Yummy, steakburgers. My husband has a serious addiction to Steak & Shake. In his office, he has a photograph of the Steak & Shake sign from a now closed Champaign-Urbana restaurant.


No way! I know exactly where that now closed restaurant is! I lived there off and on for ten years through college and beyone. It was the campustown location, I believe. It was robbed about every other week - it's never a good sign when you're dining in a place where there's a yardstick on the door so the staff can tell the police how tall the robber was. Once after a 1950s skit, about thirty of us still in costume swamped the place. We'd sent a runner ahead to tell them to start making the chocolate malts now, but they didn't believe us until we all showed up in our poodle skits and saddle shoes.

That's okay - us upper Midwesterners have been keeping Culvers to ourselves. That's always a treat when I head back to see the family.

Thanks, My Friend! You have just highlighted another wonderful South Georgia attitude! If you will allow me, I will try to "marry" the two cultures to illustrate.

"Iffen Ken is kin,then sure I ken Ken! However, iffen Ken ain't kin, then you kin 'bark up another tree'. Ya ken?" :}

Now, now - most of the folks making those laws (or trying to make them) are from Middle and South Georgia and the mountains.

I remember a few years ago we had a bill that required restaurants to serve sweet tea - and then defined sweet tea to make sure the sugar was stirred in while the tea was hot.

Southern food is starting to hit mainstream: there's a Krispy Kreme on Long Island, Waffle Houses out west, and now McDonald's has stolen Chick-fil-A's sacred chicken sandwich. Next thing you know, there'll be a Stuckey's in Times Square.


We have Chik-fil-A in Denver. My co-workers go crazy over chicken biscuits.

If she was served hot tea she considered it northern. If she was served iced tea she considered it southern. If she was asked which type she considered it boundary areas. I saw the resulting maps, and they were quite interesting.


Sweet or unsweet?

I was at a Dennys in Alabama years ago and they didn't have sweet tea!!! What the he!!... we're supposed to be in the south and you don't have sweet tea!!! We came to the conclusion that aliens had taken over Alabama (no offense to those of you who live there).

Born and raised in SOUTH Carolina... with emphasis on the SOUTH... North Carolina is full of a bunch of Yankees... I should know, I married one... and yes, she's from Raleigh. We went camping in the lowcountry this past weekend and my roots came out in full force. The so-called southerners I was with made up what they called "scary eggs". It was a concoction of scrambled eggs, cut link sausages and cheese... This not "scary" for a true southerner, it's merely a good start. While my counterparts began eating their "scary eggs", I mixed up a batch of what was later called "scarier eggs".

Using the "scary eggs" as a base, I proceeded to cook a few shrimp on the campfire, cut them up and add them to the "scary eggs" along with some bacon and grits.... mmmm mmmm good!!! They looked at me like I was crazy and that's right.... they're from NORTH Carolina!!!

SUTHERN AND PROUD OF IT!!!

a few points to add:

- born in la (that's lower alabama, as someone has already pointed out)
- lived all over the south
- eaten everything listed so far, save the "oysters"
- love grits, but w/ sausage & Tony Chachere's Origian Creole Seasoning
- put Tony Chachere's Origian Creole Seasoning on everything
- was told when moving from Mobile, AL that i was leaving the south because Raleigh, NC was in North carolina...
- miss the fried pickles and pickeled onions from Cock of the Walk back in Mobile (can i get an amen, leroy?)
- i love how certain "southern" words are actually proper english in Canada & UK (learnt, spelt, et al)

i could go on and on...

edit: and i thought the phrase was "get what you can, can what you get, then sit on the can..."

Florida is southern Ohio. And another way to know a southerner is how he/she eats grits.


Butter & salt!
I like mine with honey and pepper


I like mine to not be on my plate or anywhere near my mouth. Yuck! lol. I've lived in the south for 14 years but I guess maybe my massachusetts side still shines through.


edited to add: I love sweet tea now! ;)
