I can see a wonderful porch supper, summer time's best. For the menu you choose the buttermilk fried chicken, the buttermilk biscuits (both listed here), perhaps corn on the cob and/or a salad and then finish with this ice cream:
2 cups strawberries..wash, drain, a quick whiz in the food processor, or mash well with potato masher.
2 cups buttermilk... stir in
1 cup sugar.. stir in
1 teas vanilla ... stir in
follow whatever instructions you use for making ice cream.
And now you must invite us all over.
Or, I suppose you could freeze it in 1 cup increments.

Chicken and Biscuits. Marinate the chicken parts in buttermilk for an hour or four, and, and follow your favorite coating recipe after that. Use the remaining one cup to make buttermilk biscuits, which can be made from scratch easily. A classic.
Tyler Florence has a great fried chicken recipe on the FoodNetwork web site.
