1/22/2019 - National Southern Food Day Dinner

It's National Southern Food Day:

https://wjla.com/features/good-morni...with-chef-sedd

I've read that southern food is really African American food, as the slaves actually did the cooking.

Not sure if this is southern anywhere, but we're having honey sesame chicken, served over brown rice, nuked broc.

Pretty sure this is not southern. Though a pan of cornbread may well go with it, so that legally makes a difference.

I went to a neighborhood meat market the other day. Bought an in house smoked ham shank. Am simmering a pot of split peas soup for dinner tonight.

From what I've read about southern food, it is influenced by African American cuisine, also Native American, and many other cultures as well. Hmmm....I might have to search around for a book, as this does sound like a very interesting subject.

I'm planning on enchiladas and refried beans with salsa for dinner, but Tyler is out of school at noon all week, and it's a beautiful sunny day. We might spend the afternoon outside after all the rain we've had lately.

We’re having sous vide chicken breasts and a couple of sides TBD.

I am having some Tex-Mex food, with some fresh corn tortillas. Not really southern food, but close enough.

I pulled a bag of Greek meatballs out of the freezer. Trying to decide how to serve them and with what sides. The freezing temperatures we've had have made my romaine all bitter - yuck - so no salad. Some combo of onions, garlic, bell peppers, potatoes and canned tomatoes. Hmmm...

My lunch bunch had a great meal at a new restaurant owned by a friend of one of the members. It's an upscale Italian fusion place and we all thought the food was excellent. The location is great next to the downtown movie theater on Main St. so we went to see a movie too. Nice day.

Sooooo...I'll be heating up the leftover Mexican soup I made a couple nights ago. It's always better the second time around.

It is a melting pot. Just within Louisiana, you have creole food, which has a Caribbean vibe, and cajun, with a French Canadian history. Moving West to Texas you ran-into German settlers which is probably where our famous chicken-fried-steak originated. And further West, there emerged Tex-Mex.

Don't forget the southeast either, cd. Gullah cooking and other lowcountry foods from SC. Country cooking from the landlocked portions of the Carolinas, Georgia, etc. And Florida...where half the chains are transplants from up north, just like the residents.


Southern would have been good today - I've been wanting to make shrimp and grits lately. However, I cooked two soups and prepped two more on Sunday. Today's beef barley has been maturing in the fridge since Sunday, and MAN is it good!
