Menu Mondays

Hello All,

Okay I have a dish for you today to really fill your stomach. I love southern cooking and my favorite foodnetwork cook is Paula Dean. She is the best to me when it come to down home cooking. Well, this dish isn't from her but I think it has a southern flair. Give it a try:
