This man of mine has come a long way. In the early years of our marriage, we ate not only the typical American diet, but also truly enjoyed the best of Southern love. I had been told by my pastor's wife that a good wife cooks biscuits for her man. You know...cooking to please the man of your dreams. Biscuits and gravy...biscuits and sausage...biscuits with "yellow label" syrup...biscuits with hoop cheese and sausage... You get my point.
We have both benefited from the changes and hope that some of those changes have helped to shape long term health habits of our children.
Sunday breakfast (Valentine's day) in keeping with the theme of LOVE and RED....out came the Southern Love....Biscuits, Hoop Cheese and Red Hots (eggs and cheese grits too). When it comes to diets....it is what you eat 90% of the time that makes a difference. It is ok to enjoy these things on special occasions. I try to remind myself that there are many other ways to share my "Southern Love"!!!!
