"How ya'll are? I'm glad for you to see me, I guarantee!"
This was the greeting of a southern cook name, Justin Wilson from South Louisiana.
Justin is deceased now, but I want you to know from those old television shows, I learned a lot about southern cooking. I've been busy in the kitcken today. This morning I made scones, but I didn't cut them in the pie shape they are suppose to be, (I rarely do) rather, I used my biscuit cutter. I had a taste for them with cream cheese and blackberry jam. Coffee went better with them than tea this morning.
After sitting and enjoying them on a cool morning with James; Ashley, Amanda and Lovie my fur-babies...
the hubster came in while I was relaxing in my rocker and announced, "What's for lunch?" I could have hit the ceiling! What do you mean...for lunch, you just had brunch! "I know, but I'm hungry for some...you know...FOOD!" I guess he thought he was eating HAY or something earlier, Huh?
Well, I finally got up and put together a menu, Greek Chicken-with-olives and oregano; Black-Eyed-Peas with ham, Rice with homemade Gravy, Cornbread; and, an Apple,Carrot, Raisin Salad.
This is a hungry man's menu and the plate, or should I say platter is full. I told him not to kill himself eating so much, but, Lord, I love to see a hungry man eat my food! Even his brother who came to visit just in time!
When I put this peach cobbler on the table with a cup of coffee, that ole' bro-in-law thought he'd died and gon' to glory! That's what he told me! Seconds, thirds, and I had to hide my cobbler! That ole' boy tried to eat the 'hole thing!
Well, I hope he got a belly full because it will be a long time before he put those 12's under my table again! I guarantee! I mean it and I tol' James! Ya'll know I like to have fun...don't you? But, I'm serious about this!
I hope you're having a good ole' time this weekend! And if you're not cooking, then, I guess you're the ones who have won! LOL! Take care now, and remember, James and Loretta care for you too! Bye now...
