Living in the south has a lot of perks. I could really list for days about why I am thankful to be a southern boy born and raised, but today I was reminded of one of those top reasons.
Nothing beats it. I mean I can never get over the food around this place. I sometimes think about living on the east or west coast, but how could I live without southern food. While I was in Hawaii for a week I quickly learned they didn't make sweet tea and if they did it was no good. I almost didn't make it the whole week?! So yes, I have learned I am addicted to southern food & beverages, but I am proud of that.
Tonight we had my Bia (grandfather) down to eat dinner for Father"s Day because he was traveling for business on Sunday. My dad is a pretty good cook, as I have mentioned before, and tonight he made a traditional southern meal and I loved every bit of it! The best part were the friend green tomatoes. As we like to say in my house, "he split his britches"...now isn't that about as southern a saying as could be?????
*As a side note, I hate tomatoes with all my heart. Pretty much anything that has to do with tomatoes! I will eat pizza, but that is about it.
I do however like a fried green tomato every now and then because that is simply the southern way of life. I wouldn't be a true Southerner if I never ate a fried green tomato. They are apparently messy and hard to make, but always worth it.
Have you ever noticed how I never find it hard to be thankful for food? It's just so easy. If you like tomatoes and especially if you live in the South, I highly recommend you get a friend green tomato, and I highly recommend you be thankful for it. I love southern food and southern food loves me! It is just what I needed in the middle of the week. Now all I need is some fried chicken. Oh and yes, I had sweet tea with my meal. I'm full of good southern cooking and good southern thanks!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
