Why is it that when we think of Southern Foods, we think deep-fried. Those Southern people will deep fry anything, right? Well, yes and no. Deep frying isn’t as much a regional thing as it is a poverty thing.

Good quality ingredients make all the difference in the world, be it cooking from scratch, or in this case, packaged foods. A few years back I discovered Giovanni Rana Pastas. You’ll find them in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. The price is a bit of a shock when you compare it to other prepackaged pastas – nearly twice the price.

Many moons ago, a restaurant and brewer opened just down the street from where we were living at the time. They brewed the usual – beer. They also brewed some of the most incredible Root Beer I have ever tasted. Hubby and I are not beer consumers. As for Kiddo, now that he is of the legal age to drink, he doesn’t mind a draft every now and then. However; he is our child – with a weakness for top-shelf Margaritas and a good Merlot. When it comes to wines, he’s become a bit of a snob. He feels the cork, sniffs and swirls, giving the illusion that he has been drinking wines for eons, and that he knows exactly what he is doing. Like Hubby, Kiddo prefers a red that is deep and full-bodied, the product the small berries of Cabernet Sauvignon, while I prefer the more delicate fruit of the Pinot Noir vine.
