I can’t help but notice that my mentioning food of any kind on the blog or on Facebook results in the most hits and gets people talking. I had a Facebook request for Watergate salad last week, and one reader told me he’s been enjoying the teasing about favorite Southern foods. He asked me what foods are unique to the North. Uhhh, Boston baked beans? Philly cheese steaks?
I got to thinking that maybe I should add pages here for sharing recipes, Southern and Northern. I have some humdingers and I’m sure many of you do, too. Several foodie bloggers have subscribed to Carolina Yankee, and I’m sure they’d be delighted to share some of their secrets with us. As a matter of fact, I found this Down-Home Macaroni & Cheese recipe buried among many others on the Ranting Chef‘s blog. I’ll bet it rivals the one I shared with you yesterday. I have no intention of turning this into a food blog, but it might be fun to open up a page for recipes and commentary on the foods we love and hate from both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line. Let me know of your interest either through the comments section below or on the Carolina Yankee Facebook page.
Speaking of which, if you haven’t visited the Carolina Yankee Facebook page, you’re missing out on stuff I don’t have time to post here. Good stuff. Funny stuff. With pictures. Head there now, “like” the page, and you’ll begin seeing the Carolina Yankee in your news feed. And you can follow me on Twitter @CarolynahYankee.
