MissRaven 4 years agreeing with jmorri26...I live in Fort Worth Tx, and depending on the restaurant, chicken fried steak comes with white or brown gravy, or "naked" suziryder 4 years Interesting quiz. I learned a few things! :D jmorri26 4 years You know what, I answered no about the Chicken Fried Steak thought everything I know about them is that it comes with white gravy- once I moved to Dallas I learned that at many many places I've order chicken or country fried steak what you get back is a big deep fried battered piece of meat- no gravy. I've more often than not had to ask while ordering if I could get white gravy on it, so I can resoundingly say this is not true! At least not in Texas! AmberHoney 4 years I forgot to mention - you used "white-out" on that apple didn't you?! :rotfl: AmberHoney 4 years :) Food 4 years Thanks for the kind words, AmberHoney! And I love your hilarious comments. AmberHoney 4 years Some of those were tricky - like the chicken fried steak.....enjoy all the quizzes on the Sugar site.
