Sounds like a good day of food and leftovers.
Oh my goodness
Holy Crap, barney that breakfast I’m pretty sure is illegal in 12 countries.
inner loins and heart dusted with treager big game & served with bourbon/butter reduction sauce.
Now that's what I'm talking about!
In spite of all my cooking, chopping up fresh potatoes & pan frying them has ALWAYS given me fits. They either aren't done enough & taste raw or they burn & taste like charcoal. I've tried & tried & tried over the years & figured it just wasn't to be. Until, I saw Barney's post with the fried taters & just had to try again. I don't know what I did different this time but they came out PERFECTLY!!!! Yay!!!!! Now I need to try fried chicken again... still haven't gotten that pinned down yet.
Thanks, Lady Hunter, those look perfect!
When I was growing up, my grandmother would serve a big skillet of fried taters as a one course meal several times a year. It wasn't out of necessity, it stemmed from desire. Perfectly fried taters are still one of my most craven comfort foods!
My grandmother made the best fried chicken and taters I have ever eaten! Both of them she just turned over once. She never even peeked under the lid, she just went by the smell for when it was time to flip.
Lost one grandmother when I was just a kid, the other one thought cooking was "beneath her," and grew up with a mom who could burn water without even trying hard. (Honest to God, the only way I survived was thanks to ketchup - you pour enough of it on something, you can eat most anything!)
So I basically learned to cook initially thanks to cookbooks & then later youtube and sites like this. If I have numbers & times & so forth, I can generally get it done but stuff like these potatoes (and especially fried chicken) where you just have to KNOW is a lot tougher. I envy folks who grew up in cookin' families!!!
Wish I'd gotten a pic before we attacked it like hungry hawgs but..... I threw together a sorta pot pie using leftover biscuits for lunch today. My husband says he'll be fixing extra biscuits from now on! A pint of canned chicken (drained), a bag of frozen veggies (thawed), a can of cream of chicken soup, and a little salt & pepper topped with leftover biscuits that were cut in half. Baked at 350 for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
It's snowing ! !

How to make Snow Ice Cream that tastes as creamy and delicious as the original! This delightfully sweet treat takes just a couple minutes to make and is made with 4 ingredients you have in your kitchen!...
I love chicken or potatoes fried in LARD. I sometimes use bacon grease. But rarely have enough to use.
Looks to me like you Learnt real well.
Lol... I prefer various omelets or scrambled eggs. I have never tried fried eggs of any other kind and strongly lack the desire. The thought of runnny egg yolk within fried eggs repulses me. I used to watch my mother prepare such for my father but never really paid much attention. Really unsure of the term, but he is quite particular about them, I learned for the first time, upon my return here. He has always been a great cook, himself, and has long made his own, but I decided to edge in upon his cooking a bit, here and there, simply to lighten his load. I learned that it was not quite as easy as he and my mother made all look, and he did not hesitate to inform me, lol. I either over or under cooked them the first few times but finally figured out the trick, making me feel like some Waffle House Queen, lol, even though I still do not know the correct term for those eggs nor care. Those things look gross, and he was always the only one within the family to eat them. Maybe it's a Kentucky thang.
As for fried potatoes, I absolutely love them and regularly prepare them. I have never cut them into little squares or shreds but leave them round with the peel, slow cooking all for 45 minutes to one hour with tons of bacon, onions, and pepper.
I can close my eyes now, and just about taste my mothers fried potatoes.
