As previously discussed... Biblicly speaking, supper is the evening meal. Making breakfast and dinner the morning and afternoon meals respectively. While even we southrons are forgetting this, largely do to the invasion of yankeedom, the truth isn't determined by popular vote.
The traditional sundy dinner is fast disappearing, but we did get to enjoy it yesterday. My Mom and Dad got to come to church with us, and we ended up spending the better part of the day together. This of course included the production and partial injestion of an enormous meal. The perportions of Sundy Dinner are always out of whack though... if you're servin' 6 you make enough for 18. That's just the way it is. If ya didn't... what would ya eat on Wednesday?
While fire cooked meat or fried chicken are the unquestioned staples of Sundy Dinner in the South, we went a different way. We had:
Slow cooked Sirloin Roast with carrots: I'll not discuss the preparation for fear of inviting a flame war between the bitterly divided sects. You know who you are.
Mashed 'taters and Gravy: Real ones. Boil the taters... mix 'em up in the tactor (you call it a KitchenAid). We do this a little different to... we add about about 4 sticks of butter and some amount of ranch dressing mix. If you've never tried 'em this way I recommend it. Tastey. Gravy is thick to dammit.
Greenbeans. Fried in bacon grease and butter of course.
Texas Toast. Mmmmmmmmmm
Wash it all down with a tall glass of sweet tea... then break out the watermellon!
Eat like that... soak in the hot tub... watch the youngin's run around on a sunny spring day in the South.
That's Heaven right there y'all.
Steamed Squash. Lots of butter of course.
