Here in the south there are some things that just define the culture. Some of those being the humidity (take note, southern women don't sweat, we "glisten"), the dialect (hun-neh and pah-dun, included), and especially important, the food. And be quite certain there "ain't" no one that can serve it up like someone's momma or grandmomma.
Those of you that were not lucky enough to be born in the south can cook like one, with the proper instructions, mind you. Today we are going to examine some of those essential and defining southern dishes. Pretty soon, you will be serving up a slice of cornbread and sweet tea like a southern belle. Ok, almost....we still need to work on that drawl. In the meantime....the dishes. Every Tuesday on my recipe blog, Plates and Places, I will introduce you to the fine art of southern cuisine.
Today's first introduction, Kiss my Grits. So be sure and drop by.
And finally...a smile
Typically on my blog, I share my own written post but today this story in the Shelby County Reporter caught my eye and made me smile. As Ann Murray sings in the song "A Little Good News", "We sure could use a little good news today".
This story is certain to put a smile on your face! Have a great day!
