I DESPISE Typos

I have to go look for a recipe, because my books are all clean living and nothing fattening. I am directing. What I do best. My husband is notating. His notations now say:

Fat bacon
Big scallops

Not my emphasis.

Anyway. I have me a Southern craving. I blame Texas, hell I could blame my Southern mum. Reality is I google a recipe and in the first sentence I see a typo:

“Texans have a unique way of rating restaurants that serve CFS. The restaurants are rated by the number of pickup trucks that is parked out in front.”

We have two problems. First of all, we have a mathematical problem and that is: singular means one, plural means more than one.

Additionally, it’s an English problem for the same reasons above.

Therefore, I don’t know if I can trust this recipe. Damn that irks me. But here it is for your perusal: http://whatscookingamerica.net/Beef/ChickenFriedSteak.htm

I still want my Chicken Friend Steak, but for right now I’m just going to window shop and drool a bit.

That looks like sausage gravy! And a biscuit! Oh. My. Goodness. Delicious!
