Those of you on a diet are going to hate this thread but if I'm on a diet, talking about food seems to relieve the pressure.
One of my favorite meal is:
Meatloaf nice and light, made with tomatoes, just solid enough to hold together, NOT packed or dry Corn On The Cob cooked in the microwave Crowder Peas seasoned with smoked ham hock or bacon grease Green Beans seasoned with smoked ham hock or bacon grease, cooked way down Mashed Potatoes little butter, salt and pepper Onion Raw Sweet Yellow chunks or sliced Tomatoes sliced Tomato Relish for Crowder Peas, homemade, cooked down, slightly sweet, ever so slightly hot Cornbread with butter Sweet Ice Tea real light on the sugar
I cook up all of this and we'll eat on it for 3 days or so, then the Bullies get the leftovers.
I'm sure you'll notice there is no dessert. Don't throw a pot at me, I'd rather have another serving of a veggie as to have a dessert. I have this goofy idea that sugar makes my insides quiver.
