Last Meal?

Last year a book came on the market asking famous chef's what would be their last meal.  Because no one asked you and me,here we go. This is the meal that would represent my life on earth.  No, it would not be a famous restaurant in Paris, Napa or New York, sorry.  It would be my mamma's baptism in oil fried chicken, pan gravy, macaroni pie, and finishing with chocolate cake.  I am a simple man, I have never forgotten where I came from. Not that I'm far from where I came from in the first place.  So I ask you out in the void of the Internet what would be your last meal here on earth?

What is Southern Food?

Southern food, what does that mean to you? To me it means sweet tea, screen doors and a nice humid summer night. But you say it's winter. I know but that's what keeps me going, waiting to see the fireflies and the smell of Mamma's Sunday fried chicken. As I sit here in January reflecting the year past. I let my mind wander to times that were simpler. I wish I could see my Grandmother again and taste her country style steak and gravy. I still catch smells that bring back many memories, be it chocolate cake, country sausage or even cornbread. This year I want to slow down and really find what southern food means to you. Does it mean Church picnics ,potlucks or fish fries after a day at the lake? As the year goes by please let me know what southern food is to you. Lets have a great year.
