Here are the fill-ins:

1. I tried  Taste Woods Barbeque and I liked it.

There is a family here in Wharton, Texas, that owns and operates their own business.  Their last name is Woods. They do a fabulous job.

2. Am I the only one who thinks most of the rest of the world has lost their freakin’ minds ?

When I was young, if someone was single that meant that they were not married.  Now, it means that you aren’t in a relationship with anyone. Back then, the term fiance meant that you were engaged.  Now, it means that you are having sex and may or may not intend to get married.

Back then, a woman who showed her anatomy was considered to be a, well you know.  Now, a woman who doesn’t show her anatomy is unusual.

3. Jesus Christ is my hero.

This man came to earth, died on the Cross to save us of our many sins.  He did this even though He did not have to. He would have done this just for me.

4. If I could eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be large ribeye steaks.

Back in the day, we had two steakhouses in the county seat.  Both had the same steak listed as number 9 on the menu board.  I could go in to either Ryan’s or Quincy’s and say, “I’d like a number 9, cooked medium, with baked potato, with butter and sour cream.  I would like mushroom gravy on the side. “

I could do that almost in my sleep because, as a young adult, I ate out at these places a lot.  Those were carefree days. Then, life happened. Back then, there was no light bill, water bill, phone bill, insurance payments, etc.  

I also think I could eat salad as an only food.  After just a few days without lettuce, my body starts to crave it.  It is almost like a basic need to have the lettuce help clean my system.

Just the other day, our youngest daughter brought home something we had never tried before.  You know we are from the South and have probably had just about everything deep fried. We even have two large deep fryers. We had never tried deep fried dill pickles.

Well, at the local Hinze restaurant (pronounced like Hens) they have a menu item called Fried Pickles.  They sell a lot of these, and I do mean a lot. They take dill pickle chips, drain them, roll them in corn meal, and deep fry them.  These are actually pretty good, but they won’t replace deep fried green tomatoes or okra. You really ought to try this, unless you are chicken.  

Oh yes, here in Gulf Coast Texas we have something called chicken fried chicken.  Gotta take a while to get your head around that concept. What humans call Country Fried Steak, Texans call chicken fried steak.  They take a cubed steak, dip it in flour, and fry it, like you would a chicken.

Since you have chicken fried steak, naturally if you cook a chicken filet the same way, it is chicken fried chicken.  Only in Texas, home of the Frito Pie, would you have chicken fried chicken.

For those who have never heard of Frito Pie, there is no pie crust involved. Here, they take Frito’s corn chips and pour chili over them.  Then, they sprinkle cheese over that and microwave it.

They also have Hamburger Pie here.  You take ground beef and brown it. You put that in a casserole dish and add mashed potatoes, green beans, canned tomatoes, onion, etc. and cook it in the oven until it is hot.  No crust. What is a pie without a pie crust? Even the yankees have crust on their pizza pie. Oh well, it is a different world here in Gulf Coast Texas.

Catch you on the flip!

  1. Oh yeah, Taste Woods is the best! I don't know how they stand to be out there so close to that cooker, though. That must be torture, especially in this heat.

    I love you, my Zing.

    1. It would appear to be a little hot at the cooker. I love you, my Zing!

  2. I often wonder the same thing. What has this world come to? Scary!

    1. The really sad thing is that now a woman has to look all over to find clothes that aren't revealing. So many of them don't mind showing the world everything.

  3. Thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! Times really have changed, and that is often so disheartening. Your answer to #3 is absolutely perfect. And, so is your answer to #4. Now I'm hungry. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you. I am glad you agree. Have a blessed week.

  4. Thank you for participating, great answers.. You have made me hungry for steak and this frito pie that I have not heard of before. Yes, people are crazy. Have a nice weekend!

    1. You should try it. Frito Pie is simple to make. It is sort of like chili cheese fries only you use Fritos instead of French Fries.

  5. I so agree with your #2. Everyone's nuts these days. Have a great week!

    1. We have run into females that think it is perfectly fine for them to show practically everything they have but who say this does not give a man a right to touch her. It is true he does not have that right unless she gives it to him. However, she should expect it to happen anyway. She should not advertise something she has no intention of selling. This is just plain common sense. Have a blessed week.
