Fried Chicken n' Waffles, oh Yes!

While my parents were in town for my sister's MSW graduation, they were staying at the Palazzo on the Strip. There was one day during which I was there for both lunch and dinner, and both times, we ate at the Grand Lux Cafe. Hearing 'cafe', I'd thought we'd be eating some casual, simple cafe food... Um, there were truly 'cafe'-esque options on the menu, yes, but it was no ordinary, simpleton experience. Everything was extraordinarily scrumptious, even the fried chicken with waffles was superb! -- I would know, as I had it for lunch AND dinner, it was so freakin' good!

My honey-man had a fabulously nummy broiled pork loin with an apple, cranberry and peach chutney, and a vegetable saute and both garlic mashed potatoes and yummy mashed sweet potatoes
I don't remember what this was called, but it was loaded with fresh grapefruit and avocado and my father loved it
And behold, my nutty pecan fried chicken atop a perfect Belgian waffle with an uber yummy honey butter sauce (not pictured) and warm, pure maple syrup. The waffle had a perfect buttery crispness to its outside, yet a perfect inner texture, light and airy and soft, but not too dry = perfect!

Hey, you're not prego anymore, so you're not supposed to like crazy things like fried chicken with waffles anymore!
