I've been on a 'succotash salad' kick lately - it's great, pretty, and easy to make - and you can do it the day before!


1 pkg. frozen baby lima beans
1 pkg. frozen butter peas or butter beans or crowder peas
1 pkg frozen baby sweet corn (I use the white and yellow mixed)
1/2 cup each minced green, yellow and red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped red onion or scallion

Dressing -

1/3 cup sherry or apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper
2 cloves minced garlic

Whisk all that up well to dissolve the honey and salt, then add 2/3 cup olive oil, and whisk to emulsify. Pour over the veggies, toss well, cover and let sit overnight.

How about pecan pie,I have a strawberry pie recipe from a restaurant in Shreveport Louisiana, Mississippi Mud Cake, cucumber tea sandwiches, Pimento Cheese sandwiches, Frozen Fruit Cup Salad, Millionaire Salad.

Most of these recipes are from my grandma who lived in Louisiana. If you are interested in any of the recipes let me know and I will post them for you.

Mac & cheese was next. Tonite's dinner was fried pork chops, mac&cheese, applesauce, and honey cornbread.

BBQ is very southern, but they wanted something they could prepare the day before.

BBQ isn't the quickest dish to make, and it is best served fresh, especially ribs.

I don't think of any of these as particularly southern. Ate tons of all of them growing up in the Midwest (home of Jello salad).
