STAR CAFE WAITRESS CLAUDIA HICKS BROUGHT ME THIS VERY SPECIAL DISH ON A VERY SPECIAL DAY.

WAITRESS CLAUDIA HICKS STILL SEEMS CONFUSED AS SHE BRINGS ME THIS VERY SPECIAL DISH ON THIS VERY SPECIAL DAY.

The Texas Legislature designated Oct. 26 as Chicken Fried Steak Day, but it’s a holiday that hasn’t exactly been embraced by the grease-grubbing public yet.

As soon as I heard the big news, I hightailed it to The Star Cafe for some chicken fried steak, expecting a long line of gravy-slurping fatties waiting in line for lunch. Nope. Just the regular crowd.

Waitress Claudia Hicks wasn’t even aware of today’s importance.

“This is Chicken Fried Steak Day!” I exclaimed.

“No, today’s special is meat loaf,” Hicks replied.

“I mean, it’s Chicken Fried Steak Day,” I stammered before realizing that people don’t hear capital letters.  “A state holiday. Big day…big times..big fun… .”

Hicks stared at me with a combination of confusion and sympathy. Apparently the Legislature forgot to tell all the chicken fried steak slingers around the state about the celebration.

I was expecting a discount on chicken fried, not a blank stare. But Claudia brought my lunch a short time later and it was excellent. Star Cafe knows a thing or two about food.

I don’t see CFS Day overtaking Christmas anytime soon, but it’s now one of my favorite holidays. Just look at my plate.
