Eating In: Chicken Fried Steak w/Gravy (Day 3)

We might lose the health nuts with this one, but honestly… after last night – we needed some southern fried goodness.  Something to keep us going, something hardy.  Is this just a southern thing?  I wonder if some people are reading this on the West Coast going…

Chicken Fried Steak w/ Gravy Pictures (Recession Menu)

If anyone doesn’t have this now and again, you don’t know what your missing.

Here’s the spread…

Chicken Fried Steak (Cube Steak, egg washed & dredged in flour)

Fried Potatoes (Seasoned, diced onions)


Mashed Potatoes

Fried Okra

Gravy (CFS renderings, flour, milk)

2 Beers

The classic.  Chicken Fried Steak w/ gravy.  Potato of your choice (I went with fried potatoes, Shala – mashed), and we also had fried okra. 

Fried fried with fried fried and a side of fried.

And a salad (fresh from the Aerogarden Pro 200 ~ we like to call it by it’s full name, like it is in trouble) of course – to help soak up the fried.  I think this is about the 4th or 5th salad we have pulled from the Aerogarden… starting to pay for itself.  Kinda.

Here is a rundown of the cost of things  – $3.29 (2 – cube steak), $.90 (fried okra), $.31(potatoes) & $2.00 (beers).  We round up on everything, so really and truly – it is likely cheaper than what we say.  Tonight’s total – $6.50

This would run us about $30 bucks at an eating establishment.  Shala has half of her Chicken Fry for a sandwich at lunch tomorrow.  I ate the tacos for lunch the last two days (from Tuesday night)…  enough said.  Day 3 in the books.  Weekend is on the horizon, the real test to anything hard.  Let’s see what we can do.  How’s your quest for independence from the fast food industry?  Anyone fall off the wagon yet?  Let us know.  Wanting to get started… hop on board.
