We’re not Southern, but have lived in the South for some time now. A lot of our meals have some staple Southern ingredients: sorghum, cornmeal, okra, grits, bourbon, bourbon, more bourbon.
This week’s menu capitalizes on some Southern and seasonal staples. The soup is rich and creamy, but doesn’t call for cream. Those of you in more Northern parts probably still have tomatoes. Ours are but a memory.

Everything looks great. Glad I don’t have to get the dots exactly right too. BUT… those sweet potatoes are screaming for me to make them in my kitchen!
Okra is one vegetable I simply cannot enjoy; I mean, what is that gelatinous snot that oozes out? Last weeks menu sounds delightful. Do you ever make the same thing twice?
You should see how often we have tacos!
Love the look of the bed of creamy greens!
Oh Lord those sweet potatoes look so good they are killing, I mean, inspiring, me!
Potato chunks in a mug … great presentation. 🙂 So many tasty meal ideas.
Yep, there’s that tomato soup of yours. It looks better now, for some reason. That’s probably because it’s the start of a good meal, perfect for a Sunday.
Everything looks so delicious – but those balsamic roasted sweet potatoes really caught my eye . . . .
The Roasted balsamic sweet potatoes recipe is awesome and presented in that coffee cup is genius!
I just got back from near Charleston, SC where one of my friends moved. I asked him “when do you consider yourself a local?”- and he couldn’t say when. When do you consider yourself a Southerner? I’m awfully curious if you ever “fit in” as one. As for being in/from Ohio, I’m just curious. 🙂
I think we could live here the rest of our lives and never quite fit in, nothing negative in that sentiment, just saying!
Fabulous from beginning to end.
Looks like a great supper to me! Those roasted sweet potatoes look pretty … sweet. (Har-har) And the bread pudding with whiskey sauce, why, that’s just amazing. Now are these Sunday suppers are team effort — or does one of you take the lead each week and make everything?
I beg to differ, when you can make fish like that.. YOU’RE SOUTHERN! You and Katherine need to accept that LOL
Darn it! I had just gotten over my craving for bread pudding. I think this means I have to make some. I’m going to cave! And those sweet potatoes….thank you for the reminder. I have some for tomorrow’s dinner. Now I know how I’ll whip them up.
Ooh I have sweet potatoes that I want to cook – thanks for the awesome recipe !
Oh Oh those balsamic potatoes look awesome!
