Homecoming

We had homecoming at my childhood church this past Sunday and I always look forward to that day each year. I always get to see a lot of old friends and get to meet new little ones.

But what happens when you ask a bunch of southern ladies to bring a covered dish for lunch after church homecoming services? A lot of butter, carbs, sugar and fried stuff - it's great. If you've never been to a southern church covered dish affair, you're missing out. Here are some of the typical dishes you'll find:

And then there's the infamous dessert table. My little guy wanted to start here first.

And so, I shall be working out twice as much this week...

  5. OH so very true.

    I am a northerner who married a big time southerner. I swear I gain 10 pounds...bad complexion everytime we go to his "home". But, how do all these southern women look so good and beautiful!

    The green beans in the south are double the calories of a Big Mac with all that grease and bacon..but it is good!

    I love the south!
