I realized today food goes to waste in my house unless it’s southern comfort food. By that I mean louisiana chicken wings, mashed potatoes,chicken cordon bleu bake, jalapeno cornbread, chili, bread pudding, potato salad, mac salad. You get the idea.
Anyway, I’ll be cooking my husbands friends breakfast/lunches for extra money now. The problem is I’d like to stock up my pantry with the southern comfort delights so I can cook and never run out (hopefully).
What do I get besides chicken stock and cream of mushroom soup?
grits with butter and grated cheese (or a grits casserole)
sausage for sausage gravy and biscuits
rice (not instant), plain or red rice
squash for a casserole
fried fresh fish, dipped in cornmeal
greens (you can buy them frozen instead of spending lots of time prepping fresh ones) (collard, turnip, etc.)
fresh coconut cake
Lousiana chicory coffee
Sweetened ice tea
Mrs. Wilkes’ Squash Casserole
from Mrs. Wilke’s in Savannah, GA
4 lb. yellow squash
1 medium onion
1 tsp. pepper
1 T. salt
½ cup water
½ stick margarine
1 cup mushroom soup
Slice squash and onion in saucepan. Cook in water over medium heat about 20 minutes. Drain in colander. Mash and add other ingredients, place in baking dish and cover top with 1 cup grated American cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
My Grandma Mitchell’s Macaroni and Cheese
1 lb. box elbow macaroni
1 lb. mild Cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c. margarine, melted
2 13-oz. cans evaporated milk
salt and pepper to taste
Cook macaroni in boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain well and dump into a big bowl. Add grated cheese, reserving 1/2 c. to sprinkle on top. Stir in cheese until melted. Stir in margarine and eggs; stir well to distribute evenly. Add milk. Mixture will be fairly liquid. Pour into 13×9" pan, sprinkle with reserved cheese on top. Bake at 350F, for 45 minutes, until set. Serves 8.
Note: I cut the recipe in half for my smaller family, and it was still wonderful!

Home to one of the state’s oldest European settlements, central Louisiana serves up dishes that naturally reflect the diverse cultures that settled here. Food is an obsession in this part of the world and the love and attention that go into every dish — from the field to the table — is celebrated with every meal. Focusing on freshness, the mild climate and rich soils allow a wide variety of vegetables to be grown year round and the many bayous and rivers in addition to the close proximity to the Coast make seafood an important ingredient in this cuisine.

Yes, it is not a liquid or something like toothpaste — only can have 3 oz. each item of liquid or toothpaste or any cream type produce (such as face cream)
Chewing gum is okay to have in hang luggage (carry-on luggage)
