My Hillbilly Cultures

To finish the story, fortunately my Dad still cooks some of the old Southern cooking. We had poke salad (really picked out of the yard), creamed corn, okra, ham, cornbread and lots more. He sent us off with pickled corn, which we love, however you have to grow up with it, to like it.
To see if a baby was truly country, my mom would let them taste pickled corn, my daughter loved it and my son hated it.

It is a little like the "dukes of hazard", that was Hollywood's version. Not exactly real. We have to look out for that in all aspects of life.

The best part of the south, it used to be called the Bible Belt, for a good reason. That is the part we need to hold on to.

Hello, thanks for visiting my blog and for following it too. I haven't online since last Thursday. My pc was not on its working condition.

And I love those things coming from your yard. Been to NC in 2005 and that's where I learned that southern part is called the Bible Belt.

Your family sounds very wonderful and loving. More families could learn how to treat one another by being with all of you. I think that I would like pickled corn, by the way! My Aunt's on my Dad's side were very big on down-home cooking. They would make their own noodles (boy, were they good!), homemade soups, stews, cobblers, bread, etc. I do miss getting together with all of them! :)

I live in the south in a few small town so I think I am pretty southern too. I have something for you on my blog.
