This weeks Travels in the South is brought to you by the mommy – snorts. Her and daddy went out over the weekend and she found a really awesome salad that was right up her alley. You see it in the picture? This was called the cornbread fried chicken salad. Can you say yum? Do you see those giant croutons surrounding the sides of the salad? That is cornbread cut into croutons. Now mom didn’t eat them *in* her salad. She ate them on the side. They were delicious. Dad didn’t care for them that much and mom was fine with that. She said it was more for her. Why were they so good? They had corn and jalapenos in them. Mom said they also had a tad of sugar that she could taste which cut down the heat of the jalapenos. And of course with mom’s love of fried chicken, having some chicken in her salad was absolutely heaven.
Was it all par for eating healthy? Probably not. But this date, it touched a special place in mom’s heart… and tummy.
