Directions:
Combine evaporated milk and regular milk, then beat in eggs. Place chicken pieces (with or without skin) into liquid, cover and put back into refrigerator for 30 minutes. Put enough vegetable oil in skillet so that when chicken goes in, oil will come about half way up chicken pieces. Heat oil to about 350°. Take chicken out of refrigerator, salt and pepper each piece, then roll in flour. If you prefer heavy batter, double dip chicken into each mixture a second time, then place into skillet and cook about 9 minutes on each side. If you prefer light batter, dip just once, and cook for the same amount of time. Drain well before serving.

Seeing is Believing

Daddy used to tell the story about the first time my Grandmother Peck took me to Church. I was about 3 years old at the time, and still only one of two grandchildren on my dad’s side of the family. I was quite a spoiled young man. When we left for Church, Daddy gave me a dollar bill, and told me that it was to give to God. When I returned home later that day I gave the dollar back to Daddy, and he looked rather strange. When he asked why I brought the dollar back, I simply replied that “I didn’t see God to give it to him.” Daddy proceeded to try and explain the idea of faith to me. Well, in case you haven’t noticed, the most frequently used word in a 3 year-old’s vocabulary is “why,” so it was a long afternoon.
