Technically I guess today is snow day two and a half for my kids. (Since they did go to school for a half day on Tuesday, I won't count that as a complete snow day.)
Mia was very excited to be outside eating snowballs and chasing sleds yesterday. She crashed out in front of the fire pretty early last night.
Who am I kidding? After a day of sledding and snowball fights, we ALL crashed out pretty early last night.
I love snow days.
After our day in the snow, it felt good to come inside for a nice warm dinner. Fried chicken sandwiches from Cook's Country seemed like a perfectly acceptable meal for snow day #1 1/2.
Fried Chicken Sandwiches
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 Tablespoons water
2 egg whites
2 quarts peanut oil
Dip in breading. Courtney did all of the breading for me last night which meant that I could be the photographer. (Did I mention how much I love having them home on snow days?)
I thought that these were mighty tasty chicken sandwiches but the biggest compliment of all was that my family voted them even BETTER than their favorite fast food chicken sandwiches! (In the world of me - that is the highest compliment that I could receive.)
I think we just found our new snow day staple - fried chicken sandwiches.
