Deep fried delicacies


I'm a native Southerner who has come back home to the South after many years away. Not too long ago, I would have turned up my nose at deep fried food. But now that I'm back and exposed to it on a daily basis, I have to admit: I love the stuff. I took the photo above at a food vendor's booth at the Arts & Crafts Fair on St. Simons Island Saturday afternoon. Didn't buy anything (since I'd just eaten some local shrimp on Jekyll), but I was tempted. Deep fried, people. That's what it's all about.

P.S. Although it was a serious violation of my diet, I had lunch today at the very famous Price's Chicken Coop in Charlotte. It was the best fried chicken I've ever had. And so worth the dietary setback. :-)
