My dinner challenge

I may be born and raised in the south, but I've never made fried chicken or mashed potatoes from scratch.  I'm been craving comfort food, but don't want to go spend the $$$ on it at a take out place.  So I got out my cook book and had everything I needed to make a southern dish.  

Chicken and Mashed Potatoes from scratch!  I used skinless, boneless chicken breast and fileted them  to thin them out.  And a little broccoli to counter act the "fried" part.  I cut one breast into bite size chicken nuggets for the kids and gave them some honey mustard to go with.  Family loved it!  

Here's my tracker for today:

Fiber One pop tarts: 190
pineapple: 60
1/2 cup coffee: 30

Whole Wheat BLT with turkey bacon: 262
Baked Lays: 120
more pineapple: 90
pudding: 120

Spiced cupcake with a little bit of vanilla icing (made for a friend, but I had to try!): 318
Mocha: (home mix): 90

fried chicken:350
mashed potatoes:237
gravy: 45
Decalf iced tea: 30

Total: 2102
