Southern Fried Fun

Proving that Southern hospitality is alive- and very well, my friends {both from well below the Mason Dixon} hosted a wonderful dinner last night to celebrate Southern cooking.

The idea started with me asking so many questions about the foods they grew up with and boy did they serve up some treats! We dined on everything from fried okra to grits and greens casserole and even johnny cakes. I learned how to really use my cast iron skillet and more importantly, walked away with an immense appreciation for the sweetness of my Southern friends.

IN 5th grade I invited Meredith Pope over for a sleep over, and her parents only allowed her because my Dad was cooking gumbo that weekend and her mom thought it would be a 'cultural experience' if she stayed the night at our house. OMG. that still cracks me up/weirds me out to this day! Us southerners aren't that foreign are we?!

Meg, that story cracks me up- and no, ya'll aren't weird. In fact, I feel quite the contrary. I can't believe I missed out on all this goodness growing up and since moving below the mason dixon have lamented why I didn't do it sooner!
