This fancy glass of Alligator Swamp Water made me happy... ...and not just because it had alcohol in it!
My mother and I had a few friends over to my house to eat Southern inspired food and watch The Help. Everybody brought something for our feast.
We had pimento cheese spread (I could almost cry that it's gone), deviled eggs, fried chicken, jumbalaya, fried okra, tomato pie, greens, buttermilk pie,
(A huge thanks to Ricki Jill from Art@Home for the recipe. I hope this is similar to what it is supposed to look like.)
apple pudding, lemonade, and sweet tea (one with and one without alcohol).
I'm cracking myself up over here. Before I even read down I was saying to myself, "there had better be some alcohol in there...."ReplyDelete
Excuse me, I have to get a baby wipe to clean up all the drool on my keyboard...
OK, now I'm hungry. I am a transplant from the North that now lives in Georgia. All of that stuff looks so yummy, but what exactly is Alligator swap water?ReplyDelete
So i just got your response today because it went into my spam! I am from Michigan:) I think the thing I miss most besides my friends and certain foods is the fact that people there knew how to drive.Delete
I have to say Swamp Water sounds a lot better than well, it sounded;)
I wasn't invited??!!?? I would have brought Krispy Kreme donuts.ReplyDelete
I think I'm going to have to host a Help party just for the food! When you get to the letter R, I think you should share the Recipes!ReplyDelete
I haven't read The Help yet! I have to read the book first, which is still sitting unread on my night table.ReplyDelete
You SO have to read the Help. It is fantastic:)Delete
Tomato pie? Curious minds want to know!ReplyDelete
Alligator Swap Water: a bottle of Midori liqueur, add orange juice until it looks like the color of swamp water. Mighty tasty!!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Debbie! Sounds yummy!Delete
