    Southern Style Cooking...

    Sorry, but I just don't like southern style cooking. I've lived in the south practically all my life and just can't get used to it.
    Boiled okra on top of crowder peas, mustard greens, turnip greens, black eyed peas, chick peas, pinto beans, poke salet, chicken gizzards, cracklins, chitlins, streak-olean, fat back, fried pork skins, tripe, baked possum cooked with sweet taters, fried rattle snake, hog nuts, pickled souse meat with hog ears and snouts, scrambled eggs with onions, stewed lights, scrambled eggs with hog brains, sweet potato pie, moon pies, sweet potato pudding, etc. all SUCK. And, that goes for southern fried chicken as it's usually cooked in too much lard.

    Hence why I keep a wok on hand. I live about 20 miles from the Chitlin Strut but there's no way I'm eating anything that smells THAT bad when it's being cooked.

    Now I don't know too many folks that eat that crap anymore. No one can tell me that country-fried steak isn't the closest thing to ambrosia on this side of the world. Especially with fried okra and bissits... mmmmm

    Scrambled eggs with onions and green peppers along with your choice of meat (bacon, sausage, ham, or steak) and home fries with cheddar cheese would be good. The hog brain and scrambled eggs doesn't sound all that appealing.

    Several of these dishes I have never heard nor tasted. I don't think I want too. Where's Mickey?

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    hmmm... I don't live in the South, and never have... But I remember seeing a fast food place down there once: "Biscuit World". Looked like a chain place, don't know if it was. Still, seemed very Southern.

    I'm in rancher country out here. Lots of beef. Works well for me, but the hippie-vegetarian fiance has a bit more trouble.

    No trouble, you have her eat the salad that comes with your steak and baked potato with extra butter and sour cream. See? Problem solved.

    I've lived in Tennessee and Kentucky all my life, and I've never eaten anything off the list in the original post but fried chicken(not fried in lard), sweet potato pie, and moon pies.

    In my area, most of that list would be considered "soul food" instead of southern food.

    We eat fried okra on occasion, but I wouldn't even try to eat boiled okra.

    Southern comedian Jerry Clower even had a skit about a guy who claimed to feed boiled okra to his hunting dogs. Another person tells the hunter,"I didn't think even a dog would eat boiled okra", and the hunter replies "they'll eat anything once they get hungry enough.".
    Apologies to any Clower fans if I didn't get the quote 100% correct.

    On a side note- some of Jerry Clower's family lives in my city.

    All of them super nice people.

    The greens, chickpeas and sweet taters are good. I finally got brave enough to try collard greens a couple years ago and I'm hooked. The mystery meat stuff I'll pass on though.

    If you're ever passing through the west and stop in Denver to eat, avoid the Rocky Mountain Oysters. Not just the southern food that can be scary.

    For a major project at work several years ago, I had to do a food tour in the South to learn the profiles of authentic Southern cooking. This meant going to lots of mom and pop places and trying almost everything. I've tasted everything on that list except possum, brains, ears and snouts. Some of it was quite good and I still eat it from time to time, other things I hope I never have to see again.

    I'm a southern gal at heart (born and raised)! I love okra (boiled or fried) and black-eye peas. When I was a kid, I loved shelling them. Back then they were called purple hull peas. And I still do the chicken gizzards and cracklins (when I can find them).

    I think I just threw up a little bit. I totally agree with you on this one, Esteda. Nasty. The worst of it is, how hard it is to find and get normal food for home.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    You mean before people were expected to eat that stuff SOBER???? I mean, come on, I've eaten some foreign food that had unknown origins, but damn, this is deep fried pork intestines. Only proper use for those is sausage casings, because you can't taste them then.

    And the SMELL!! I think I'm going to be sick from a sense memory.
