As we have all gotten older and many cousins have started their own families and traditions, our Christmas celebration has changed. Now, dinner has become a group of 10-12 friends and families that is prepared by my sister Stephanie and myself. We will spend weeks-no, months- planning the menu and talking out scenarios. This year, we decided on a Southern theme. All inspired by Doug Adam's amazing fried chicken I had at Feast!!
The dinner was delicious and I have every intention of remaking the Fried Chicken and Mac-N-Cheese for recipe posts. And the Mississippi Mud Bomb post will be up later this week!
My mother always does a great job setting the table!
Mac-N-Cheese should always have a potato chip topping. Trust.
Before this beauty went in the oven.
Jingle Bells or Cheese Ball??
I've made this more than once since; so good!
The bubbly, crispy, delicious Mac-N-Cheese.
Spicy, crispy fried chicken!
Mari-Brined* for 24-hours
*a made up term to explaining brining and marinading.
Corn bread. Always and forever.
Simple green beans for the win!
Trust me, so delicious!
A dessert trio! My photography skills started to slip at this point due to my food coma.
