Honey, you said it all!! Yesterday I prepared smothered porkchops with onions, macoroni and cheese with 3 different kinds o cheese,slow cooked green beans with a big hamhock simmering in it and homemade buttered rolls. For dessert we had a four layer lemon coconut cake. We were all about knocked out after that!!

Okay! Everybody's just about got everything covered, but in my family you can't serve all those great desserts, peach cobbler especially without a greaat big scoop of (preferably homemade) vanilla ice cream. Main course favorites are definitely Fired Chicken, Chicken fried Steak and Fried Catfish (...getting the pattern here? "FRIED!") Can be served up with mashed potatoes, potato salad, slaw, or baked mac&cheese. Must have fresh biscuits, cornbread or hot rolls!

My mother in law{a pain in the butt but I love her to death} always makes what she calls a poor man's dinner. She'll make soup beans, fried cornbread, fried potatoes and then she'll fry some cut up hot dogs with sauerkraut. I could live on this every day of the week. Thinking of it now, I may have to make it for dinner tomorrow!! Although my Mom and I were born and raised in Ohio we always save our bacon fat, have always made sweet potato cassarole and I was drinking sweet tea before I could walk!

Ya'll are making me miss my great-grandma so much!!! She was the best cook ever! I can still remember going to spend the night with her in Southern Ky. (Pleasant View/Williamsburg, close to Jellico, TN). I'd be awakened in the mornings by the smell of bacon and sausage frying and hot homemade biscuits and gravy and fried eggs, served "over easy"! As soon as breakfast was over, she was busy washing dishes and getting dinner prepared. I swear the woman spent her whole days doing nothing but cooking, cleaning and laundry! She didn't just cook a meal, either, it was always a feast! She'd have ham, fried chicken, mashed potatos, green beans, corn pudding, cornbread (with buttermilk to dip it in), chicken and dumplings (I've never had any that even begin to compare to hers!), mac 'n cheese, sliced tomatos and onions, and to top it all off, for dessert it was ALWAYS her Banana Pudding, made in the same big yellow bowl every time! I've tried to make chicken 'n dumplings, and it's pretty good, but nothing like hers was. Oh, and I hate seeing it made with canned biscuits. There's just no substituting for homemade dumplings! My Nanny (or grandmother) makes delicious fried squash and fried zucchini, and when my Papaw used to go fishing a lot, we would have the best fried catfish, mac 'n cheese and coleslaw! Oh, and homemade ice cream! I remember sitting on the old ice cream churn as a kid and fighting over who got to crank the handle! Yep, I'm gonna have to have a good old country meal here soon, and let my kids see what they're missing! icon_smile.gif Good luck with your meal!!!

Almost forgot, pinto beans slow cooked with a big ol' ham bone and pieces of ham in it. Now that it's getting cooler out, I made some home made vegetable soup the other night. I made it like my granny, just put in wahtever you have left over in the fridge! I started it with a can of tomatoes and okra my mom put up last year. It was SO good. Andy, yes, the chicken and dumplings are just to die for! I'm pretty good at making my Granny's chicken and dumplings now, so in the fall and winter we have that, chili beans and homemade veggie or potato soup, and pinto's.

We really do fry everything down here! Last year I went to an Oktoberfest in the mountains and actually tried a fried oreo and fried twinkie. Not too bad!
My husband says he'll leave me if I don't stop shopping....Lord, I'll miss that man!

Potatocakes, that's the same way my great grandmother cooked. Every meal was a feast and she spent most of her time in the kitchen. She never pulled leftovers from lunch out to serve at supper-time. She always had a homemade cake in the middle of her table. The dining room was the heart of the home. That's where eveyone gathered to talk from morning to bedtime. Hmmmm... I can smell her seafood gumbo now...
