I am so sorry but, my God, I love a good Prince reference! For those of you who are confused, the title of this post is a play on Prince’s “Around the World in a Day.” Of course, die-hard Prince fans knew this instantly.
Sorry for the digression!
Today I am sharing pictures of dishes that I prepared in the past year or so. I will admit that I got pretty jazzy! Meaning, I opted to cook things that are out of the norm for some of us Southern folks. You see, around these parts, it’s best to play it pretty safe! You know, stick with the usual suspects like fried, baked or barbecued chicken, pork, steak, etc. You will soon see that I chose NOT to play that game!
Check this out!
In other words! “Let the good times roll!” Yass baby! I made this myself! I learned how to make it by watching a family friend who is from Zachary, LA.
I mean…what else do I need to say about ANY kinda fried rice? One word: “Bomb!”
I used everything but the kitchen sink to season these skrimps! Yes, I meant to spell it that way!
Okay, for those of you who like more traditional foods, I got you too!
The veggies were cooked to death! But still good!
Baby, this turkey was browner than I am… and that takes some doing! It was juicy too!
Sorry for the IPhone shadow, but I think you get the gist! Melt in your mouth!
All of the ham hocks were gone by the time I took this picture; yeah, we ate ’em!
I couldn’t leave you without dessert! Google any recipe for buttermilk pie; you can’t lose! Succulent!
My daughter had this for lunch today; she loves it! If my mom had packed this for my lunch, I would have cried all the way to school and back!
At any rate, I hope you enjoyed checking out my work! By the way, I am sure that my dear cousin Annie is snoring by now since she has already seen these.
No matter, I thought the rest of you might like a quick gander at my culinary projects!
What’s on your plate?
