Photohunt: Skinny

Category: , , , By Aleckii


This week's theme of had me searching up and down, far and wide for an idea. There's a myriad of adjectives that you can use to describe me or any aspects of my life but skinny is definitely not one of them!

But anyway, I read that you find inspiration in the littlest things in life, even in the chicken you're about to chop out for dinner! As I was about to clean the chicken and remove whatever excess fat and skin, suddenly something stuck me- Chicken skin... Chicken skin... skin... ny... SKINNY!

I just knew I had to post this!


That looks plenty lot and pretty nasty, doesn't it? And to think the chicken wasn't that big at all (weighs about a kilo).

But afterwards I had a great dinner- Fried Chicken with Korean salad.


Have fun photohunting!

    Oh but the food looks delicious though!
    We met Amelia, the insect on my Photohunt entry when we were on holliday in the south of France!
    We live in the north of Belgium, and I'm not sure we have them in our country or not, I have never seen any here!

    Pailine: You're right! They are, apparently the skin and fatty part are quite deleterious to your health. I am very good at storing fat too! Hahah! That's why you don't see me posting a picture of myself for 'skinny'. If you don't mind, can you leave a link please, I would like to visit your blog too sometime.

    ad: I think everybody loves it. There's this one episode on South Park, where Eric Carmen ate all the fried crispy skin off the KFC chicken. It was the last straw, they all finally thought that this was the WORST possibly thing to do to a friend. Hahah! Don't you ever steal the fried skin off my chicken!

    jientju: Hahha! Well Amelia looks great. In Malaysia we have plenty of insects and bugs, some exotic and lovely like Amelia, but much more often they are irritating (mosquitoes and flies)!

    Interesting take on this week's theme! I'm not much of fan of chicken skin, though it sometimes tastes good when deep fried.
  9. Xandra January 12, 2008 at 6:08 AM
    I'm thinking that I like the second pics better than the first! Clever word play!

    the fried chicken and the korean salad are appetizing, but the chicken skin... maybe can use for cooking chicken rice
    hahaha
