I am back again today with another Tasty Tuesday installment. This past Friday my husband had off for a long weekend for President’s Day. We had to drive to Corpus Christi for a doctor’s appointment for me. When we do day excursions like this we tend to take one of our children with us for one-on-one time. Our youngest son who is seventeen went along for the ride this time. We tend to try to pick places to eat that suit the personality and tastes of the child/children we have with us. So this time, we saw a sign for CiCi’s Pizza and decided that was a good place to stop.
With three sons in our family, we have found buffets tend to be the perfect place to come. Unfortunately, this time, a school bus full of other teenagers arrived at the same time we did. Now having three sons of my own, I know teenage boys can eat a lot! I repeat teenage boys can eat A LOT! The food was okay but not as great as we remembered. Our son loves to get the Hawaiian pizza from CiCi’s that has ham and pineapple on it. They had a Hawaiian pizza, but unfortunately, it did not have one of the two required ingredients, which mad our son disappointed.
For one of our other meals, we had my husband’s fried chicken. This is something he has mastered the art of cooking. We take a pack of drumsticks, all-purpose flour and some cornmeal for the coating. He mixes it together, coats the chicken and proceeds to fry it in a cast iron fry pan. It comes out amazing. We served it with Western Beans from Aldi’s, mashed potatoes (that I added some of the sauce from the beans to my potatoes), and green beans. All in all, it was a really good meal.
Tonight we are having Mexican for dinner. What are you cooking at your house? I would love to hear from you.
