There have been several mournful posts about homegenization, thank goodness we still don't have that problem where I'm at -east kentucky. Lets just say if you go into a bar around here dressed like some of the posters describe..well, you won't look quite as good leaving as you did entering lol. Is that a good thing? I won't say one way or the other, but it certainly is not Gentlemanly (is that a word? who cares, Im from Kentucky!-we just got running water last month, my first pair of shoes last week, an I kin reed ata thurd greyed levl!) behavior.

I'm not sure if many would even call where I live southern, perhaps instead saying its just redneck. To fit in around here you have to have worked tobacco fields or other type of farm at least once, be a member of or sympathetic to the NRA,hunt, are Christain or Jewish , speak english, and work. We'll still  be friendly to you if you don't fit into all these categories most times, but you won't fit into what people around here think of as the southern way.

I'm not sure how to define a southern gentleman though. To me, you have to display all the courtesy and friendliness that most the populaton exhibits while also having money.

Throw in mashed banana and you will have the "gritsified" favorite treat of Elvis Presley, another fine Southern gentleman from Tupelo, MS. I hear tell he was a purty good singer, too.

Fan , I am sorry to say I was not a fan of the gentleman but I love peanut butter and banana sandwiches .  Not fried though.  Funny thing a friend in high school who looked like Elvis or Rick Nelson take you pick depended on who  he was trying to look like that day introduced a bunch of us in a drama class to the sandwhich one day.  He would make them and share them with us for special events.  Been addicted ever since.  Never had them with grits though .

Congratulations, JDC!:):):)!   And, way to go, Susan.  ;):D  You are each something quite special.

(BTW, Susan, is Delaware in Northern, Central, or Southern California?  If you do not know what I mean, please see the earlier posts pertaining to this subject.)

Working for my own asshat,

Joanie

My wife fries up left over grits and seves them up w/ peanut butter on the side... I can tolerate grits but fried p w/ peanut butter they're quite good.

As to Southern gentry... can't say as anyone I have ever met who claimed to be one was anything but a lawyer in disguise.  Now I have met some real gents of the South and men who I consider as fine as any.  Same is true of the North.

Now Maurice's BBQ... oh yeah southern mustard BBQ w/ hash n rice... yeah, that's what I'm talking about!

Or Sonic... mmm Chili cheese fries and a cherry limeade.... yeah.

STOP IT!!!!  I'm trying to lose weight and all y'all ain't helping none all you're doing is making me hungry.

Johan I was about to say the same thing .  I am losing weight but the last couple of days have made me want to go have several of the mentioned food that are not on my food plan. 

There are no Sonics in southern California.  Nearest one is over the mountains on interstate five right before you get to Bakersfield. on the Taft Highway.  As you can tell I know right where it is .  Every trip north for past couple of years I stop there for lunch.  The other nearest Sonic is in Kingman Arizona.  right near the nearest Cracker Barrel.   okay I am stopping or I will be in my car and headed either north or east and I can't afford the gas right now let alone the calories.   sigh.

Mustard and BBQ sounds worse than grits and PB, the only REAL BBQ is down here in the Lone Star State, oh and to hijack this thread again, How about those Texas Aggies, oh and sixteeen to Sweet Sixteen!!!  And speaking of Sweet, that's the only way to drink tea sweet and iced (messed up Saxons and their hot tea!).

The only real BBQ is in Kansas City and Memphis. Others are great, ranging from close second to close approximation. Texas makes the list only in the eyes of Texans.

Insulting the meat by slatthering it in sickingly sweet sauce, is not BBQ!

Well you guys should come out here to California and have our Santa Maria Barbeque, not sauce on it , just seasoning and cooked over oak  fire  sliced into thin slices. Tri-tip  Pinquito beans,and fresh  salsa, it is soooo good.  The cowboys up in Visalia also add dutch oven cobbler for desert.   The style was started at the great rancheos here .   Yum.
