must eats

I'm utterly copying my friend Brendan at City Planning on this one. Garden & Gun has John T. Edge summing up the quintessential southern dining fare and its extremes in, "100 Southern Foods You Absolutely, Positively Must Try Before You Die."
About the project John T. Edge says:

“Southern food is all about the low and the high. On the one hand, it’s a pig ear sandwich, devoured beneath the glare of an overhead fluorescent at a stand-up counter in Jackson, Mississippi. On the other, it’s a pâté of chicken liver, savored, with a tumbler of bourbon, at a damask-draped table in Charleston, South Carolina. This roster includes both of those dishes. And it maps both extremes.”

My darling pal Carrie Hohmann may have just gotten the best absence excuse ever...

"I didnt make it to class because I accidently set off the fire alarm last night when I was warming up a cookie in the microwave in order to melt the frosting."

Extra credit, actually?
