I'm spending two weeks at my parents' place in Jackson, Tennessee before heading to the city. This is a great place to relax because there is little to no cell phone service, we get one channel on TV, and they only have one neighbor who's about 1/4 mile away.
It's relaxing, but my gosh, I'm probably going to gain 10 pounds! We went on a lunch cruise for my mom's 60th birthday, and here was the menu...Catfish, hush puppies, baked beans, fried potatoes, "slaw", and lemon pie for dessert. For lunch!
Here's another Southern tradition-- we prayed before we ate. We asked for god's blessing, but I secretly prayed for no cellulite.
