Southern food...any suggestions?

Hi, I'm going to a potluck and the theme is Southern food. Any suggestions? I need it to be a dish I can completely prepare the night before since I have to work the day of the party.

Any ideas??

You're going to have to give us a little more info on what you want to make - main dish, side dish, dessert, salad, etc. I've got 3 Southern Living annual cookbooks, a copy of Southern Cooking by Henrietta Dull, and a few more. Don't mind helping you with one but Don't have the time to type in probably 3,000+ recipes.

Southern food to me means fried or with bacon or some other vile thing called fatback. =/ I can't even safely order green beans around here. hahaha

Ok, I guess I should at least give a half-way serious answer. I'll brainstorm ~ Blackeyed peas! Collard greens! Grits! mmm Pecans! okra!? Collard greens! red velvet cake! Southern Comfort & Jack Daniels! Sweet tea! (ewww) and ummmm oh, spicey good Cajun food with crawfish!

I've got a cook book called The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook and looked through it but didn't come up with as many good ideas as you all tossed around. I haven't been assigned to make anything specific yet. Whatever I want. I will have to call the host and find out how many people are coming. Thanks for all of the ideas! So far I'm leaning towards: corn bread, red velvet cake or collard greens. Those all seem like dishes I can make the night before.

Thanks a lot for all the ideas!

Well dang, I can't add anything to the list!! It looks like y'all got it all covered! The only thing I don't see listed is lemonade, so, I'll add that.
