First up was chicken-fried steak, with mashed potatoes and red-eye gravy. We had roasted okra on the side.
This was our first time cooking both chicken-fried steak and okra, and both turned out really well. Okra is delicious!
On Saturday morning we were up bright and early. We made buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast.
Our friends Jessie and Chris gave us a bunch of tomatoes recently, and we used some of the green ones to make an afternoon snack of fried green tomatoes.
They were tasty dipped in the Cajun sauce that Christopher threw together.
Dinner on Saturday evening was chili with toppings, and some cornbread that we had made earlier in the day.
We froze the leftover chili and half of the cornbread to have for our lunches later this week.
This morning's breakfast was shrimp with cheesy grits.
That hearty breakfast kept us full for the whole day. This evening we made big dinner so we'd have a meal for tonight and lunches for Monday/ Tuesday. We had fried chicken, mac and cheese, baked beans, bacon-bourbon coleslaw, and cornbread.
And if that wasn't enough food and cooking for one weekend, we also made bananas foster for dessert.
Believe it or not, we didn't just
