I saw this posted on Facebook from friends here in Alabama and it suits me to a tee!
I was raised in Alabama where summer starts in April, we don't have fireflies, we have lightnin' bugs, rice and beans are vegetables, pecan pie, sweet potato pie & banana puddin is mandatory, y'all is a proper noun, chicken is always fried, biscuits come with gravy, sweet tea is the house wine, & someone is always getting their heart blessed.
It is so true ... I am always blessing someone's heart! I catch myself saying it all the time with my Southern drawl! LOL
We do drink sweet tea around here by the gallons. We have it with every meal.
As far as fireflies go I grew up calling them lightning bugs! We would catch them in a jar with holes punched in the lid and release them when it was time to get a bath for bed. It was just a sort of entertainment!
I used to fry all my chicken but in the last 10 years I mostly bake or grill our chicken. But gracious it is so good fried!!! I only changed to baking or grilling for health reasons.
We don't just have pecan pies during the holidays ... I make them all the time ...actually 2 weeks ago! And it was GOOD! Today I made banana pudding from scratch and it was so yummy!
And yes I do say Y'all all the time! It is just a southern thing!
I do know one thing you can take the girl out of the South but you can't take the South out of the girl!
I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend. Yesterday we worked in our veggie garden, flower garden and spreading bags of mulch in flower beds! It is May and our Alabama summer began in April. LOL
Thanks for visiting and God Bless!
