New Experiences

I went back to work full time for the first time in 14 years.  I was fortunate to stay home with my kids all that time.


While working late one night, my assistant principal’s husband brought her and I supper.  I suggested pizza and he showed up with a chicken fried steak sandwiches.  I had never eaten one before.  The concept of eating beef fixed like chicken went against my eating morals since I grew on a beef and dairy farm.  I figured if I wanted something to taste like chicken I would order chicken.  Not to mention I grew up in Wisconsin and chicken fried steak is definitely a southern thing.  Anyway, I actually liked the chicken fried steak.  My assistant principal and her husband couldn’t believe I had never tried it before.


Since I usually have pictures in my posts, imagine a chicken fried steak sandwich here.  I don’t have time to find a picture.


The other thing I recently  tried was a cherry limeade from Sonic.  I always thought they would be sour, so I never tried them.  Once again, my assistant principal’s husband brought her and I cherry limeades one day after school had started.  I really like them.  I had never heard of a cherry limeade until I came to college in OK.  I had never heard of Sonic.   The closest Sonic to my parents is now 2 hours away. They are getting closer.


Insert picture of a cherry limeade from Sonic here.

    Oh man, Cherry Limeades are good. I haven’t had one in years, but I do enjoy them. Now I just get water at Sonic. Boring! But they do have good ice.

    Seriously, Amy! I know how you like to hit up Sonic during happy hour, and you’ve never had a cherry limeade! Speaking as one who is over 1000 miles away from a sonic, I just can’t believe you hadn’t tried one yet. Although cherry limeade are not necessarily my favorite. If you haven’t tried a lemon berry slush you’re REALLY missing out–it’s not sour either.

    Seriously no chicken fried steaks until now? Wow! I can’t imagine my life without them. But I guess the name IS kinda strange. Yes, why would you want steak prepared like chicken? Glad you liked it and the Cherry Limeade!

    Dawn says the cherry limeades are good. Guess I will have to try one while we are down there this time.

  • You’ve never had a cherry Limade. They are my favorite. My husband prefers the strawberry limeade.

    I was the same & hadn’t even heard of Sonic or limeades until I came to OC. Also, I don’t think I’ve still ever tried chicken fried steak. (I do remember them having them on the menu in the cafeteria in grade school)
