Blackeyed Peas with Turkey Necks
Poke Salad Greens with Hog Jowl
Fried Corn Pone
And best of all--Dallas Co. Home Brew!
Wish you were here to enjoy with us.

Dear Mom of the "other red-head",

I wish I were there too, so I could enjoy all the wild game - and meet the cute hunter who I assume is providing most of it!

Mmm, mmm - kudzu Jelly sauce! Not too sure about the possum or Coon - but will rely on your word they're good!

Hope your Christmas was great and filled with "Grace". Can't wait to hear about it ... you'll need "support" on Wednesday, right?

The spread looks great! I love your shrimp picayune and that will definitely be a big hit. The curried mushroom turnovers sound interesting. Is it a recipe you made up?

Talk Soon,
