Chicken Fried Steak! P.S. NOT low fat

One of my mom’s guilty pleasures was eating Chicken Fried Steak. I never remember her making it, but if we were in a little diner somewhere with chicken fried steak on the menu she would probably order it, with cream gravy. I didn’t know what I was missing and that was a good thing.
A few years ago my husband bought a quarter of a cow from a friend of his. After we ate the steaks and burger there were several packages in the bottom of the freezer labeled “Cubed Steak”. I had no idea what to do with them. I, of course, looked up recipes on the internet. The first recipe I found was some sort of goulash, I think, it didn’t make the rotation. Then I found a recipe on AllRecipes.com called Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy by LIKESTOCOOK. Chicken fried steak! Breaded and fried meat with mashed potatoes and gravy! So dangerous. So yummy. I can’t be healthy all the time. I mean really, I love food. I know people who don’t get exited about food, they can live on smoothies and salads. I am a cook. I am a good cook. My husband loves to have a green smoothie for breakfast, but he’ll do the dishes if I make Chicken Fried Steak. That is love right there. We don’t eat this once a month, but every once in a while we need some good ole down home cookin’.
