chicken fried steak?? what is that???

 Grin Only the finest food known to man, in Texas anyway!!! A traditional CFS (diner shorthand) is a round steak (tenderized because it is probably the toughtest cut off a beef there is) dredged in flour (some prefer a wet batter) and deep fried in fat as you would a piece of chicken. My mom always shallow fried hers in a cast iron skillet and then made the gravy in the drippings. Many a restaurant makes their reputation on their CFS. Some are worth a thirty mile drive, some aren't worth a walk around the block.

Personally, yeast rolls, mashed potatoes and field peas are what I like best with CFS, followed up by a nice long NAP.  Wink

And sweet corn bread is just wrong. IMHO

 Grin There isn't much that's really healthy about southern food, greens only taste good if they are cooked with copious amounts of salt pork and grits are best dripping with butter.

Um, I'm hungry now.

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I wish you the best!!!

This may be considered TMI, but instead of sewing, which I only do sporadically at best, I've taken to using a few of my more, shall we say, weathered bathroom hand towels for the overnight flow.

It's been kind of a "cut to fit" experiment with folding and various thickness levels, but it's allowed my to purchase exactly three large bags of commercial pads in the last year and I used to use a bag a month.
