My partner might not be a Southerner, but I’ve gotten her hooked on sweet tea, catfish and boiled squash.
Sweet tea made well and properly iced is about the best thing ever. How anyone can not like this simply mystifies me.
The catfish doesn’t taste as good as it did when I used to catch it myself and we’d eat it fresh from the river, but it still is pretty delectable.
And boiled summer squash is one of the side dishes with the best ratio of taste to effort. Takes 10-12 minutes to make and tastes better than most things that take hours.
