Around The World on a Plate

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!

Shrimp Etouffee!  Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler Cher!

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!”

Pork steak and shrimp
Kitchen sink shrimp and Grilled Pork Steak

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!

turkey
Thanksgiving Turkey

Baby, this turkey was browner than I am… and that takes some doing! It was juicy too!

Dressing-not stuffing

 

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!

Buttermilk pie

I couldn’t leave you without dessert!  Google any recipe for buttermilk pie; you can’t lose! Succulent!

Bonus:

bruschetta
Tomato, Garlic and Basil on Toast Crackers

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?

    All of your jazzy dishes look incredibly delicious. Each one appears so delectable to my taste buds. But, here’s the problem, I dislike cooking!!! With that said, here’s how plans for a meal occur at our humble abode most of the time. “What ya’ll want for dinner?” “Whatever!” “Carry outs?” ” We had carry outs last night!” So, now you ask, what’s on my plate? I say, ” Left overs.”
    But weight! For dessert the above bit of humor was added.

    1. First, thanks for reading and responding. Second, I am rolling on the floor laughing about your “leftovers” quip. Third, I LOVE leftovers! Basically, if I like something, I will eat it everyday until it’s all gone. Keep those comments coming! I really enjoy them!

  3. Imma Prince fan too! I’ve also visited a few interesting places in my military travels. My favorite place for food, just happened to have been my favorite locale as wells as my favorite for romance!!! The oh, so romantic, Izmir Bay, Turkey.

    The fare included some great seafood dishes, as well as lamb. Izmir adjoined the Aegean sea. The food, however had something of a Mediterranean flare. My favorite though was the “Iskander”. I have the recipe, but I haven’t tried It yet. Waiting for the right, “Romantic” situation. LOL
