Are you hungry?

If so this post isn't for you!

My mama san called me a few minutes ago and wanted to discuss the menu for the 'Bridal Dinner' that will take place the Friday before the wedding.
We wanted a very southern spread and with that in mind we started naming off all sorts of yummy dishes.
Here's what we have in mind...

Okay, so we're talking salad, buttermilk fried chicken strips, deviled eggs, fried green tomatoes, green beans, new potatoes, squash casserole & cornbread muffins my friends!

Sound like a lot? Well that's the way it's done in the South.
I grew up having at least 2-3 sides.
I never realized this was a lot until Pepe questioned me for wanting to have beans, corn, potatoes and rolls with our grilled chicken!
Thank goodness I had a good metabolism growing up. ;)

My mama can cook!!! Truly!
If you haven't had green beans with fat back (if you don't know, don't ask) you don't know what your missing!

So what do you think? Sound yummy?
One guarantee it will all be fresh and completely homemade!


  1. Hey Ems, so I just found your blog and I love it. Anyway, when I saw the pictures - I just knew that the green bean picture was not what you would actually serve. Because Southern Style green beans don't look like that! love you and we need to go to lunch soon. Tams
