It is sad that quality fats are being replaced by low quality carbs (sugars). Spray fat? What are you trying to accomplish other than a carbo centric low-fat/bad fat diet?

I am from PA originally and lived near the Pennsylvania Dutch. They have a different take on Chicken and Waffles. Their chicken is made like a chicken noodle soup boiled chicken with a thickened chicken broth and then you make the waffle and put chicken in the middle with another waffle on top. Then add the chicken gravy all over it and eat in. Amazing how good that is.

That does sound delicious.
