One thing I’m always craving is hearty Southern food in the form of fried chicken. A visit to Lucy’s Fried Chicken (my go-to location is off South Congress, but there are others around the city) can run up about a $60 bill. I can’t help myself around a menu full of fried Southern foods!

This afternoon, we fried some chicken from the grocery store (~$8) and made some easy macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes. Of course the gravy was homemade as well.

I can’t forget about the main reason for the high bill either; Lucy’s has a great cocktail menu with refreshing drinks that pair well with salty fried foods. I recreated my favorite drink from their menu here
