Fried Chicken

with W and DJ (and IZ)

Hard to believe, but it’s been over 8 months since I last ordered fried chicken for home delivery.  Up until a few years ago, I used to get it at least once a week.  As most chains provide a coupon with each box – collect 10 and redeem them for a freebie– I must’ve gotten a freebie every other month or so.  I currently have 8 coupons from Toreore, our chicken joint of choice, the earliest dating back prior to the start of GMTD.  The drop-off in consumption may have something to do with the blog, which compels me to be more creative in my dining choices.  Or maybe it’s just that I don’t like fried chicken as much anymore.  That’s a good thing, considering my elevated cholesterol level and expanded waistline, but it’s sad to think that yet another one of my all-time favorite foods no longer gives me the satisfaction that it once did.

Some K-Pop “idol” boy band on the box – one of the ultimate endorsement deals that local celebrities can land is a chicken chain.
Each box, regardless of the establishment, comes standard with a whole chicken, a box of pickled radish, dipping sauce(s), and beverage. 14,000 won.
While food companies market their products for babies as young as 4 months, and certain health authorities tend to recommend 6 months, our nanny says that IZ will let us know when he’s ready; now 5 months, he was literally drooling as he watched us eat.
