On Independence Day, we all pile in the car and head down to the Pentagon Parking Lot. Paving cuts down on the mosquito population. We are joined by other people and we pass the time from 6pm til 9:30 when the Washington Monument fireworks begin throwing a football around, playing soccer and ...eating fried chicken.
On that day, nobody is aware of how many pieces I eat and boy do I eat a lot. So I was thinking: how can I make this over?
Usually I drink Coca-cola so this time it will be unsweetened seltzer or iced tea. But what do I do about the rest of the Menu and any ideas for controlling myself?
Heres the menu: Popeyes fried chicken biscuits fried onion rings red beans and rice mashed potatoes cole slaw potato salad cookies watermelon
Your wisdom will be appreciated.

I would choose the red beans and rice a small amount of cole slaw top it off with watermelon and you could have 1 piece of the fried chicken .. your Ice tea sounds good Now how does that sound you avoid the potatoes cookies and biscuits You could even have 1 or 2 onion rings if they are good .. and stay active most of the time while avoiding the potato dishes and breads you can make it almost healthy with these choices at least not too bad if you can enjoy the fried chicken without the crusty part removing it would be healthier.

OR, you could peel the skin off the chicken, remove the meat from the bone, shred it with your fork, mix in some coleslaw, split one of the biscuits and top it with the chicken mixture. Eat it open faced to save some calories and fat and have the watermelon for dessert.
