In Response to Re: Fried chicken & waffles?:
As I recall this was a "thing" with musicians after playing late into the night they were sort of eating breakfast and dinner in the same meal. Pretty sure it began in Harlem New York. (I will check and report back on my research) I have not tried the two together but I was encouraged to try honey on fried chicken once and found it very good. So I guess the sweet from a syrup for waffles would be pretty much the same. I do like a squeeze of lemon on fried chicken. Then again I like a squeeze of lemon with some sugar on pancakes or waffles. Now that's good! The chicken and waffles goes back to the 17th century. ( Boy was I wrong about Harlem then!) African- Americans would use the waffles to supplement the chicken they had to make the Sunday meal more "hearty".

Nikki wow! What you can learn now-a-days. Wish we would of had these computers when I was in school! Thanks for the info. Now I get it. Also now I think about it I have had sweet chicken. My favorite Chinese restaurant has delicious lemon chicken so honey could be very good. Guess what I have to do now? Make sweet chicken! I don't make fried chicken (hate the mess) but do oven chicken. When I used to make fried chicken about a 100 years ago I would put foil over the whole rest of the stove & newspaper down all around the floor. Rip it all off and there you go. No mess.
