I set out to accomplish a task (bake fried chicken, in case you don’t ask). I put in paprika–that is the tricka–and now in the taste I can basque.
Well, I don’t really think this is Basque style chicken. I could ask my nephew who is walking across Spain right now. But maybe I’ll just leave it at this. It was really good. I’m basking in the memory of it.
I don’t usually buy chicken with the skin and bones. But last week I had lunch with an old friend of mine (she’s turning 99 soon) and she made oven fried chicken.
There was something quite wonderful about the crispy chicken skin. When I write it like that, it doesn’t sound so wonderful. I’ll let the picture finish the thought.
Chicken thighs were on sale last week. I quickly rushed to the store. ‘Cause I wanted to try the oven bake fry–though it’s loaded with cal’ries galore.
I used Betty Crocker’s recipe, but went a little nuts. Instead of wheat, I used almond flour–no gluten ands or buts.
(Speaking of gluten free and buts, I went to a yoga class yesterday and we did a glute free pose. I don’t actually have a sensitivity to gluten, but processed grains are like sugar to me.)
In the process of baking my chicken, I made a new batch of jam. This time it’s a peach of a traffic jam and I did it ’cause, simply, I can.
I grew the little hot peppers in a pot in my little back yard. I won’t even try it–the sugar’s so high it would make my life very hard.
Detox from sugar is simply a pain when a voice in my head screams, “Eat more, again!”
This writing seems silly, and not very smart, but it’s what I can do with my head and my heart
To keep free of sugar’s addictive control and lighten my load as I journey in goal!
In the process of writing my blog posts, there’s an option to pick categories and tags. I’m still in learning mode for that (instead of a la mode). If you landed here hoping to learn something about addiction recovery, this is it. I am a recovering sugar addict and I write as part of my sugar management program.
If you want to know more, I simply implore you to take a look at my book. Peek inside, free, or buy it and see–in paper or Kindle or Nook!

Best wishes to you.
