Okay, you've noticed.
Anyway, they came over early and we ate for hours. That's just what we do around here.
We started with homemade French fries:
Next up, bacon wrapped, stuffed jalapenos:
The next course was a mini Southern-BBQ snack, with two BBQ ribs, and a little piece of my fresh, buttermilk cornbread. Christopher whipped up the BBQ sauce, without a recipe, but it turned out perfectly. I'll get him to jot something down next time. We did the ribs in the slow-cooker all day.
Next, was a cauliflower soup. We made the soup the night before, because soup is always better the next day. We then let it simmer, very, very low, all day.
The main course was a perfect combination of dishes: fried chicken, coleslaw, mac & cheese, and baked beans.
Ahhhhh yeaaaah! Talkin' 'bout comfort food.
Then, we had to save room for dessert. That morning I whipped up a couple, including apple pie:
And berries on a cloud:
Well, I'm thinking our guests left full ... and that's always a good thing.
Happy Friday everyone! What do y'all have planned for the weekend?
(I'm southern now, I can say y'all).
