Clouds/Moon ~ Tarweed ~ Sunset ~ Hungarian Pig in Sheep's Clothing ~ Picture of the Day ~ Crock Pot bacon Parmesan Chicken Dinner ~ Cyndi & Pete Moreno ~ Karen Tomes ~ National Fried Chicken Day

Good 52º somewhat cloudy morning. And the moon is up there...

You can see all the yellow flowers in the fields, and that is tarweed. Sticky and smelly. Ted Evans of Evans Pest Control got here at 6:40 this morning here to spray all the fields to kill the tarweed. 

Yesterday the winds got wild and the clouds blew in and it got dark. No sun. The sunset was colorful!

Interesting .....

The Mangalica (also Mangalitsa or Mangalitza) is a Hungarian breed of domestic pig. It was developed in the mid-19th century by crossbreeding Hungarian breeds from Szalonta and Bakony with European wild boar and the Serbian Šumadija breed.[3] The Mangalica pig grows a thick, woolly coat similar to that of a sheep.
Otherwise, a pig in sheep's clothing!!!

  • We used boneless skinless chicken thighs in our recipe, you can use the desired chicken of your choice, however, cooking time may vary

In the United States, National Fried Chicken Day is observed each year on July 6th.  On this day, fried chicken lovers across the country celebrate this American favorite at a nearby restaurant, home or an outdoor picnic.
Scottish immigrants brought their tradition of deep-frying chicken in fat to the southern United States.  After its introduction to the American South, fried chicken soon became a staple. Over time, seasonings and spices were added to enrich the flavor of the chicken.
Fried chicken is a dish that consists of chicken pieces which have been floured or battered then pan-fried, deep-fried or pressure-fried. The breading adds a crisp coating to the exterior of the chicken.
Traditionally the chicken is fried in lard.  However, corn oil, peanut oil, canola oil or vegetable oil are also frequently used.
