Celebrating Southern: {food and beverage}

Hope you have had a wonderful Tuesday. Mine was filled with sweet smiles from this girl. She was a joy to keep today. Love you, Maddie!  

Lets talk food and beverages!

Southern folks love us some food. Our churches revolve around God, duh, and food. Seriously, we have fellowship all the time to celebrate life and the good things that our Lord blesses us with.

My family loves fried chicken, green beans wrapped in bacon, fried potatoes, potato patties, hashbrowns, (pretty much any potato), macaroni and cheese, and pretty much any vegetable as long as it is fried.  Are you noticing a pattern here?

Beverages in the South. Sweet tea what else is there? Actually Diet Coke or Coke is a super popular drink. Now, lets set this straight. In the South if you say a Coke that doesn't necessarily mean that we would like a "Coke" product. We could be talking about Pepsi, or anything that fizzes. We don't usually clarify until something is said. Just a heads up.

Being from the South is one of my favorite things. I love all the things that sets us apart, even if it does make us a very obese part of the country. So.be.it.

Can't wait to see your ideas about being Southern.

Loud and proud!
