October 11 is Southern Food Heritage Day. Sponsored by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans, this holiday celebrates all that delicious food of the Southern United States.

biscuits and honeyI grew up in Texas. In other words, not the true South (although Texas, obviously, is better 🙂 ), but plenty close enough to smell it, and nothing beats Southern food for comfort food.

They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.”
Psalm 36:7-8
