That being said, I would still insist that any person with a drop of precious Southern blood should obtain this book as well as the other two in the series as they are perfect gifts for anyone who prefers Co-Cola to Pepsi, Ford F150 trucks to Chevy pick-ups, and homemade mayonnaise to Miracle Whip..Some Day You'll Thank Me for This: The Official Southern Ladies' Guide to Being a "Perfect" Mother
Each chapter is followed by several traditional Southern recipes you will immediately recognize from afternoon teas, family holiday dinners, and funeral food.
Get your grand-daughter to read it aloud to you while you polish the silver. It will entertain you and improve her diction!
While I was born in Southern California and raise in Southern Maine, I moved south as soon as I was able. This book is hilarious, insightful and explained so much of what I have experienced living in the deep south. What a great sense of humor the authors have. The book made me realize that while Southern mothers may have a list of rules they live by and instill in there daughters (and sons), "the rules" were very similar to the many rules lessons my grandmother and her many friends instilled in me "up North". I may be a damned Yankee, but this was a wonderful book and helped me to understand a number of social encounters I have had while living in the South. A very enjoyable, funny, and insightful book which made me realize my upbringing had more in common with the South than I had realized. And yes the recipes are to die for. Thank you so much for sharing. If you are from any other part of the country and would like a good chuckle and learn about the wonderful culture of the South....READ THIS BOOK!
The recipes look absolutely yummy!
I always pick up one of the books when I am feeling down, for a laugh, you will get one too. Don't forget to send for Gifts!!
