What's for Supper?

Hey Y'all!
I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day Weekend! I have 11 school days left and I was in a bit of a good mood today just thinking about THAT!
I cooked a great supper tonight!
Won't you pull up a chair at my table and eat with us?
Welcome to my Doublewide! Here's what's for supper tonight!First on the menu are some of the best deviled eggs you'll ever put in your mouth! Leave those pickles out of them though...that's just yucky!
Next I hope you'll enjoy some green beans from last years garden. I canned 97 quarts last year and we only have about a dozen or so left. They're so good because I seasoned them with Soul Food seasoning! It's found at The Dollar General and it sure does dress up some green beans!

Next I hope you'll find these stewed taters to your liking! Nothing's wrong with the picture--that's how much real butter goes into them just when they're starting to get good and soft!

For our meat item, we'll fry you up a good pork chop! No fancy seasonings or breadings, just some salt and pepper! That's my favorite way to eat a pork chop!
Tea's a brewin' too! This teapot was my mama's and it's the only way we know how to make tea.

For dessert, I've whipped you up a Red Velvet pound cake! I'll frost it when it cools off just a bit!
Biscuits should be done by the time you get here too!
Daddy just couldn't wait on the biscuits to get done before I caught him stealing a deviled egg!
See...I told you the frosting is just sitting there, waiting on the cake to cool. In case you're wondering, it's cream cheese frosting too! you are! Much better wouldn't you say?
Finally....I swanee y'all! This was the BEST pound cake I've ever made. I'm sure I'll be making more soon! My brother in law begged to take the whole thing home with him after supper! That's it! Seriously....come on over sometime! The more, the merrier!
Have a great day!
