I don't normally comment on my consumption of victuals.  But I just had a piece of leftover Bojangles Chicken from last night.  I ate it cold and I am happy to say it's nearly as good cold as it is fresh from the deep fryer.

For those of you who have never had Bojangles chicken (and unless you live in the south, that's almost all of you) it's vastly superior to any other fast food chicken chain's bird.  Probably worth a trip to North Carolina just to have some.

You ain't lyin' CR.....
Bojangles is our go-to for fast-food chicken. Far superior to KFC and Bojangles biscuits are good too (I can't stand KFC biscuits).
Their salads and the Jambalaya bowl are good. We have a good one in our location and (I hope I ain't jinxing it) the chicken is always hot.
There have been a few hiccups from time to time in the past where bad management had the employees so flustered that they handed out the wrong orders at the window, but that happens everywhere. Once they got that manager out they have been on their game.

The only other fast-food place in town that is as consistently good is Zaxby's.

Wilted spinach  sallad...

2 strips of thick bacon
3 cloves of garlic
1 small red onion  Frenched( or half of a big one)
1# spinach
Parmesan cheese
Black pepper
Chili flake

Cook the bacon over medium  low until it becomes cripsy like a cracker.  Use a big pan/ stock pot/ wok
Remove the bacon and resist eating it. Thats why you cook 2, one for quality control samples and the other for the salad.
 Throw in half of the onion  and garlic.  Cook it until soft and use it to " scrub" the brown bits of the bottom of the pan add chili flakes for about 30 seconds.
Add in spinach.  Don't worry it will all fit.  Turn off the heat, toss the spinach until soft in the bacon fat/ onions/garlic.  Toss in the rest of the onion, and grate the parm and the pepper mix well.  Serve in a bowl warm with the last piece of bacon crumbled on top and a bitmore parm.

It has all the major food groups.

You have the salt group, the onion group, garlic group, cheese group, green group and most important of all the bacon food group.

Seriously unless you don't eat bacon, there is no way you won't eat this.  I just ate an entire batch  for lunch
I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

I have discovered the joys of "Nutella".   ;D
Like peanut butter only hazelnuts.
with cocoa.
And sugar .
Basically chocolate Fluff only good for me.   ;D
I actually read the label, but I still think there's a lot more sugar than hazelnut. 
Good stuff !   ;D

Well it's about time mister! :) All that oil and sugar can't be good for you but... CHOCOLATE! I gotta have it. I think I was in in the army over in Germany when I first discovered Nutella. All I know for sure is that I've been a fan of it for a very long time. Hazelnuts are a really big thing in Europe. They put them in all kinds of candy bars and stuff too instead of using other nuts and peanuts. Toffifay ring any bells? There are a few things with other nuts like almonds but they're just nutty about hazelnuts. I love Nutella on toast. If you don't know how much of it to put on your toast the answer is always MORE. If it's not falling off, don't worry, you don't have too much. And when I run out of toast I just scoop it out of the jar and eat it right off the knife. I live alone so I can double dip as many times as I want to.

Speaking of chocolate, I'm eating chocolate chocolate chip rum cake made with real rum. Rum, yum yum yum. Last night after I ate my cake I finished off a bottle of ice cold Evan William's Peach Bourbon straight. It was in the freezer so it didn't need ice. It's sweet and only 70 proof and didn't burn like some whiskey that's only 5%-10% more alcohol. It's good mixed with strong ginger ale or ginger beer but I ran out last month. You know you have enough whiskey in your ginger ale when you no longer taste the ginger. After I eat more cake I think I'll get some Jim Beam out of the cupboard and have a tug on the jug before I go to bed.
