Well, apparently hanging out with Uncle Bob has had a strong influence on most of us. I'm only 43% Yankee and have never lived even close to the Mason Dixon line. But, my grandma (who mostly raised me) was from West Virginia - does that count?

You can take the girl out of the South, but you can't take the 'South' out of the girl....

Not that you would want to try anyway!

I always thought I would end up marrying a country girl or southern gal, instead I ended up with a city chick...

Don't tell DW I said that!

So true, Uncle Bob. And my grandma was a wonderful southern cook. My sister and I have never been very successful in duplicating her recipes, which were never written down, of course. But now I have discovered (gasp) - LARD. And I feel like I am returning to my roots.....

I'm 85% Dixie even though I lived in Maryland, Delaware, Massachusetts and I was born in California. I've been in Texas longer than anywhere else so I guess it's pretty ingrained in me.
