Into temptation

Chicken fried steak finger baskets are on special at the DQ for $2.99. But I resisted.

The call of beef is hard to resist in Texas, especially when it smells like barbeque. Tonight I had a plate of chipped beef and fixin's from Bodacious Barbeque in Gilmer. The slaw was fine--chipped cabbage instead of julienned, which is OK--but maybe a little too much mayo. The potato salad was great, mustardy, a bit of German influence. The bread, on the other hand, was unforgivable: two slices of white bread. The meat was moist, juicy, scarlet red on the inside and charred on the outside, just as it should be. But there's no getting around it: it's the wrong animal.
