My South

I recently read a blog from Mike a friend of my friend Heather (check my list of fellow bloggers). Anyway, his blog was on his "South." So here's My South. My South is home cooked food, fried chicken, peach cobbler (which I can no longer eat due to allergies), picking veggies and sitting snapping peas. My South is the family, Aunts, Uncles, cousins and all getting together for no reason, just to hang out and eat. My South is running around barefoot with friends until past dark, fishing, swimming in rivers til my hands and feet were all shriveled up. My South is driving to Tennessee through the mountains and stopping to collect natural spring water. My South is having to "find a switch" when I've misbehaved. My South is dancing to and singing Hank Williams "You're Cheatin' Heart" with my Papa. My South is just that...MY South. For all my southern friends, what's your South?

You'll see My South on Thursday... Well, my culinary South.

Sweet tea, pulled pork BBQ, roasted corn on the cob, watermelon, baked beans all eaten in the heat of the day, basking in the glow of friends and family.
