    Hmmm; maybe I'll just do a handstand while I rinse the shampoo lather out!

    So far I've only had it on eggs and it was delicious! My friend says she uses it on everything, so I'm eager to try it out on more foods. I'd never heard of it before, but there are even whole sites devoted to recipes using it. I had no idea!

    Unk, I was over 30 before I ever even heard of Cracker Barrel. I don't think it got to GA until fairly late, or if it did, I didn't know. My parents preferred Morrison's or S and S cafeteria if they took the family to eat, usually. But it didn't happen much!
    We had dinner at S&S the other night. Love going there. It's inexpensive and they have THE best mashed potatos.

    I think Cracker Barrel has gone downhill. Not as good as they were about 20 years ago.

    And yep, not everything fried in the South, but, if it's not fried, then it's cooked with pork fat.

    Bit of history. What is now known as Soul Food is Southern Food. There were two big migrations to the North from the South in the African American communities. Both happened around the time of both World Wars. The food that they ate in the South, they carried with them to the North. In the 1960's, the term Soul Food was coined to make that food part of the Black Power Movement.
    But down here, we don't call it Southern food or Soul food, we just call it: home cookin'

    I LOVE Cavender's and use it on just about anything and everything.

    I feel a pot of chili coming on very, very soon.

    Last time I made a crockpot full of chili, I got tired of eating it and tried it over elbow pasta... very nice!

    I never get tired of eating my chili! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacktime! I've never had chili made in a crockpot.

    Me, too! I've really eaten chili for breakfast, and I always say, "Well, who says you have to eat pig for breakfast anyway?" Never thought about it before, but I've never cooked it in a crockpot, either. Hmmm.

    I sometimes serve chili with rice, but usually I have buttered egg noodles on the side (my family prefers that). They mix it all up, yummy.

    My chili is accompanied by wheat spaghetti, which I dearly love.

    With all due respect to anyone who likes crockpot chili, that seems like it would be mushy, but I've also yet to experience it. So far, I prefer the control I have when it's cooked on top of the stove. (And don't forget the mushrooms and corn!)

    Ever since I got a Le Creuset dutch oven (I bought it for my husband, but I like it, too!), I almost never use the crock pot / slow cooker anymore. I dislike the lack of control with a slow cooker.

    I've read so many great reviews of the Le Creuset dutch oven (enamel on cast iron). Can you tell me how it performs differently than my Ductch oven (Allclad stainless steel anodized)?
