Thanksgiving dinner. Could there be any other meal in United States households that is more anticipated? Perhaps Easter and Christmas are close behind, but for Thanksgiving, gathering around the table with family for some good home cooked food has been widely commercialized for years, tradition for decades, and part of most American’s social fabric. Gathering with our family and friends around a table full of delicacies, casseroles and of course the turkey, is part of what makes the holiday season so special for so many of us these days.
Many of us start to plan our Thanksgiving meals well in advance for 23rd of November. Decorating for the Christmas season might be last on the list of things to do – except for perhaps putting up the Christmas tree. We’ll start cleaning our vegetables and even perhaps the chitterlings (not me though, I don’t eat that stuff, lol) days before. The smell of warm apple and sweet potato pies, glazed ham and fried chicken is definitely a temptation to be had! So, if you’re family is like mine and is planning the perfect Thanksgiving dinner, what items are your menu must-haves? View Post
Are you up to cooking a hearty main-dish tonight that is super easy to prepare and doesn’t take long to fix? Meat loaf is my go-to meal. Paired with mashed potatoes and corn, or perhaps macaroni and cheese and a fresh salad – it’s hearty, tasty, and will definitely fill you up! Usually prepared with crackers or toast, I personally prefer to use Stove Top Stuffing mix now a days when cooking meatloaf. With the added spices, it just makes the meal so so good! Check out the easy to follow recipe below.
Do ya wanna know what’t the best southern snack in the world? Well, at least according to me??
Fried Green Tomatoes!
I just love eating them, especially first thing out of the skillet. They are just soooo good, and very simple to make. Add a little of Frank’s red hot to the mix, and these are banging!
With just a handful of ingredients – corn meal, eggs, salt, garlic powder and pepper, canola oil, and of course your fresh green tomatoes, you too can enjoy this super easy and quick side dish / snack / meal. I don’t know who ever came up with this fabulous idea way back when but, I thank them for it!! 😉 View Post
