I haven’t posted anything this week and I’m sorry. I cannot get used to it being dark when I get home from work. Next Saturday night we turn the clocks back another hour. Top Girl doesn’t like daylight savings time so she will be more than glad for it to be over, but I don’t care for driving home in the dark. Speaking of next Saturday – Norman will be abuzz with activity as the University of Oklahoma plays Notre Dame. It doesn’t happen often and TV stations will be here from all over the country. The game starts at 7:00 PM but we will be having more company than you can imagine all day long in order for folks to be “in town” while the game is going on. Of course, most all of us will be watching on TV and with a high predicted of 62 F – by 7:00 PM I wouldn’t want to be at the game anyway. With all these people coming, we needed food that I could make and serve and still stay on my diet – yeah, remember THAT? What did every single person request? Mr. Picky eaters chicken fried steak. Now, how am I supposed to eat that and stay on my diet?
Top Girl, smart girl that she is, thought we could take this wonderful old southern favorite and turn it on its head – satisfying all the football watchers, tailgaters, and those just along for the ride while keeping me and a few others on the straight and narrow of low calories. She’s the best and proved it once again by finding a way for everyone to be happy! Mr. Picky eater and I tried it out tonight and Woo Hoo – It’s a winner winner chicken fried dinner!!
Chicken Fried Steak Sliders
These are the two main ingredients:
This is how Mr. Picky eater prepared the Cube Steak:
Frying – be very careful with this and watch carefully. It takes very little time to cook these.
Plate of toppings – shredded lettuce, sliced grape tomatoes, and onion chopped fine.
Don’t these look fantastic? Even with mayo, these are only 140 calories each which means I can have two that day and NOT blow my diet – how great is that?!?!? Do YOU know who Eskimo Joe is? I grew up with him!
