Rich's Note:   Chicken

Seems like Chick-fil-A had a banner day today. I like their food pretty
much, but I don’t go there often because the lines are always so long
even though the unit they opened last year in Leesburg is HUGE and has
two drive-thru lanes.

Yesterday, or the day before, foxnews.com had an article about making
your own Chick-fil-A at home. The Fox article was cursory, so I clicked
on the link to seriouseats.com and found a very long article on how they
developed their clone recipe. I enjoyed it muchly {sic} and found the
link to the actual recipe at the very end of the article. That article
is at:

Do You Remember?

May the Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose
Little Jimmy Dickens 1965
Words and Music by Neal Merritt

One fine day as I was a-walkin' down the street
Spied a beggar man with rags upon his feet
Took a penny from my pocket
In his tin cup I did drop it
I heard him say as I made my retreat

"May the bird of paradise fly up your nose"
"May an elephant caress you with his toes"
"May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose"
"May the bird of paradise fly up your nose"

The laundry man is really on his toes
Found a hundred-dollar bill among my clothes
When he called me I came a-runnin'
Gave him back his dime for phonin'
I heard him sayin' as I turned to go


I was way behind one day to catch the train
Taxi driver said "We'll make it just the same"
The speed cop made it with us
And as he wrote out the ticket
I stood by politely a-waitin' for my change
