children and adults). Normally, I do not fry foods a lot. They are baked or grilled. The "gang" wanted fried chicken legs. I coat them in a buttermilk batter, twice fried for extra crispy. After the first 2 batches I was wondering if I was cooking at KFC? For the good portion of the morning I fried, fried, fried  chicken legs. I smell like a chicken! Soon I will cluck like a chicken? !!I made a huge Fresh Fruit salad, Oatmeal raisin cookies. Loaded 3 coolers, 50 bottles of (16.9 ounce) frozen water, that ought to do the trick. There is a (free) concert tonight which I am looking forward to. The Air Balloons are so pretty ;the colors so vibrant. Many activities going on as I post to you. Heck, no I am sitting in  my lounger in the shade enjoying the sights. They'll want to eat probably in an hour or two! For now its lazy in the shade for me! Hope you all have a great weekend! In closing, I wish you "Good Health". Cheryl "Cheffie Cooks" Wiser.
