Good American food

Not an oxymoron but a reality. This might seem like an extraordinary statement given my usual railings against this cuisine but today I wanted to give praise to home style Southern country cookin'. At the Azalea Festival we stopped into a little cafe for lunch. See how many of these items from our lunch you can identify without having to look them up:

  • Sweet Georgia Brown

  • Hoppin' john

  • Fried okra

  • Shrimp and grits

  • Cheese sandwich with fruit

Okay I'll give you Lucy's lunch, the cheese sandwich, but the rest is pure Southern style food. And it was very good and we very much enjoy it! And we will miss our creamy grits when we move back to Oz.
