Just add rice pudding for dessert and you've got the perfect high fat meal. I would then consult with a Cardiologist.

Mudcat, ya left out one of the best greens. Have ya ever tried rutabega greens? I jist discovered'em a couple years ago, and Danged if I don't like'em better than turnips or mustards. The roots is great, too, but they're worth growin' just for the greens.

My Mom used to make tomato gravy to go with fried tomatoes. My memory gets my mouth to watering, but with this drought and grass hoppers here in SD there aren't many tomatoes. I sure wish we could have a decent winter here. Then I could really enjoy some good stuff like biscuits and gravy. By the way, Mudcat, don't ever ask for biscuits and sausage gravy in Los Angeles. You won't ever get over the culture shock. I can't imagine what the truckers do when they get there. I thought I-HOP would be safe. Course that's where most of those PETA folks hang out and what do they know.

I haven't had any of that food since I left the Navy 50 years ago. How about gizzard greens?

WHOOPS! I fergot fried green maters!!! Here is a new recipe I came up with for green maters. first you chop up some bacon, and onions. fry up the bacon and saute the onions in the bacon and grease.then you chop up your green tomatoes and put them in the frying pan (neeed to use a cast iron pan) mix it all up and salt and pepper to taste. put the lid on the pan and let it simmer in it's own juice, stirring till it is done.

Thanks, mudcat fer that new recipe for green maters. My ducks keep finding new ways into the garden and knocking a green one off the vine now and then. So, I needed a new idee!

My cholesterol went up 30 points just reading that!


Useta eat like that when I worked on the farm. Hired out to a dairy farmer most summers, started chores at 4 AM, and when breakfast was served at 8 or so, steak and eggs and homefries and apple pie and coffee just seemed normal. Lordy, if I ate like that now, I'd need a forklift to move...

Les, cathead biskits (biscuits) Is a biscuit,made by any good good cook's recipe, it is just a big biscuit, 'bout big as a cat's head. I listed grits with tomato gravy, But grits are good any way, with butter on them, mixed with eggs, with ham grease on them etc etc.

Grits are harder to come by here than hens teeth. Does any one have a recipe for cheese grits. A woman I worked with in Brooksville FL used to make some and they were absolutely divine.
There are two three of us transplants here would love the recipe. Please e-mail the recipe to me. I don't have a spam block which will send your letter back to me. Just type Grits in the message space, cause I just don't open all e-mail which comes to me

Cathead biskits deserve more of a explanation than that!

Ya know how a big, ol' yeller tomcat's head gits kinda flat on top, with big jowls pokin' out, an' tha whole thing is kinda lumpy lookin'? Well, that's what a cathead biskit looks like. A proper one, laid in tha palm of yer hand, will hang out on both sides. If partaken of in a timely manner, a big cloud of steam will eminate from within, when ya split it open to apply tha cow-salve butter, just before ya pour tha cane syrup all over it. 'Course, if yer gonna soak it down with gravy, ya kin leave tha butter off.
Catheads make a great instrument fer pushin' peas up on yer knife, too(a little honey on tha knife helps keep tha peas from fallin' off). Ya got ta remember ta bite off about 2 inches of biskit, before ya shove up tha next knifeload of peas. A feller can go through quite a pile of biskits thisaway.
