FIRST field trip!

Watching the ranger game in style.

Homemade comfort food! Green beans with bacon, mashed potatoes, and chicken friend chicken with gravy!
Green beans:
I suggest tripling the recipe. I could eat these every day!!

Mashed potatoes: 3 russet potatoes, skinned and boiled until soft. Mash and add half and half, cream cheese, sour cream and salt/pepper. I just add to taste. Half and half is just used to make creamier.

Chicken fried chicken: I don't have a recipe. I take thin chicken breast strips. Coat them in egg/buttermilk mixture. Toss in flour, pepper, paprika, garlic mixture. Then repeat. Get pan of oil hot and cook for about 3 minutes on each side.

Gravy: I use the same pan with the pan drippings in it. If a lot I may discard some, then I made a roux. What is roux? Well, be ready to sit at stir like a maniac!! Melt 3tbsp of butter in pan, Add 3 tbsp of floor with a whisk (a little at a time) and whisk like a mad woman! Then add a cup of milk (or so depending on thickness you like), SLOWLY, and continue to whisk! Whisk, and whisk. Alright, now add salt and pepper to taste!! You can thank me later for the arm workout and delicious gravy!
Crazy girl! Finds anywhere to sleep but her bed!!
